Mazatlan FC vs Puebla Prediction & Betting tips
Mazatlán and Puebla meet forces, in a match for the 1st round of the Primera División. These two teams have never met before, so this will be their first direct confrontation.
The home team got the promotion in the previous season, so it will make its debut with great expectation and enthusiasm.
Mazatlán FC is a team that has just been founded. In fact, it was previously called Monarcas Morelia, but the team completely changed its identity. In addition to the name, it also changed its brand and the city of its headquarters. All this during the Mexican soccer stop. The team roster, however, remains the same and, despite being in transition, is always very strong when acting in its domains. So much so that, in the first home game since football returned to the country, the team tied without goals with the strong Tigre. Since then he has lost twice playing away from home, for the Mexico Cup, against difficult opponents. Therefore, in this home match the team must be eager to debut in a new competition with a home win.
This is the first match in this edition of the away team competition, which finished the previous edition in 10th position. The team comes to this match after an away win against Atlético San Luis by (0‑1). In the last 10 away matches for all competitions, Puebla have won 3, tied 2 and lost 5. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 7 of the last 17 matches have ended with Under 1.5 goals and 14 in 17 have ended with under 2.5 goals. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 7 times and never got the comeback. In the last 13 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 10 goals between minutes (46′ ‑ 60 ‘).
This match is practically a debut for the visiting team, which has not been on the field for an official competition since March 14, when they beat Atlético San Luis away from home by (0-1) in a match for the tenth round. del Clausura 2020. In addition to being back after just over 4 months, this team does not have a good record against Mazatlán, former Monarcas Morelia: they did not win 9 games ago (since September 2016). Therefore, it is unlikely that Puebla will be able to surprise this rival by playing away from home, especially after a long period without playing.
