Santos Laguna vs Necaxa – Bettors across the world will tune in to watch Santos host Necaxa at Estadio Corona on Sunday. Liga MX is one of the only leagues in the world that has not cancelled games over coronavirus fears. Sports fans are now turning their attention to Mexico, and some have joked that the handle on these games will be greater than the Super Bowl. There is a big Mexico City derby taking place between Club América and Cruz Azul on Sunday, but this game looks more attractive for bettors.
Estadio Corona is a Fortress
Santos has enjoyed magnificent home form throughout the 2019/20 campaign. It had the best home record in Torneo Apertura, with eight wins and a draw from nine games. Guillermo Almada’s men fell apart in the playoffs, but they have maintained that strong home form in Torneo Clausura. They have three wins and a draw from four games so far. Necaxa has lost four of its last five games, and that has seen it tumble down to 12th in the table. Its only victory in that spell came against América, which had two men sent off. Necaxa has otherwise endured a poor run of results in recent weeks, which could leave it low on confidence.
