Look for an exciting match that could very well be a preview of what we might see in the playoffs.
Santos is one of the best home teams in the league, having won four out of five matches played at the TSM. Morelia, on the other hand, is one of the best away teams in the Liga MX, they have accumulated a total of 11 away points out of 18 possible. That is why this Santos vs Morelia match is setting up to be the must-watch game of the week.
Santos currently sits in 6th place with 17 points, a win over Morelia would place them in a very comfortable spots and quite close to the playoffs. This is a team that has only lost once this season, and is coming off an away draw at Pachuca, before that, it defeated the red-hot Club America at home. Santos and Caixinha will want to continue their winning ways over Morelia, a team that has proven to be good all season long.
Coach Bustos has led Morelia to a very successful season, currently sitting in third place with 20 points. Morelia’s strength is its offense, second best in the Liga MX with 22. Bustos’ strategy is to overwhelm the opposing team with offense, even if it means he allows some as well (Morelia has allowed 16 goals this season). Look for Morelia to play an offensive style and take the game right to Santos.
