The Leon vs Chivas Liga MX match will take place this Saturday, September 21, 2013 (6:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Nou Camp. This Apertura 2013 match will be the 2nd of three straight matches between the two clubs as they faced each other during the week in the Copa MX, while they will meet once again for the Copa MX during the week.
Leon has been a top contender thus far into the Apertura 2013 of the Liga MX. After 10 games, they sit in 3rd place with 19 points; 5 wins, 4 ties, and only 1 loss. The team coached by Gustavo Matosas focuses entirely on offense, leading to a dynamic style of play. Ironically, Leon has not scored many goals (12), while their defense is the best in the league by only receiving 6.
Chivas of Guadalajara is on a 3 game undefeated streak, in which they have tied their past three matches. While playing under new coach Juan Carlos Ortega, Chivas has tied 3 and lost 1, meaning Ortega is still looking for his first win. The ‘goats’ have played well as of late, but they are very weak on defense, where they allow many easy goals after amateur displays.
Saturday’s game between Leon and Chivas will be the 2nd of three straight games between the two teams. Last Wednesday, they tied at the Nou Camp where Leon used an alternate squad, while Chivas used mostly starters. This Saturday Leon will undeniably play with their full strength, which raises the question as to how well Chivas will respond against a much tougher squad than the one they faced in the Copa MX.
Leon vs Chivas Prediction
The Leon vs Chivas match is one of the best matches in Week 11 of the Liga MX. Both teams come in good form, and while Chivas is urged to obtain a win, Leon could reach the 1st place with the 3 points. Saturday will be a tough test for Chivas, as they are the underdogs against the top defense in the league. The Leon vs Chivas match will end in a 2-1 win for the locals.
