The Leon vs Santos Laguna Liga MX match will be played this Saturday, February 22, 2014 (6:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Nou Camp. This game is one of the most attractive during this Week 8 weekend of the Clausura 2014 as the two Copa Libertadores participants from Mexico face-off. Apart from that, these two sides have improved their form lately, which will give the viewers a good quality game.
Panzas Verdes and Laguneros have what it takes to play one of the best games this weekend. Although their participation in the Libertadores may lead both coaches to use semi-alternate starting lineups, these two sides still have enough talent to perform in high standards. The last time Leon and Santos faced each other was in the Apertura 2013 semifinals where the ‘Fiera’ eliminated the team from Torreon, and eventually won the championship.
The team coached by Gustavo Matosas has not had a successful season after seven games in the Clausura 2014. With only 8 points, Leon is playing like a mid-table team, although that can be justified as they have chosen to focus on the Libertadores rather than the Liga MX.
Meanwhile, Santos Laguna has been a little more successful after earning 10 points in the first seven games. The team coached by Pedro Caixinha has not played with the reserves, which raises the question as to which lineup he will use against Leon. With a win, Santos would reach 13 points, and sit on a good playoff position.
Leon vs Santos Laguna Prediction
The Leon vs Santos game will be an interesting game in all aspects. First, it is a question as to how many starters will participate on either side; although it is almost a certainty that Leon will use a higher number of reserves than Santos. Also, these two teams have improved drastically on their form as of late, where a win will push them closer to a playoff contention. In a good match, the Leon vs Santos Laguna score will end in a 2-2 tie.
