Necaxa haven’t exactly had impressive attacking statistics in more recent games. Their sum of goals stands at just 4 versus opposition teams over the course of their last six fixtures. In those meetings, Lightning Bolts have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them total 8.
Coming into this contest, Necaxa haven’t won at home in the past 3 league games.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Santos Laguna in Liga MX (Apertura) competition, Club Tijuana and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that match, Club Tijuana had 49% possession and 5 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. The only player to score for Club Tijuana was Vladimir Loroña (36' Own goal). On the other side, Santos Laguna got 17 shots at goal with 7 on target. Gael Sandoval (23') scored for Santos Laguna.
The stats tell the story, and Club Tijuana have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 7 goals in total. Defensively, Xoloitzcuintles can certainly do much better. With no two games being the same, we must now wait to see if that pattern shall be replicated in this next game or not.
Coming into this meeting, Club Tijuana are without a win away from home in their last 10 league matches. Who knows how long it might last, too.

With a fully injury-free group ready to go, Club Tijuana manager Pablo Guede doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all coming into this clash.
We envisage that Club Tijuana are capable enough to break down this Necaxa lineup, but it is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We think that it’s going to be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Necaxa at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
