Atletico de San Luis vs Mazatlan FC Prediction

Atletico de San Luis vs Mazatlan FC Predictions

In the last five games, Atletico de San Luis have picked up only four out of 15 points. Their last win came two games ago, against Queretaro FC. At the start of these five games, the side also held Santos Laguna to a 1-1 draw. In the last match, Atletico de San Luis lost by a solitary goal against Cruz Azul.

Mazatlan FC are enduring another dreadful season and have lost four out of their last five games. The Clausura season’s only win for them came against Cruz Azul four games ago. After that, the club lost three consecutive games. In the last match, Club Leon beat them after scoring a winning goal ten minutes from time.

Despite being in poor form, the hunger to reach the playoffs could drive Atletico de San Luis forward and see them clinch all three points in this fixture.

Previous Meetings

There is not a lot of history between the two sides as they have only met five times in Liga MX, with their first meeting coming in the 2020 Apertura season. Mazatlan FC registered their only win over Atletico de San Luis in that game with a 5-0 thrashing.

In the last five encounters between the two sides, Atletico de San Luis have won twice, and two games have ended in a draw. The head-to-head record is even at the venue, as both sides have one win each, with Atletico de San Luis winning the latest clash 1-0 at home.

Atletico de San Luis are unbeaten against Mazatlan FC in the last four matches and have a high chance of extending that streak to five when the two sides meet this weekend. The previous clash between the two sides ended in a 1-1 with Gonzalo Sosa and Abel Hernandez on the scoresheet.

Primary Objective Is Playoff Qualification for Atletico de San Luis

The playoff qualification race is set to go down to the wire this Clausura season, as only four points separate eighth-placed Cruz Azul and 15th-placed Atletico de San Luis. Each of these eight teams will be hungry to nab a playoff spot for themselves.

However, only five will complete the objective, and the other three clubs will finish on the wrong side of the qualification zone. Atletico de San Luis have already done the latter in the 2022 Apertura season and will do everything possible to dodge that situation this season.

The club, along with Club Tijuana and Club Necaxa, is already level on points with Atlas FC, who are currently occupying 12th place, which is the final playoff spot. Atletico de San Luis are at the bottom of this pile due to an inferior goal difference.

Atletico de San Luis Need to Improve Their Goalscoring Record  

Despite being at the bottom of the table, Mazatlan FC have scored more goals than Atletico de San Luis. That is one concerning statistic for the hosts, which they will be eager to change, and they could do it against Mazatlan FC, who have not kept a clean sheet in the last 16 matches.

The performance of Atletico de San Luis in the final third has been subpar this Clausura season as they are ranked only above Queretaro FC regarding the number of goals they have scored. The hosts have scored ten goals in 12 games, while Queretaro FC have scored nine in 11.

Top Scorer Could End Five-Game Goal Drought 

Three out of Atletico de San Luis’ ten goals this season have come via Leo, who joined the club at the start of this Clausura season, replacing their 2022 Apertura top scorer Abel Hernandez, who joined Penarol.

Atletico de San Luis were heavily reliant on Hernandez throughout the Apertura season, as he scored eight of their 15 goals that season. This season, the club is relying on Leo, who started the season with two goals in three games but has not scored in the last five.

The Turmoil Continues for Mazatlan FC  

Mazatlan FC were established a little over two years ago and are only playing in their third Liga MX season. They secured their highest finish when they nabbed the 12th spot in the 2022 Clausura season, securing their first and only playoff qualification.

Apart from that, the side has come extremely close to qualification but have been let down by their poor goal difference on a couple of occasions and have fallen short of a few points in the other seasons. This Clausura season could give them their worst finish since they were founded.

The club has never finished below 14th place in the last two years. That statistic could change this season, as they are rooted to the bottom of the table and are five points behind Queretaro FC, who are right above them in the table, with only five games to go.

Key Mazatlan FC Players on the Sidelines 

After picking up a knock in the game against Deportivo Toluca more than two weeks ago, Jefferson Intriago has not featured in the last two games and could miss the game against Atletico de San Luis. The midfielder started every game this season before the injury.

Mazatlan FC’s first-choice left-back has also missed the last three games for the club after he picked up an injury during his Mazatlan FC’s only win this season against Cruz Azul. The 23-year-old is eager to return to the pitch and hand his side a much-needed defensive boost.

Talisman Back From Suspension and Gunning to Go

New signing Nicolas Benedetti has scored four and assisted three goals in eight appearances this season. Shortly after scoring his fourth goal of the campaign against Deportivo Toluca, the Colombian was shown a straight red as his side eventually lost that game 4-1.

In the last four games that the 25-year-old has featured in for Mazatlan FC, he has scored three and assisted two goals. He has either scored or assisted in each of the last four matches that he has played in. The winger has served his suspension and will be eager to return to the pitch.
