Tigres will host Pumas for a Week 14 Tigres vs Pumas match of the Liga MX on Saturday October 20, 2012 at 5:00pm PST at the Estadio Universitario in Nuevo Leon.
Pumas, in the search of playoffs
Despite the fact that Carrillo is still considered “persona non grata” by the fans of Pumas, he has been able to deliver results. Also, it is essential to note the fact that Carrillo is not making use of any of the reinforcements, which has Villa, Romagnolli, Lozano and Garcia on the bench and sometimes not even there.
Herrera is going to be a big factor in the game, his participation in previous games has been very good, even when he does not score. The return of Cabrera in the midfield is not only good for Pumas, but also good for El Tri, which see in him a natural replacement for the aging Torrado, just a matter of waiting for him to recover the level he had.
Pumas has no injured or sanctioned players and should have a full squad ready to visit Tigres on Saturday and see long time friend Tuca Ferretti.
Tigres, when the magic is fading
Tigres is in a place where perhaps the engine is wearing off. With only 3 wins, 5 ties and 5 games lost, numbers are not in their favor. Tuca Ferretti does not seem under pressure, and it appears only like a rough patch.
At the moment, there is no certainty that Lucas Lobos, Tigres’ best player, will play. Damian Alvarez will not play due to a suspension. This seems to drain Tigres’ offensive and perhaps we will see Alan Pulido up front trying to score.
Prediction: Tigres vs Pumas will play touching the ball on the ground and go for diagonal passing. This will make the game stuck in the middle. We hope that Carrillo’s style bets for an explosive game on the side. Ferretti will stick to his normal touch-touch game. In the end, this will be a game that will be one by the one that can get the game un-stuck. The Tigres vs Pumas match is likely to end in a 1-1 draw.
Television: The Tigres vs Pumas match will be televised on Saturday October 20, 2012 at 5:00pm PST on Telefutura.
