Monterrey vs Necaxa: Head to Head Record

Both teams are desperate for a win in Liga MX 2022, but neither has been able to make their quality count in Round 1 of the tournament. 

The two teams have met on 29 occasions and the scales have always been tipped in Monterrey's favor, with Rayados winning 13 of those encounters, while Los Rayos have only been able to win on eight occasions. 

Both teams have finished tied on seven occasions and playing at home, Necaxa has only been able to win on 5 occasions, compared to 7 wins for Monterrey as a visitor. 

In fact, all 13 of Monterrey's wins have come in Liga MX matches, making them the overwhelming favorite for this duel. 

Monterrey vs Necaxa: Predictions and odds

Monterrey has a 40 percent chance of leaving the Victoria-Aguascalientes Stadium with a win

Therefore, betting sites register a 2.5 in favor of the Rayados.

Meanwhile, Necaxa's chances of winning are only 31 percent and even the bookmakers give a 2.5 odds on the Rayos winning the match. 

And the possibility of a draw is 27 percent, so when looking at the numbers, it is easier for the match to end in a win for Monterrey than in favor of Necaxa or in a draw.

On the other hand, Javier Aguirre explained in a press conference that this time the team will not be able to count on Rodolfo Pizarro, its most recent acquisition, due to the COVID-19

During the press conference, the coach was reluctant to mention the subject, but the reporters did not give him the opportunity to avoid it. 

The coach stated: "What we have is what we have, we are waiting for Pizarro, Romo has already joined the team and we hope that these two will contribute their share of goals, they know how to get into the box, they have a goal and we are excited about these two players".

Necaxa news

Due to the increasing cases of COVID-19 infection in Mexico, the authorities of the state of Aguascalientes, where Necaxa plays, have decided to cancel massive events

Therefore, there is a strong possibility that the game will be played behind closed doors, as happened throughout 2020 in this stadium, until October of the same year. 

Therefore, the local public could be left without seeing Nico Castillo or Alejandro Zendejas play
