Pumas vs. Monterrey: an experience to feel

An excellent Mexican soccer game awaits us this Sunday 7/31, since Andrés Lillini's National University Club, better known as Pumas UNAM, will play against Rayados de Monterrey led by Víctor Manuel Vucetich. Both teams need victory for similar reasons, as Pumas wants to climb to the top positions and the Rayados want to stay on top for at least a few more dates.

As we will detail later, the sports bets indicate that the match will be very close, but even so, Lillini's team has a superior team quality to a large part of the competitors in the current Apertura tournament, which is why they have serious chances of winning, at least, a tie in his hard visit to the house of the auriazules.

Last 10 Pumas matches

The auriazules come to this difficult game with a very negative streak, as they could only win 2 games of their last 10, tied 4 and lost the remaining 4. Their only 2 victories corresponded to the Liga México forecasts since they occurred at home, and we are talking about the 2-0 against the difficult Pachuca and the 1-0 against Necaxa on the recent 7/17. His passage through the current Opening 2022 is being quite discreet.

But even so, they did not lose a single game, since they tied the first two, won the next one and the most recent result is 0-0 against Pachuca as a visitor, something very difficult to achieve if we consider that the Tuzos have just finished runner-up in past championship. They are currently in seventh position, and if they become strong at home and take the victory, they could climb to the top positions, as long as there are a series of results that favor them.

In the last 10 matches they converted 11 goals and suffered 18, which leaves a remarkably negative balance of -7 goals against. From this data, we can specify that they have shortcomings in both attack and defense, since it is difficult for them to convert goals and in turn they come easily. Of the 18, Chivas converted a total of 7.

The following matches on the calendar are: Puebla (F), they will play the Joan Gamper trophy against Barcelona, ​​and will return to Liga MX against América (L), Atlético San Luis (L), Santos Laguna (L), Tigres (L), Guadalajara (V), Atlas (V), Querétaro (L) and vs. Toluca as visitors.

Last 10 Monterrey matches

The Rayados de Monterrey arrive as the current leaders of the Apertura 2022, something predictable by sports forecasts if we consider the good team they have with Rogelio Funes Mori at the helm. However, their record of the last 10 games is not too good, as they won 4 times, lost 5 times and drew 0-0 against Atlas on 4/20.

In the last tournament they broke the Liga México predictions by losing on penalties against Atlético San Luis at the beginning of the Playoffs. However, they started this championship in a good way, because although in their first game they fell in an unusual (and exciting) 4-3 way against Santos Laguna, they were later able to reverse the situation by beating America 3-2 with a great game. of Alfonso González, visited and defeated Atlético San Luis by 0-1, and their most recent result is a 0-3 win over Querétaro with a goal by Funes Mori.

If we talk about the last 10 games played, in them they scored a total of 14 goals and suffered another 14, which leaves a neutral balance of 0 goals. However, in the current tournament the record is 9-6.

Those from Monterrey will play against: León (L), Necaxa (V), Toluca (V), Tigres (L), Guadalajara (V), Tijuana (V), Mazatlán (L), Cruz Azul (L), Juárez ( V), and against Atlas at home.

Background between both

The history between these two good Mexican teams shows that the Rayados de Monterrey have a small advantage of only 3 games, as they met 60 times, with 25 for the albiazules, 22 for the Pumas and 13 draws.

One of the most remembered crosses for both fans occurred in 2012, in which they had to play for the semifinal of the CONCACAF Champions League and Monterrey, fulfilled the sports predictions by taking the victory with a 4-1 aggregate.

Although the lineups are not yet confirmed, we can assure you that center forward Juan Dinen will not start as a starter for Pumas. This great Argentine area 9 is characterized by his strength and jump, scoring several header goals also for measuring 1.86cm. In addition to him, on the wings they probably have the presence of Sebastián Saucedo on one side and Diogo Barbosa on the other, two very fast and agile wingers who overflow whenever they can.

On the Monterrey side, sports forecasts show that the starting center forward could be Rogelio Funes Mori, a great scorer for the team who, by dint of goals, even wore the Mexico shirt and may even go to the World Cup. In the right sector will play Maximiliano Meza, a very fast Argentine winger who is skilled at dribbling rivals.

Sports bets

In the field of sports betting consulted, the possibilities are very even as in practically all the games of this competitive league. If you go for direct winner Pumas, the odds rise to 2.8, while the draw is currently quoted at 3.45 and the striped victory is at 2.45.

When the odds are so even, what we recommend is to go directly to the double chance to combine them with another result that is to our liking. In this case, “Pumas-empate” pays almost 1.6 and “Monterrey-empate” (our favorite) at 1.45. That both teams score can happen without problems, and they will pay you almost 1.75 for each peso invested.
