Mazatlán FC is going head to head with Club Necaxa starting on 18 Mar 2023 at 03:05 UTC at Estadio de Mazatlan stadium, Mazatlan city, Mexico. The match is a part of the Liga MX, Clausura. Currently, Mazatlán FC rank 18th, while Club Necaxa hold 15th position. With Nicolas Benedetti out with a red card suspension, our Mazatlan vs Necaxa predictions are going to be a slam dunk for sure.
He’s one of coach Ruben Romano’s top assets and his absence on Saturday will make the game almost unwinnable. He scored the only goal for Mazatlan against Santos Laguna in the previous Liga MX fixture but it wasn’t enough as Carlos Gonzalez, Edgar Ivan Lopez, Maximiliano Araujo, and Camilo Sanvezzo were quick to respond with goals as well as the end result was 4-1 in favor of Santos Laguna.
Necaxa aren’t exactly thriving these days either. With one victory, two draws, and two losses in the last five Clausura fixtures, coach Andres Lillini’s boys are borderline mediocre this season. Their last game, the 1-1 tie against Juarez, was a particularly disappointing result as despite having 19 shots at target, Necaxa still couldn’t win the match.
The game at Estadio Victoria Aguascalientes on the 24th of September was a joy to behold and while both teams definitely had good goalscoring opportunities, perhaps a 2-2 draw was the fairest result.
The other draw we got to see between Mazatlan and Necaxa was a goalless one on the 2nd of March, 2022. That makes it two back-to-back draws between the two teams and seeing as there’s not much that separates the two teams in the Liga MX ranking at the moment, we believe that a draw is your best chance to win here.
Prediction:- Mazatlán 1-1 Necaxa

In order for both of our Mazatlan vs Necaxa predictions to be successful, the match must end either in a 2-2 draw or a more impressive draw result. Luckily, one of the two draws between the two teams did end with a 2-2 score. It was the last game between the two teams on the 24th of September, 2022.
Three of the five games between the two teams ended with over 2.5 goals and while we did see one goalless tie, it’s highly unlikely for the match on the 18th of March to be a lackluster event considering how incapable of defending these two teams are this season.
