Pumas hasn’t lost since Week 3 of the Liga MX, and has had a decent season so far: 3 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses for a total of 13 points. Pumas’s defense has been solid, allowing just 7 goals all season long, although its offense is disappointing: just 9 scored so far. This has led to more draws than Torres Servin would like, but at leas it’s a huge improvement over the previous season.
Puebla is in a very similar situation, coming off a bad season and having a new coach lift up the team. Puebla currently has 14 points, thanks to its 4 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. Puebla is a solid team that has done well with its modest squad, thanks in large part to the leadership provided by La Puente.
Both teams are unlikely to risk too much going on the attack, preferring to earn 1 point in a draw, than the risk it all for a shot at victory and the 3 points.
