Reason For Veracruz vs Lobos BUAP Betting Tips
Saturday’s Liga MX Clausura action features a crunch clash between Veracruz and Lobos BUAP. Plenty of action is expected at both ends of the pitch as the two fight for the all important 3 points.
There’s certainly a feeling of make or break around this clash for Veracruz. Win and they’ll back in with a glimmer of hope of surviving; lose and they can start packing their bags now. Rock bottom of the average points table and with no realistic hope of catching any other side bar Lobos, it’s a fixture the hosts simply have to win.
However, having taken just 10 points from 17 matches over the Apertura stage of the campaign and having not won in 11 straight league matches; that’s something easier said than done and confidence is very low in home ranks right now. A 0-0 draw at UNAM Pumas in the closing phase opener at least showed some resolve but it’s wins Veracruz need and nothing about them suggests they’re forthcoming.
Meanwhile, Lobos were actually supposed to be relegated last season but were spared due to the team set to replace them failing to gain a top flight licence. Nonetheless, that left them bottom of the average points table and favourites for the drop this campaign but through a combination of their own good work and Veracruz’s struggles, they now look on course to survive.
Indeed, Lobos finished the opening stage of the season in 13th place, with their 19 point haul seeing them move comfortably above Veracruz and a few other sides in the all important average points table. An excellent 2-0 win over Santos Laguna last weekend to kick off the Clausura has further strengthened that position and having now won 3 of their last 4 league matches, spirits are high in visiting ranks.
Ultimately, this is a match in which Veracruz have to come out all guns blazing and with Lobos unlikely to sit back themselves against an opponent they’ll view as vulnerable, an open style of game is almost certain to be on the cards.
As such, backing goals at both ends looks a great way to play and is exactly where our money is going with maximum confidence. A staggering average of 3.6 goals per game have been on display in Veracruz’s last 5 Liga MX home games and with both nets having been found in 4 of Lobos’ last 5 away league outings; it’s a bet that really appeals and we can envisage the match ending in an entertaining 2-2 draw.
Head to Head
Lobos beat Veracruz 2-0 in the opening stage of the campaign and have won the last 3 meetings between the two, as well as going 5 matches unbeaten against the hosts.
