Santos Laguna vs Toluca – Liga MX Playoffs.
11th May 2017 – 03:30, Estadio Nuevo Corona, Torreon.
The second playoff match of Liga MX quarter – finals will be played on early Thursday morning in Torreon. The home team Santos Laguna will be looking to gain some advantage before the 2nd leg match against Toluca on Sunday, and judging by the odds, they have decent shot to achieve it.
The hosts are also known in Mexico as “masters of draws”, as the majority of their games this season ended without winner (five out of the last eight duels). They have ended the regular season on 5th position, just one point less than their opponents Toluca, which is another stat pointing at tight match up.
The visiting team was positioned way better in early April. They are currently on a bad streak, winless for five weeks (three losses and two draws), so Toluca’s fans are keeping their expectations low for the 1st leg match.
Considering the visitors are going through a crisis, while Santos rarely lose a game at home, we see decent value in backing victory for the hosts at 1/1 rate.
It is also interesting to mention that these two sides have met in the last round of the regular season as well, at this same stadium. It was a duel between mixed lienups, eventually ended 2 – 2 even though Toluca have had huge lead.
The biggest threat for the visiting defenders will be coming from Jorge Djaniny who scored a couple of very important goals for Santos Laguna this year.
When it comes to the alternatives, we will got with Both teams to score pick at 7/10 odds.
