The Pumas vs Pachuca match will have the Tuzos play host to Pumas on Saturday, April 6 at 6:00 PM PST at Estadio Hidalgo for this Week 13 Clausura 2013 encounter.

Pumas, in need of points

Pumas had a bad game against Monterrey, after a good first half, the team lost the game in a second half where Pumas was just confused. Torres Servin has not found the combination needed to give the team the push to score goals and defend against attacks.

For this match against Pachuca, they will be facing a team that is the home team so far, a team that will not give anything for free, and Pumas will be playing under the pressure of obtaining the three points in order to secure a spot in the post season.

Players in the Pumas offense like Bravo, Herrera, Ramirez and Garcia will have to step up and show why they are the on the team. Otherwise, this will seem like another failed season.

Pachuca, the best home record will be tested

Pachuca is the best local team at the moment in the Liga MX, and against Pumas their position will be tested. Pachuca will not count with Hector Herrera playing in the midfield, which is a considerable loss for the team. Still, they will count on players like Angel Reyna, Paulo Da Silva and Daniel Ludueña to give the team the balance and acquire the three points at home.

Pachuca is a team that looks better than the team that last season was under Hugo Sanchez, and that seemed confused and lost, now they seem on track under the wing of Gabriel Caballero.

Pumas vs Pachuca 2013 Prediction

Pumas will play for all the marbles, and bet all that they have in order to get the three points. However, in front they have a strong team that quietly has been gaining positions up in the table. A very tough game in the middle of the field should be expected. I predict the Pumas vs Pachuca match will end in a 1-1 draw that maintains Pumas’s hope for the playoffs alive.
