Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for León v Puebla are shown on this page - along with the latest match odds.
León will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 2-1 Primera (Apertura) Liguilla defeat in their last game at the hands of Puebla.
In that match, León had 60% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 1 on target. The scorer for León was Jaine Barreiro (28'). Puebla got 12 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Pablo Parra (29') and Maximiliano Araújo (78') scored for Puebla.
A recurring theme in more recent León games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
Taking their prior sextet of matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a wager on "Both Teams to Score" would've lost. Nevertheless, time will tell whether such a trend might be maintained in this next game.
In 5 of the prior 6 games featuring Puebla, a comparatively low number of goals have been scored between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game within that period comes out as a paltry 2, with the average goals for Los Camoteros standing at 1.33.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head duels dating back to 28/09/2019, there has been little to separate the clubs with León winning 3 of those games, Puebla 3 and 0 being draws in regulation time.
A sum of 15 goals were produced between them in this period, with 8 from Los Esmeraldas and 7 netted by Los Camoteros. That’s an average goals per game of 2.5.

In our view, León are likely to be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
At the same time, Puebla may well find it hard to break down their defence but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be hitting back at some stage here, too.
Accordingly, we see a 3-1 win for León at the end of this one.
