Atlas vs Necaxa Soccer Prediction
Day 7 of the Liga MX started with a duel that has two teams in very different situations. On the one hand and in condition of local one Rojinegros of the Atlas that are in need of points since they are in the last place of the league, and on the other Rays of the Necaxa that as a visitor have had a great performance in this tournament.
Atlas is currently the sotanero of the MX league as it occupies the 18th place in the general classification table with just 3 points result of his only victory against Cruz Azul, and also with 5 defeats behind him. Only 6 goals scored by 13 received are frightening numbers for a team that the previous season agreed to the league. If it seems that after that victory against Cruz Azul the players were gradually taking the ideas of the new coach, before Lobos BUAPS was a totally blank team, without ideas, without attitude on the pitch, and, above all, very weak in defense.
The good news for the “rojinegros” is that Rafael Marquez is ready to reappear after his injury. Rafa is the biggest player of the team, he is the captain and with more experience, it is good that he comes back, he has that hierarchy and he is also a coach on the court. On many occasions he knew how to guide the team to victory with his performance and attitude. in the field of play. Without a doubt it is great news for the whole of Jalisco.
A breath for this game is undoubtedly that the only victory so far in the tournament came before a very superior team like Cruz Azul, precisely in a complicated moment and before their fans, so they will try to repeat the story once again.
Analysis of Necaxa
It took 12 years for Necaxa to beat the machine at the Blue Stadium and La Maquina to end the losing streak that had taken place since the Apertura 2006 tournament. Dieter Villalpando and Carlos González Espínola were the authors of Necaxa’s victory over Blue Cross. With this victory they reached eight points and only placed just 1 point from the 8th place that gives ticket for the postseason.
In addition, Necaxa could not win two consecutive games as a visitor in the league, since he did it for the last time in the 14th and 16th days of the 2017 Clausura. It was precisely as a visitor that the team was the best, they went out to propose and in the The last games have recovered that defensive solidity that characterized them during the previous tournament. They maintained their goal in 0 against Toluca, León and Cruz Azul, with a considerable offensive cast if we take into account the level of the players they have.
The history between these sets mainly favors the Necaxa Rays. In the last 5 matches 2 wins with 3 draws has been the balance of the clashes. Although it must be said that Necaxa’s last victory in Jalisco dates back to the 2010 Apertura.
After analyzing all the previous elements, the performance of both teams in the previous day, the bad situation of Atlas as well as the victories of Necaxa as a visitor leaving the goal in zero of their rivals, I consider that the “Rays” of the Necaxa come out as favorites to take all 3 points in this game.
