Chivas vs Pachuca: Head to Head Record
The two teams have played a total of 31 matches and the advantage so far belongs to Club Deportivo Guadalajara, with 14 wins to Pachuca's 10.
And of these 31 encounters, only on seven occasions has the match ended in a draw. And the complicated thing for Los Tuzos is that even at home they have been beaten by Guadalajara.
Of 16 visits to the Hidalgo Stadium, Chivas have won on eight occasions, compared to six wins for Pachuca and only two draws.
Chivas is also in a good moment and will surely try to take advantage of the dominance they have always had over the club now led by Guillermo Almada.
Chivas vs Pachuca: Predictions and odds
Specialized websites such as Fanduel see Chivas as the winners of the match with odds of +145, while Pachuca has +200, and if there were to be a tie it would be with a +200 payout.
So everything seems to be in place for Club Deportivo Guadalajara to leave Hidalgo with a win in their pocket.
Roberto Alvarado, who could not be present in the team's victory over Mazatlán FC, is expected to make his debut against Pachuca.
He was unable to be present since the player tested positive for COVID-19, so he had to be isolated while recovering from the virus.
Guillermo Almada's team, like Chivas, had a great start to the tournament, and the coach is focused on winning.
In a press conference a few days ago he stated:
"With Chivas, we are going to propose, our house has to be respected. Next week's match is an announced final out of the 17 we have".
If his team comes out with the same attitude with which they faced San Luis, they can likely have a great game and take the win.
