The Monterrey vs Puebla Liga MX match will be held this Saturday, July 27, 2013 (5:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Tecnologico. Monterrey will have their first match at home this Saturday night when they host Puebla. ‘Rayados’ lost in their opening match against Cruz Azul last week 1-0, while Puebla had a decent start after their 1-1 tie against Pumas UNAM.
Monterrey is one of the favorites to go deep into the Apertura 2013 of the Liga MX. They are considered as having one of the most talented squads in the league after signing players like Dorlan Pabon and Lucas Silva. Talent is significant to success, however, the team coached by Victor Manuel Vucetich will need some time to adjust to the new transfers which will force a change in tactics.
The game against Puebla will be a good opportunity for Monterrey to obtain their first win in the season. Not only do they play in front of their outstanding fans, but they also face one of the weakest teams in the Liga MX. Puebla is guided well by veteran coach Manuel De La Puente, but Monterrey’s talent and recent history of success have they as the clear favorites to win Saturday’s match at the Tecnologico.
‘La Franja’ will have to battle history in their visit to the northern state of Nuevo Leon; they have not defeated Monterrey in twenty years. Not only that, but they also face a team that is almost obliged to win, considering Monterrey did not win in their first week. Puebla did not win either, and points are necessary early into the tournament because they are in 15th place of the relegation table.
Monterrey vs Puebla Prediction
The Monterrey vs Puebla Liga MX match will be a one-sided match dominated by the home team. Monterrey lost by one goal last week, therefore they are pressured to win at home against a team they have not lost to in 20 years. Puebla is well-coached, but they lack the talent to do great things in this league. The Monterrey vs Puebla match will end in a 2-0 win for the rayados.
