Football Betting Tips for Mexican Liga MX Season 2022/23
The Mexican Liga MX, also known as the Primera División de México, is the top-flight division in Mexico. This article explores the details of the Liga MX, including a recap of the previous season, some notable transfers, and the teams that are considered favourites to win. The info is useful for punters looking for some Mexican Liga MX betting tips.
One of the most interesting features of the Liga MX is that seasons are split in two separate tournaments: the Apertura and the Clausura. The start of the overall season will see all 18 teams compete.
The 2021/22 season will see 18 teams compete in both the Apertura, taking place during 2021, and the Clausura which will take place in 2022. The Apertura was a spectacular one, with Club America getting a hold of the top spot on matchday no. 4 and never looking back. However, they were embarrassed by 8th place UNAM in the playoffs. Their big rivals, Atlas, seized the opportunity and won vs. Leon in the finals in a short, but dramatic penalty shootout.
You can find Mexican Liga MX betting tips for the rest of the Clausura. Amazingly, Atlas are currently 4th, with Puebla and Pachuca being the most successful teams so far. This unpredictability is why we love this competition so much!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent suspension of the Clausura 2020, teams competing in the Liga MX will not face relegation. Instead, a coefficient system has been developed and the bottom 3 teams will be forced to pay a series of fines. However, this has also meant that there will be no new additions to the Liga MX for the 2021/22 season.
Who are the best bookmakers for the Mexican Liga MX?
There is no shortage of bookmakers to choose from when it comes to Mexico football betting. You will find that the best bookmakers offer great bonuses and pay out especially well for big wins.
Previous Season Recap
The 2020/21 season saw León take the Guidarianes 2020 title, their 8th title to date, and later Cruz Azul take the Guardianes 2021 title, which is their 9th title to date.
Four teams qualified for the CONCACAF Champions League qualifying rounds, including León, Cruz Azul, UNAM, and Santos Laguna.
León ended the Guardianes 2020 with a commanding lead at the top of the table, finishing 8 points clear of 2nd place UNAM as they secured 12 wins, 4 draws, and only 1 loss over the course of the season.
The top of the table during the Guardianes 2021 was a lot closer with Cruz Azul only finishing 3 points above Club América to secure the title win. The Guardianes 2021 was also all to play for in the middle of the table as Guardianes 2020 title winners León finished in 6th, just 2 points away from taking 3rd position.
Tigers UANL have brought in World Cup winner Florian Thauvin as well as Juan Vigónto replace Julián Quiñones who has joined Atlas Guadalajara, and defensive midfielder Jefferson Intriago who joined FC Juárez. Meanwhile, Cruz Azul have looked to develop their options in the midfield areas by bringing in the central midfielder Ignacio Rivero and attacking midfielder Rómulo Otero.
Elsewhere, Club León have looked to introduce some more attacking options in the squad as they have brought in the centre-forward Santiago Ormeño and winger Omar Fernández, who have both come into the team from Puebla FC. The squad’s defensive midfield options have also been impacted through the introduction of Santiago Colombatto.
Which Teams are Favourites to Win Mexican Liga MX 2022/23
Tigers UANL have made a good start to the 2021/22 season but finished fourt in the Apertura and then failed to reach the final in the play-of phase of the tournament. Although the previous season was somewhat underwhelming for the side, as they finished in 6th in the Guardianes 2020 campaign and 10th during the Guardianes 2021 tournament, they will be looking to bounce back and have a more profound impact this season. Through the introduction of a number of recent signings in the midfield areas, the squad could be looking to be more creative in the middle of the pitch to help their forward players. This could potentially give them the edge they need to succeed at the top.
Cruz Azul had a very good 2020/21 campaign as they managed to secure some silverware by taking the Guardianes 2021 title. The team also had a promising end to the Guardianes 2020 campaign as they finished in 4th, just above Monterrey and only 3 points from Club América. During the Guardianes 2021 campaign, Cruz Azul reached the top spot ahead of Club América by securing one more win and a vital 3 points. With some of their new signings this season, they could potentially recreate their successes of last season and fight for the top spots.
Club América have an excellent track record in the Liga MX as the team currently holds the most number of championships with 13 titles to their name. Last season, Club América came excruciatingly close to the top of the table during the Guardianes 2021 as they reached 2nd position. The team also came close to securing 2nd during the Guardianes 2020 campaign, yet despite finishing on the same points, UNAM managed to take 2nd on goal difference. After bringing in a number of new players through a series of free transfers, Club América will surely be looking to challenge for the top spots for the 2021/22 season.
Monterrey have been pretty consistent as they managed to secure 5th in the Guardianes 2020 and then 4th during the Guardianes 2021 just missing out on 3rd place to FC Puebla on goal difference. Monterrey focused on improving their defensive lines for this season as they have brought in a number of defensively-minded players. This includes goalkeeper Esteban Andrada signed from Boca Juniors, centre-back Sebastián Vegas, and left-back Érick Aguirre.
Which Teams Will Struggle?
Mazatlán finished 14th in the Guardianes 2020 and 13th during the Guardianes 2021. As always, it has been very close competition at the bottom of the table, and Mazatlán have so far managed to remain relatively unscathed. However, it is possible their luck could change for the 2021/22 season as, so far, Mazatlán are only 3 points above the bottom 3 in the table. Mazatlán are also on course for having the longest winless run this season as the team experienced 8 matches without a win.
Gallos Blancos de Querétaro
Querétaro have not had the best start to their 2021/22 season as they are currently mixing with the teams at the bottom of the table. During the Guardianes 2020 last season, Querétaro finished in 17thposition, only 2 points away from the very bottom. Despite their efforts to improve their form last season, the team later finished in 12th position for the Guardianes 2021 campaign and only just managed to secure a mid-table position with challengers close behind. They are potentially on the road to having yet another battle at the bottom of the table.
Club Tijuana finished at the bottom of the Arpetua 2021 table, managing just 3 wins, 6 draws, and 7 losses but then made a good start of the Clausura 2022. Last season, Tijuana finished in 15thposition for the Guardianes 2020 and then 14th for the Guardianes 2021 campaign. Their Guardianes 2020 campaign saw them finish with the second-lowest goal difference of -15.
Liga MX players to keep an eye on this season
Prediction for Top Goalscorer
The Cruz Azul forward scored goals last season as he finished top scorer for the Guardianes 2020 with an impressive 12 goals.
The Guardianes 2021 campaign also saw Rodríguez finish with 9 goals, only 2 goals behind the top spot.
With a stable team behind him, Rodríguez will surely be looking to make another impressive impact for Cruz Azul this season. Our Mexican Liga MX predictions have him finishing the season strong, so don’t be surprised if he starts scoring like crazy again.
Nicholás López arrived at Tigers UANL in 2020 and has so far bagged himself 13 goals for the club. Last season at the Guardianes 2021, López scored six times and the Tigres forward has already notched ten more this campaign. We fully expect him to add more to the tally, as most tipsters have him has the top goalscorer in their Mexican Liga MX predictions.
André-Pierre Gignac has been a dependable striker for Tigers UANL since 2015 and has so far scored 139 goals from 242 appearances for the club. The Frenchman finished the Guardianes 2020 season on 11 goals, just 1 goal behind Jonathan Rodríguez at the top of the top goalscorer’s table.
UNAM’s Argentine striker found some success during the Guardianes 2020 campaign last season as he finished 3rd in the top scorer’s table with 10 goals to his name, only 2 goals away from challenging for the top spot. If Dinenno can receive the appropriate service from the players behind him, he could be in the mix once again this campaign.
