Toluca will host Pumas for their third match of the Liga MX at the Estadio Nemesio Diez on Wednesday, July 31st at 6:00 PM PST.
Toluca, with a great comeback and ready for more
Last week we saw an amazing match starring Toluca, where the Diablos were in trouble, but came back to get the 3 points vs Morelia in a match where 7 goals were scored. Toluca appeared good on offense, nonetheless, receiving 3 goals is not quite what a team is looking for.
Jose Saturnino Cardozo has a great task at hand, lead a team with great history and live up to the expectations of the fans who saw him become the greatest ever Toluca player. Toluca now has the chance to show an offensive game against Pumas, and being that they will be at home, they have everything on their side.
Pumas, searching for anything to stay afloat
Last Sunday was just something to forget about. Pumas played horribly against Gallos Blancos. Pumas were left with nothing to rescue about the match, no order in the lines, poor collective game, and a couple of players trying to show individuality.
After a frustrating loss, it is clear that as long as coach Torres Servin stays in charge there is nothing to expect from the team. Nahuelpan was sent off due to a dangerous foul and will not see action against Toluca, Javier Cortes is far off from what he has shown in past years and Dario Veron is trying to keep a team that has no spirit.
Toluca vs Pumas Prediction
Toluca is motivated and playing at home, it will have an easier time at this match. Pumas, with pressure and lack of confidence, will have trouble getting past the midfield. An offensive game from Toluca, and defensive from a Pumas hoping to counterattack. The prediction for this game is a win for Toluca, 2-0
