Leon vs Santos for the Mexican Liga MX Apertura championship match on Thursday at León Stadium.
Match corresponding to day 7 of the Liga Mx Apertura tournament, León and Santos will face each other in a very close match, and with many emotions, the stage for the duel will be the León Stadium.
Leon, the local team, is sixth in the standings, but with one match less than the other squads, so if Santos Laguna wins now and their pending game they’ll become the leader of the tournament.
The beast has started 2019 on a regular basis, in the 5 games they have played, won 3, drew 1 and lost 1, but it is worth mentioning that of these duels, they have already faced direct teams such as Querétaro, América and Monterrey, for what with the passing of the days will be the most accessible teams and this is a plus in favour of the “Green Trousers”.
Santos Laguna, the visiting team is the current leader of the Liga Mx Apertura Tournament, has added 15 points, achieving 5 wins and one loss, it is worth mentioning that Santos has had a more accessible path than Leon, because in their first 3 games had easy rivals such as Juarez who recently ascended and Atlas with Puebla, teams that did not do well last season.
They also played Necaxa that has started the year well and now fights among the best 8, so they are a strong team this season, it should be added that this has been the only team that so far beat Santos.
In the previous match they defeated Monterrey 2-1 at home, direct rival, in a game that could end more evenly, however, the visitors missed several scoring chances.
In conclusion, at the start of this Mx League, the standings do not indicate how well a team is playing, Santos Laguna has won their matches well, but as I mentioned it had more accessible rivals.
On the other hand, Leon has already faced with weight rivals in these 5 rounds, and despite not having lost with Monterrey as a visitor and tied with America as a local, we can say that in both games they played quite well.
As for clashes, Leon’s stadium has seen clashes 9 times, of which the owners won 7 times, while Monterrey did it once and drew only once.
The statistics are clear for the “Esmeraldas”, besides the most recent victory was in 2019 Clausura Tournament, that time Leon defeated Santos Laguna 3-0. So we can say that Los Panza’s Verdes at home are a solid and lethal team.
