Halcones de Morelos vs Club Universidad Nacional II: Preview and Prediction

Club Universidad Nacional II have taken just one point from their last three Mexico. Segunda Division matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Club Universidad Nacional II are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Halcones de Morelos should prove no easy feat either – Club Universidad Nacional II haven’t won against any Mexico. Segunda Division leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Halcones de Morelos have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Halcones de Morelos dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Mexico. Segunda Division’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Halcones de Morelos are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Halcones de Morelos and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Halcones de Morelos’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Club Universidad Nacional II are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Club Universidad Nacional II took a point away from Halcones de Morelos (1-1 draw).

Notably, Halcones de Morelos’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Halcones de Morelos have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Mexico. Segunda Division away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Club Universidad Nacional II, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Club Universidad Nacional II getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Club Universidad Nacional II are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Halcones de Morelos hold the best away record in the Mexico. Segunda Division (W8 D2 L1). Club Universidad Nacional II’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Halcones de Morelos’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Halcones de Morelosns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Halcones de Morelos win at 15/2 with bet365.
