FC Juarez vs. Puebla Betting Odds for Saturday, Mar. 23

The lone Liga MX fixture this weekend will feature two sides that are at the bottom of the barrel in the Clausura. This fixture was originally set to be played in February, but due to the tragic passing of Diego “El Puma” Chavez, who passed away on February 14, in a car accident. With the international break upon us league officials penned March 23rd as the date for the rescheduled fixture.

Understandably it’s been a tough year for FC Juarez off the pitch and even on the pitch. In last weekend's 1-0 loss to Queretaro, it looked like Los Bravos would register their first win in 2024. They controlled 69 percent of the possession and finished with 18 shots toward the target, but that still wasn’t enough to secure all three points.

Meanwhile for Puebla things are just as bad as the opponent they’re facing. Currently sitting two points above lowly Juarez, the visitors will look to snap their six-game losing streak. Making matters worse in 2024 for Puebla in five away fixtures this club has only bagged one goal, which happened in last weekend's 2-1 loss to Club Leon.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favourite picks for FC Juarez vs. Puebla.

Cruz Azul

On the pitch, it’s evident this is a struggling side who are struggling to find any momentum on attack. As they rank last in the Clausura table, the club also sits at the bottom for goals scored per match averaging 0.6. What’s keeping this team together by a thread is their defensive play. Los Bravos are averaging 1.6 goals against per match which is 10th best. Puebla will have to be sharp as Juarez is the second-best club in the competition for interceptions per match averaging 10.9.

One of the key pieces on the backend is Francesco Calvo. The 31-year-old is settling in nicely to his new surroundings not looking out of place in Liga MX. Appearing in all 810 minutes of play, Calvo is leading his side in most of the defensive categories. The fullback will be the focal point of this match with his successful stout defending that could make life difficult for Puebla bagging one past the keeper.

Puebla

On the road this season, Puebla has had to labour preventing the ball from finding the back of the net. In five away matches, this side is conceding an average of 2.8 goals per match.
