The Pumas vs Puebla Copa MX 2013 match will have Puebla host Pumas at the Estadio Cuauhtémoc on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at 7:00 PM PST.
Puebla, continuing their way up
Puebla has not only showed that it’s recovering from the bad past seasons, but it’s also showing that they might be in the race for something more. This past weekend against Leon, with a 1-0 win in the Liga MX, Puebla placed themselves in the playoff positions.
Under the command of Manolo Lapuente, Puebla is showing an attractive game and with players like Alustiza, Beasly and Borja that are giving good game in the front. However, Puebla shows at times instability in the Liga MX. This is not the case in the Copa MX, where they are already installed in the second round, but still have one match remaining versus Pumas.
Pumas, shaking off a bitter draw
Pumas comes from a draw versus Chivas in the Liga MX, yes, perhaps the linesman that declared that offside affected the outcome of the match, but regardless, the team should have looked for the win, and their second half did not go as good as the first one.
Pumas will face this match with the priority of studying and analyzing Puebla, given the fact that they will meet again on Sunday. For Pumas, it’s clear that the Copa MX is not a priority, and this gives Torres Servin a piece of mind in maybe using a different line up to test Puebla.
Pumas vs Puebla Copa MX Prediction
The Pumas vs Puebla match will be similar to the previous Copa MX match: Puebla and Pumas will be modest and conservative to what they do in the field this Wednesday, their priority will sit on Sunday’s match. I predict the Pumas vs Puebla Copa MX match will end in a draw.
