Club Leon and Santos Laguna will square off at the Estadio Leon on Tuesday at 3:00am (UK Time), with both sides looking to extend their unbeaten runs in Liga MX.
Club Leon have been by far the best team in Liga MX this season. Their sole defeat of the campaign came on the road to Cruz Azul at the beginning of August. Los Verdiblancos head into this clash on the back of a twelve-game unbeaten streak in the league, having won ten in that run.
Ignacio Ambriz’s side have won each of their last six league outings, which includes a narrow 2-1 victory at Puebla last time out. The 2014 champions currently sit comfortably at the top of the Liga MX table, with five points more than 2nd-placed Club America and with a game in hand.
At home, Club Leon haven’t lost a single game since a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Atletico Morelia back in December 2019. They are also undefeated in their last two home meetings with Santos Laguna.
The visitors meanwhile have also enjoyed a solid run of form lately, having won four and drawn one of their last five games in Liga MX. They now find themselves ninth in the standings, just seven points behind third-placed Pumas.
It seems that Santos Laguna have finally found the right defensive formula, as they have only conceded three goals in the previous five games in the league. They also looked solid on the road, having won back-to-back games at Toluca and Puebla over the past two months.
Furthermore, Santos should feel confident ahead of this match as they have won three of the last five meetings with Club Leon while losing just once. So, can Club Leon register a seventh win in a row in Liga MX? Or will Santos Laguna maintain their recent head-to-head advantage over Club Leon?
