We get to the penultimate matchday of the Apertura MX 2023 Regular Season, which means the teams are already over the clock to reach their best possible position. One way or another, the top positions of the table are already taking shape, so let’s take a look at an interesting match between two teams with different realities but that, in their own way, are not at their best: Chivas vs. Cruz Azul.
While the ‘Rebaño Sagrado’ is desperately trying to lock a place at the top four despite their irregular form, the ‘Cementeros’ are in dire need of points to evade elimination.
Saturday, November 4 at 11:05 p.m. ET at the Akron Stadium
Cruz Azul +275
Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Chivas?
Guadalajara is hosting the clash, and the 4th-placed team has a great opportunity to seal the deal and lock their place on the Liguilla by taking another victory.
The “Rebaño Sagrado” comes to the match with 24 points, corresponding to 7 wins, 3 draws, and 5 losses. If they win, they could rise to third place, depending on other results. In their last game, they won 2-1 against Querétaro.
It’s been a tough run for Chivas, who has been bouncing back and forth on the top of the scoreboard for quite a while, so they are likely going to go all out in these last 2 matches to keep their spot secured.
Why Bet on Cruz Azul?
Cruz Azul has had its ups and downs during the season, with 5 wins, 2 draws, and 8 losses so far, landing them in the 14th spot of the scoreboard, but at arms reach from making it to the top 10 and a Liguilla playoffs spot.
‘La Maquina’ arrives with a latent need to get 3 points from Jalisco, to not let their postseason hopes vanish. The team from the country’s capital already has 2 consecutive victories, the last being 2-0 against Juárez.
This is one of their last few shots to get a spot in the Liguilla playoffs, so they should go all in from now on.
Final Betting Analysis: Chivas vs. Cruz Azul
The match at the Akron Stadium will surely be very close, given that both clubs, in their way, need the 3 points. Chivas seeks to get among the best 3, and Cruz Azul needs to win to continue dreaming of the Liguilla.
We believe that ‘La Maquina’ will get at least one point from the visit, even though the match should be exciting and contested by both sides. So we expect a 2-2 to happen this Saturday night.
If you put $100 into a draw, you could get $260 for a total payout of $360.
