The Morelia vs Tecos 2013 Copa MX match will be played at the Estadio 3 de Marzo on Thursday, February 14 at 10:00 PM Eastern. Both teams are 5 points behind Group 2 leader Queretaro, and must win in order to remain close to the top.
Morelia has had a decent start to the Liga MX: 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. However, in the Copa MX, Morelia only tied 1 game and lost the other, leaving them 5 points behind Group leader Queretaro. A win against Tecos is an absolute necessity, otherwise Morelia can say goodbye to the Copa MX.
Last weekend against Leon, Morelia defeated one of the weakest teams in the Liga MX by a score of 1-0. Morelia overall looked bad, and was only able to win due to Leon’s terrible run. Morelia’s alternate squad (which is likely to start against Tecos), must step up for the important Copa MX away game.
Tecos also has just 1 point, and they know that a loss or draw against Morelia could very well mean the end of their chances in the Copa MX. In the Ascenso MX, Tecos is doing exactly the same as Morelia, with 2 wins, draws, and losses, for a total of 8 points. Can Tecos take advantage of the home field (notice I say field, as I doubt they’ll be more than 500 people in the stands) to take the win?
Morelia vs Tecos Prediction
Morelia needs to win if it wants a chance at the Copa MX playoffs, Tecos is in the exact same situation. Both teams will use an alternate squad, saving their starters for their league games. Given the alternate squads’ bad records in the Copa MX, I can expect a tight game. The Morelia vs Tecos Copa MX match will end in a 1-1 draw that hurts both teams’ chances.
