The Pumas vs Queretaro match will have Pumas host Club Queretaro for their Week 2 match of the Apertura 2013 of the Liga MX at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario on Sunday, July 28th at 10:00 AM PST.
Pumas, going for their first win
Pumas started off the season with a tie against Puebla, and opened up the Copa MX with a tie against Leones Negros. For Pumas, this is the moment to start getting the necessary results and earning points for this season. Ariel Nahuelpan, who traveled to Ecuador during the week, is back in training and most likely will be in the starting lineup this Sunday.
We might also see the incorporation of Efrain Velarde and Javier Cortes, who were called up for El Tri to face the Copa Oro, but as the Mexican squad was eliminated in the semifinals, these two elements might see action on Sunday.
Queretaro, relegated, but not gone
Due to loopholes in the Liga MX statutes and rules, Jaguares from Chiapas moved their franchise to Queretaro, acquiring the name and logo and placing Ignacio Ambriz as their coach. Now, the “new” franchise settled in Queretaro will try to do more than what they were able to in Chiapas.
Queretaro started off the Liga MX with a loss against Morelia and the Copa MX with a win against Atletico San Luis. Queretaro will be seeking for the 3 points at the Estadio Olimpico this Sunday.
Pumas vs Queretaro Prediction
The Pumas vs Queretaro match can almost be considered a must-win match for UNAM. Pumas is long due for a win at home, and this Sunday will be a good match to get the 3 points and demonstrate an improved game. Queretaro has nothing to lose and a win or even a tie is a good result for them. The game will be stuck in the midfield, but if Pumas tries to attack through the flanks with Candido Ramirez and Javier Cortes, their chances are greater to obtain the win.
I predict the Pumas vs Queretaro match will end in a 2-1 win for the home team, giving Pumas their first win of the Apertura 2013.
