Juárez vs León – Two of the most entertaining teams in Liga MX will lock horns at Estadio Olimpico Benito Juárez on Sunday. Juárez climbed up to fifth in the Clausura standings by beating Atlético San Luis 3-0 last weekend. It has now won three of its last five games. León dropped down to third place following its surprise 2-0 defeat to Guadalajara. That was the first time it has failed to score in a game since Torneo Clausura began in January. Juárez has also found the back of the net in seven out of eight games thus far. Both teams leak goals, so we should be in for an entertaining clash in Juárez.
León Bidding for Glory
Juárez is a new team, so these sides have only played each other once before. That took place at Estadio León in September 2019, and León won 3-1. Ignacio Ambríz’s men had the best record in Liga MX during 2019. They finished top of the standings in the 2019 Clausura championship, and then second in the Apertura championship. However, they flopped in the playoffs on both occasions. León remains a consistent side, and it boasts more attacking firepower than most of its domestic rivals. It is just let down by its defensive weaknesses.
Juárez vs León Betting Tips
The same could prove to be true of Juárez, which has scored 17 and conceded 11 this season. León has scored 16 and conceded 12, meaning that games featuring these teams see an average of 3.5 goals. Both teams to score therefore looks like an appealing bet in this game. However, the odds are a little short on that selection. For more value, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals looks great at -105 with 888 Sport. An alternative bet would be both teams to score and under 4.5 goals at +105.d
