Last Updated on October 25, 2022 6:38 pm by Erwin Noguera

The time has come to know the new champion of Liga MX. Two teams rose above the rest and won their place in the grand final of the Apertura 2022 Tournament; one that will be unprecedented in the history of Mexican soccer, as it will be between Pachuca and Toluca. None other than the clubs that have won the most championships in Liga MX; since the beginning of the short tournament era in 1996.

The road to reaching this great final has not been easy for either of the two teams. They have had to eliminate complicated teams such as JuárezSantos, and América in the case of Toluca, as well as Tigres UANL and Monterrey on the part of Pachuca, so the last series of 2022 in Mexican soccer will face two very similar styles that are characterized by being purely offensive, and which will be led by Ignacio Ambriz and Guillermo Almada.

Thanks to the aforementioned offensive power, we expect this Liguilla final to be full of goals. In addition, Toluca did not have an impeccable defense in this opening tournament.

As has been the custom since the creation of short tournaments in Liga MX, the grand final will not be played as a single match but will follow a round-robin format in which Toluca and Pachuca will have to leave everything on the field to win the championship trophy in this Apertura 2022 Tournament.

The first leg of the Liga MX final will be this Thursday, October 27, 2022, at the Nemesio Diez Stadium, home of Toluca, at 4:00 pm ET.

Why Bet on Toluca?

Toluca holds the upper hand against the Tuzos, having won 25 of the 62 games they have played, losing 19, and drawing the remaining 28. In addition, the Diablos Rojos scored 10 more goals than their rivals in those matches.

However, in the current Apertura 2022 Tournament, Pachuca crushed 4-1 Toluca at the Nemesio Diez Stadium itself, so they come with the confidence of having won this season on the road and will be looking to apply the same dose. Without going too far, this year, in the two matches they have faced each other, Pachuca has crushed Toluca, scoring 7 goals, and conceding just 1.

This final will undoubtedly mean the end of a title drought for the team that manages to win. Toluca could win its 11th championship trophy after 12 years since beating Santos Laguna in 2010. Since then, Toluca has worked to reach the final three times, but in the Apertura 2012 and Clausura 2018, they were defeated by Tijuana and Santos Laguna respectively.

Why Bet on Pachuca?

On the other hand, the Tuzos are searching for their 7th Liga MX title by reaching their second consecutive final, and thus being able to avenge the defeat suffered in the Clausura 2022 against AtlasPachuca has not lifted a Liga MX championship trophy since the 2016 Apertura when they defeated Monterrey, and with Atlas out of the way, this looks like the perfect opportunity to do so.

Final Betting Analisis: Toluca vs. Pachuca

This match between Pachuca and Toluca has occurred a total of 5 times in the history of the Liguilla in short tournaments. The Tuzos have won one quarterfinal, while three semifinals have gone to Toluca and the remaining one to Pachuca

There is no doubt that there will be plenty of excitement in this great final. Likewise, our prediction for this first leg of the Liga MX final is a 2-1 victory for Toluca.
