Deportivo Toluca - Coming off a Draw Against FC Juarez (DLWWD)
Going in the last Clausura match day against Necaxa, Toluca will be looking to register a comprehensive win and stretch the winning confidence forward in the playoffs. In the last match against Juarez, Tiago Volpi scored the only goal on penalty in the 45th minute of play. With the likes of Baeza, Saucedo, Mosquera, and Ruiz in the lineup, Toluca will be starting as favorites for winning. With 2 draws, 2 wins, and a defeat in the last five matches played, Toluca is certainly doing better compared to Necaxa. In the last five matches played, Toluca has scored and conceded 10 goals. Hence, Toluca will have to improve its overall defensive play in order to produce comprehensive wins. In the last 10 matches played at home, Toluca averages 2.20 goals per game, whereas the conceding average is 1.60.
Expected Opening Lineup for Deportivo Toluca
Tiago Volpi, Carlos Emilio Orrantia, Andres Mosquera, Valber Huerta, Jorge Torres, Jean Meneses, Marcel Ruíz, Claudio Baeza, Maximiliano Araújo, Edgar Iván López, Carlos González.
Club Necaxa - Lost to Atlas in the Last Outing (LDLDW)
Going in the matchup, Club Necaxa is coming off a defeat against Atlas (1-3), in which Edgar Mendez scored the only goal with an assist made by Agustin Oliveros. Necaxa managed 48% possession and had just 4 shots on target. Necaxa depends on the presence of Esquivel, Pineda, and Monreal in the lineup. However, the team is failing to click together as an agile unit. In the last five matches played, Necaxa has scored just 3 goals, averaging 0.60 goals per game, which is quite under-par compared to other teams in the competition. Against the scoring average, Necaxa has conceded 5 goals, averaging 1.00 goals per game. In the last 10 away matches, Necaxa has scored goals at an average of 0.70 goals and has conceded at an average of 1.40 goals.
Expected Opening Lineup for Club Necaxa
Hugo Gonzalez, Alexis Peña, Fabricio Formiliano, Juan Pablo Segovia, Agustín Oliveros, Bryan Garnica, Fernando Madrigal, José Joaquín Esquivel, Heriberto Jurado, Édgar Méndez, Ricardo Monreal.
Expert Betting Tips
Moving forward in the contest, Toluca has stood unbeaten in its last 7 home matches and has scored at least 2 goals in 7 of the last 10 home fixtures. With a terrific home record, Toluca will be starting as a favorite for winning and dominating Necaxa. Moreover, Necaxa has failed to register a win in the last four matches. I am predicting a one-sided scoreline (2-0) at the end of 90 minutes of play.
