Pachuca vs America

UCL Semifinals | 2nd Leg
Moneyline Odds: America +133 / Pachuca +186 / Draw ++255

Tuesday, April 30th, 2024 at 9:15 pm ET
Estadio Hidalgo, Pachuca, Mexico 

Pachuca Keys to Victory
In the first leg, Pachuca did what it had to do. Pachuca knew the second leg was going to happen on their pitch at Estadio Hidalgo. So all Pachuca had to do was play America to a draw.

Even though America held possession over 60% of the game, Pachuca held their rivals to just 4 shots on goal from 13 total shots. Back on their pitch on Tuesday, Pachuca will open their offense, which is the key to a victory in the second leg. Doing so will pressure the road team into making mistakes. That’s when Pachuca capitalizes.

America Keys to Victory
Club America was the favorite heading into the CONCACAF Champions Cup Semifinals. They are no longer the favorite because America couldn’t get the aggregate lead even though the first match happened on their pitch.

The problem is that America took some bad shots and made some mistakes. So for America to turn it around in the second leg, they must cut down on the bad shots. Sounds easy, and in reality, it should. In the head-to-head before, America had played well against Pachuca. So a return to that form will lead to a victory.

Pachuca vs America Final Analysis
Pachuca versus America is going to be an excellent soccer match. Both teams will be dialed in. The first leg could have gone either way.

Pachuca played defense because they were looking to score a draw, which they did. The home team is feeling good, but America may have turned the corner in their last. The road squad in this beat Puebla 2-1 in an impressive road win.

Club America got the win in their last while Pachuca drew against Mazatlan. Go with the more in form side to get it done.

Monterrey vs Columbus Crew

UCL Semifinals | 2nd Leg
Moneyline Odds: Columbus +350 / Monterrey -141 / Draw +295

Wednesday, May 1st, 2024 at 10:15 pm ET
Estadio BBVA, Guadalupe, Mexico  

Monterrey Keys to Victory
At the start of the CONCACAF Semifinals, Monterrey was the second choice to win the title after America. The thinking was that Monterrey would beat a floundering Columbus side.

But the Crew stepped it up. For Monterrey to turn things around, the Mexican Liga squad must put their foot on the gas pedal. In the first leg, Monterrey took just 10 total shots and just 6 on goal.

Monterrey also controlled possession 45.9% of the time. At home on their pitch, Monterrey must outshoot Columbus and control possession. Doing so will put the pressure on the Crew.

Columbus Crew Keys to Victory
Columbus played one of their best matches of the season in the first leg. Not only did the Crew outshoot Monterrey 12 to 10, but 8 of Columbus’s shots, compared to Monterrey’s 6, were on target.

The Crew also controlled possession close to 55% of the time. Heading into the second leg, Columbus has a 1 goal lead. So the Crew must play tight defense. However, they can’t get too conservative or Monterrey’s forwards, Canales and Vasquez, will make Columbus pay.

Monterrey vs Columbus Crew Final Analysis
Monterrey is a different team at home. In their last 2 at home, Monterrey drew against Tigres UANL, one of their top rivals and dusted Inter Miami 3-1.
So it goes without saying that Monterrey steps it up on Wednesday. Not only that, but Columbus has a goal to work with, meaning the Crew will play a defensive game that could lead to a regulation loss.

Columbus will be perfectly happy putting the game in the hands of goalie Patrick Schulte in a penalty shootout round. Give Monterrey the win, but the aggregate will remain up in the air until the penalties happen.

CONCACAF Champions Cup Semifinals

Club America vs Pachuca

Club America Analysis
America is playing great soccer. One of the favorites to win it all has won the last 4 matches heading into this massive throw down against rival Pachuca.

Club America has beaten Atletico de San Luis, New England Revolution twice, and Toluca in 4 of their last 5. The lone blip was a draw against Santos.

Pachuca Analysis
Pachuca has also won 4-of-5. However, Pachuca didn’t draw in their non-victory game, losing to Guadalajara in a 1-0 match.

Still, Pachuca is playing well. In the 4 wins, Pachuca outscored their opponents 12-2. 1 of the wins was a dynamite 4-0 road victory over Tigres UANL.

Club America vs Pachuca Final Betting Analysis

Club America is favored in the first leg because the match happens on America’s pitch. Pachuca, though, has been playing great defense. So it’s difficult to handicap the match.

It’s even more difficult to handicap the 2-leg aggregate. Pachuca should win the second leg. The question is whether they will score enough goals. It’s important to note that America dusted New England Revolution 4-0in New England a 5-2 in Mexico.

America beat Toluca, the second place team on the Liga Mx standings, 5-1 in their last. America is on a mission. Don’t be surprised if Club America beats Pachuca 3-0 in the first leg and then takes cruises into the finals by losing the second leg via a goal.

Monterrey vs Columbus Crew

Monterrey Analysis
Monterrey doesn’t head into the first leg playing their best soccer. The co-favorite to win the Champions Cup shows 2 wins, a draw, and 2 losses in their last 5.

Monterrey beat Inter Miami twice, 2-1 in the match in Miami, and 3-1 on Monterrey’s grass. The 3-3 draw versus Tigres UANL wasn’t a bad game. But losing to Leon by 2 goals in the last wasn’t good because Leon has just 23 points this season.

Columbus Crew Analysis
Columbus knocked out Tigres UANL in a penalty shootout. The two squads had played to 1-1 draws in both quarterfinals matches.

The penalty shootout victory against Tigres is the lone win in Columbus’ last 5. The Crew shows 3 more draws versus D.C. United, Real Salt Lake, and Portland Timbers.  

Monterrey vs Columbus Crew Final Betting Analysis

Monterrey didn’t look good versus Leon. Still, the Liga MX squad is the one to back. Columbus isn’t playing great soccer, preferring to play defense and settle with draws instead of pushing the attack.

Monterrey, even though they’re the road team, will push the attack as hard as they can. That should lead to at least a 1-goal victory versus Columbus. But even if the Crew pull of the win, the semifinals switches pitches to Monterrey’s in the second leg. Monterrey sends the Crew home to Ohio.

2024 CONCACAF Cup Picks

Winner: Club America +175

Beating Pachuca won’t be easy, but Club America is in excellent form. The favorite to win the CONCACAF Champions Cup outscored New England and Toluca by a combined 10 goals to 3.

America dusted Pachuca 4-0 in the last head-to-head that happened on Club America’s pitch. Although Pachuca gets to face America on their pitch in leg 2, it won’t matter because America will have built a sizable aggregate lead. Then in the finals, America should get by Monterrey to lift the CONCACAF Champions Cup.  

Second: Monterrey +175

This is more of a Columbus won’t be Monterrey pick than honestly believing Monterrey is the second best team left in the CONCACAF Champions Cup. Monterrey got lucky to draw Columbus, a team that doesn’t have much shot of getting by the Mexican Liga rival.

Monterrey is a quality club. But after dispatching of Columbus, the +175 co-favorite will fall to America.

Third: Pachuca +350

Pachuca deserves to be in the final. But, unfortunately for them, they face Club America. If there is a team in the final four that can beat Club America, it’s Pachuca.

So if you believe, go for it because the +350 the odds definitely make Pachuca playable.

Fourth: Columbus Crew +500

Columbus should have lost to Tigres UANL. The Crew is a co-second on the MLS Standings. But facing MLS teams is different than throwing down against a top Liga MX squad like Monterrey.

Columbus won’t get by Monterrey, and if the Crew pulls off a shocker and knocks out the co-chalk, Columbus must take on either Pachuca or Club America. Both teams should easily handle the lone MLS team in the CONCACAF Champions Cup final four.
