Our FC Juárez v Necaxa tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - plus the latest match odds.
FC Juárez will be looking for an improved result here following a 3-0 Liga MX (Apertura) defeat in their last game at the hands of Tigres de la UANL.
In that game, FC Juárez had 40% possession and 6 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Tigres de la UANL got 14 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. Nicolás López (6', 83') and Juan Pablo Vigón (47') scored for Tigres de la UANL.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games that FC Juárez have shown defensive steel. In fact, FC Juárez have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 8 goals along the way. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, though.
After being beaten in their last game against León in Liga MX (Apertura) competition, Necaxa will be hoping to turn things around here.

Necaxa have it within them to score against this FC Juárez side, however that may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
