Written by: Angelo Zarra

Saturday evening will see two clubs scrambling to lock down a playoff spot as Chivas Guadalajara hosts Queretaro at Estadio Akron. Their most recent encounter was in the Apertura season which saw Chivas walk away with all three points on the road winning 2-1. Overall, in their last 30 clashes, it’s been a fairly even matchup with Chivas being victorious eight times while Queretaro has won on seven occasions, and both sides have split the points in 15 affairs.

Chivas Guadalajara is surging at the right time in the final stretch of the Clausura. Chivas has reeled off three straight victories and are unbeaten in their last four. For Chivas Rayadas they’re getting it done on the defensive side of the pitch, earning a clean sheet in three of their last four Liga MX contests.

Meanwhile, Queretaro, suffered a gut-wrenching defeat to Mazatlan last weekend that saw their four-game winning streak come to a close. Losing to the lowly side, their gap between the closest club chasing them down for a playoff spot stands at three points currently. Last weekend's result was only the third time in 2024 that Los Gallos Blancos were kept off the score sheet.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favourite picks for Chivas Guadalajara vs. Queretaro.

Chivas Guadalajara vs. Queretaro Betting Predictions at bet365

Chivas Guadalajara Preview

Jockeying to lock down a playoff spot, with five a point advantage a win on Saturday would seal Chivas clinching a postseason berth in the competition. With 21 recorded goals in the Clausura, the club has registered them in a variety of ways as only 10 goals have been bagged from open play.

Leading the way in the goal-scoring department for Chivas is central midfielder Victor Guzman. The 29-year-old has found the back of the net in six instances. Guzman will seek playing time as he was benched in lastweekend's contest. In 892 minutes played in the Clausura, the six-time internationally capped Mexican player has registered a total of 21 shots with nine hitting the target.

Queretaro Preview

Similar to Chivas, Queretaro is trying to nail down a playoff spot and victory would go a long way for their playoff aspirations. In the Clausura competition, Los Gallos Blancos are exceeding expeditions in the analytical department, registering 21 goals scored but as a team have an xG of 14.2.

Helping transcend burying the ball in the back of the net is the veteran attacking midfielder Pablo Barrera. The Mexican international leads his side with five goals and has tallied five assists to his name. Barrera will look to rebound after a dismal performance last weekend which saw an error he made, lead to a goal for Mazatlan.

Chivas Guadalajara vs. Queretaro - My Pick

The home side in this encounter are favoured for a reason. Chivas have only suffered one defeat through seven home games in 2024. On defence, they are only allowing 1.29 goals against per match at Estadio Akron. When Chivas are a streaky side, currently they’re in good form and it’s harsh to go against them.

On the other hand, Queretaro is performing well on the road this year, collecting 14 points in seven away fixtures. That said we should see Chivas outclass Queretaro in this fixture. The club from Guadalajara has more than it takes to walk away with a result in this situation with the class and experience their roster boasts.
