The Santos vs Queretaro match for Week 4 of the Liga Bancomer MX will take place at the Estadio TSM in Torreon on Saturday, August 3, 2013 at 5:00 PM Pacific. Santos is still undefeated through two matches, and will face a Queretaro that is looking to avoid a second consecutive relegation.
Coach Caixinha has done a great job with Santos, he has full control of his team, and appears to be well versed in Mexican soccer. Santos started off the season with a 3-2 home win over the always difficult Cruz Azul. They followed this victory up with a 1-1 away draw at Puebla, in a match that they were minutes away from winning.
Caixinha’s team focuses on a strong defense, although it also possesses great offensive players that can score at a moments notice. Santos will be facing a Queretaro squad that appears to be an improved version of what we saw last year.
Queretaro started off the season with a 1-3 home loss against Morelia, a disappointing start to a season where they need to do well. However, Queretaro recovered and defeated Pumas 3-0 at the Estadio C.U. In the mid-week game against Monterrey, Queretaro tied 3-3 and salvaged a point against a tough opponent.
Coach Ambriz did a great job with Queretaro last season, even though they still got relegated. This season, he has a new set of players, thanks to the addition of the roster from the old Jaguares squad. I believe Ambriz has what it takes to save Queretaro from relegation, although we are still about a year away from determining which team will be relegated to the Ascenso MX.
Santos vs Queretaro Prediction
The Santos vs Queretaro match should go in favor of the home team, Santos has a better roster and a well-developed strategy. Queretaro is still trying to gel together the vast addition of new players it received. The Santos vs Queretaro match will end in a 2-1 victory for the Torreon based squad.
