Pumas vs. Cruz Azul Preview and Free Pick

Last Updated on March 27, 2024 3:00 pm by Erwin Noguera

We have a remarkable match as we enter the 13th matchday in the Clausura MX 2024. Two teams in crisis as Pumas and Cruz Azul face trying to bounce back from poor runs.

The felines have three games and a draw in the last four matches and fell 3-0 the last time against Toluca.

The Cementeros come from the same number of losses in their last four, although with a win sandwiched in between. Their previous game for the league was a poor 1-2 loss against Necaxa at home.

The time is running down to lock down a place in the top four and evade the Play-in, so it is necessary to start getting wins again now.

Where Can I Watch? 


Why Bet on Pumas?

The hosts are placed on the 11th spot of the scoreboard, having even four wins, four draws, and four losses currently. However, as said before, things are not looking good considering their momentum, as they haven’t had a victory in their last four, more than a month.

After a good 3-0 triumph against Santos, then came a 3-1 loss against Chivas, followed by a 3-0 beat down from Monterrey, a 3-3 draw with Tijuana, and finally, another 3-0 loss at the hands of Toluca.

The only consistent thing is that a flawed defense from their side has continued to take three goals in each of the last four encounters.

Why Bet on Cruz Azul?

The visitors are trying to catch up to the teams that just jumped over them in the last matchday, as their two-match losing streak has sent them from the top spot to 4th in their last few games. They have seven wins, one draw, and four losses run, and they are looking to get back on the win column.

Cruz Azul may not be getting the desired results, but they are still a strong team this season, having scored 17 goals and only taking eleven as of this moment.

That showcases that their defense has been effective overall, even though their last clash ended in a 2-1 score in favor of Necaxa after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Santos Laguna.

They will need to get back into their regular form, as the other top teams are slowly getting ahead, and more mistakes will not allow them to reach a Monterrey that was tied with “La Maquina Cementera” not too long ago. 

Final Betting Analysis: Pumas vs. Cruz Azul

The fact that Pumas will be getting to host this clash may not help them much at all. Even though the betting odds seem to be kind of even coming into this clash, we have to mention it: taking three goals in each of your last four Liga MX matches is a huge red flag on your momentum.

Cruz Azul has had a pretty efficient defense overall, having only looked bad against Santos Laguna, and we believe their offense is going to be able to make Pumas’ streak go up to five games in a row while keeping their net well-defended as they hand them another dose.

We go for Cruz Azul to take the three points once these two teams meet on the field this Saturday Night. We’ll go for a 2-3.
