León vs Monterrey – Two of the strongest teams in Mexico will square off at Estadio León on Saturday night. Host León surged to the top of the table by beating Monarcas Morelia 2-1 last weekend. It has won three out of four games so far in Torneo Clausura and it looks extremely dangerous in attack. Yet Monterrey will provide a stern test of its mettle. Los Royados won the Apertura championship in December, following on from their victory in the CONCACAF Champions League, and they are a superb team.
Monterrey Dominates Head-to-Heads
León has not beaten Monterrey since February 2014. These teams have met 11 times since then, resulting in nine wins for Monterrey and two draws. That might make you tempted to bet on an away win in this game. Monterrey is priced at +200 with 888 Sport and it is also offering a very attractive +120 on Monterrey draw no bet.
Los Royados Struggle for Form
However, Los Royados have made a sluggish start to Torneo Clausura. They began their campaign with a 2-2 home draw against Monarcas, and then lost 1-0 to 1-0 to Puma. Next up Monterrey suffered 2-1 home defeat against Querétaro, before drawing 2-2 with Necaxa last time out. That leaves it second from bottom in the tavle, with just two points from four games.
León vs Monterrey Betting Tips
León is in great form, but it seems risky to back Ignacio Ambriz’s men to win this game, as they have such a dreadful record against Monterrey. It might be better to simply bet on the goals market. León has scored in all four Clausura games so far, but it has only kept one clean sheet. Monterrey has not yet kept a clean sheet, and it has scored in three of its four games. You can find -150 on both teams to score in this match – a bet that paid off in the last two head-to-head meetings between them – while 888 Sport has -105 on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.
