The Pumas vs Puebla match will have Pumas host Puebla at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 7:00 pm PST.
Pumas, giving priority to the Liga MX
Antonio Torres Servin has made it clear that they will give priority to the matches in the Liga MX. Pumas will face Puebla three times in less than two weeks, given that that they will have the two Copa MX matches plus their Match in the Liga MX.
Pumas seems to be getting better, Robin Ramirez has made his goal debut against San Luis and Cortes scored a jewel. However, we still have to acknowledge that San Luis is the worst team of the Liga MX.
Against Puebla, Pumas will face an opponent that is somewhat less weak. Pumas will have to rely on the speed of Bravo and maybe trying with Robin Ramirez in the front. Cortes and Orrantia could be the possible contributors on the sides to open the spaces.
Puebla, to secure a place in the second round
Puebla has not had an easy time, with the loss against Monterrey. Lapuente has a lot to deal with. He will have to make use of people like Beasley, Borja and Lacerda to move the team forward.
Puebla has a strong team in the midfield which makes it hard for other teams to pass by. They will have to face a Pumas that moves on the sides with good dynamic. Counterattacking the speed of Cortes and Bravo will be key in Puebla’s game
Pumas vs Puebla Copa MX Prediction
The Pumas vs Puebla Copa MX match has a lot riding on it, even of the coaches don’t acknowledge it. Pumas’ Coach Torres Servin said that the Copa MX is not priority, which makes clear that the result in this game is not to relevant to him. But, it will be an interesting match since Puebla and Pumas will face each other in a week and a half for the Liga MX. I predict the Pumas vs Puebla Copa MX match will end in a 1-1 draw.
