The Morelia vs Chivas Liga MX Week 15 match will take place this Friday, October 25, 2013 (5:30 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Morelos. As the home team, we have a Morelia squad that is fighting to secure a spot in the playoffs, on the other side, we have one of the worst Chivas teams in recent history. The game will likely be heavily tilted in favor of the home team, which still has something to play for this season, unlike Chivas.
Morelia will very likely clinch a spot in the playoffs with a victory over Chivas, as that would put them at 26 points, and in a safe spot with two more games still left to play. Morelia’s success is due in great part to the fantastic season the aging striker, Mancilla, has had this season, where he has scored 8 goals.
Morelia’s successful season is also demonstrated by the fact that they have made it to the Copa MX final against Atlas. This past Tuesday, Morelia traveled to Monterrey and defeated the Rayados 3-0. Everything looks to be in favor of Monarcas.
Chivas is the worst team in the Liga MX, that cannot be denied. Juan Carlos Ortega has been unable to win any of the 8 matches he has coached. A long time ago knocked out from the Copa MX and Liga MX playoff contention, this team has nothing left to play for, and it has shown.
To further complicate things for Chivas, they will be missing two key attacking players: Aldo de Nigris is out with the Mexican National Team, while Carlos Fierro is out with a broken nose. Even history is against Chivas: Chivas has won only 1 of the last 10 times they have played Morelia.
Chivas fans, get ready for another loss.
Morelia vs Chivas Prediction
No doubt about this one, Morelia will win. Monarcas is coming off a big victory over Monterrey in the Copa MX, and will want to finish off a great week by classifying to the playoffs via a victory over Chivas. Chivas is awful. The Morelia vs Chivas match will end in a 3-1 win for Monarcas.
