Pumas vs. Leon Week 6 Liga MX Preview
Mauricio Robles | On 17, Aug 2013
The Pumas vs Leon match will have Pumas host Leon at Estadio Olimpico Universitario on Sunday, August 18th, 2013 at 10:00AM PST for week 6 at Liga Bancomer MX.
Pumas, looking for a win
Pumas has gone from bad to worse. Just a day after losing a match versus Tijuana, Alberto Garcia Aspe quit the vice-presidency of the team and the administration brought back Mario Trejo. Trejo is a character that is not well seen by fans dues to his policies, which led to the bad results in the Memo Vazquez Jr. era.
Antonio Torres Servin was still confirmed as the coach of the team, however; he knows that if he does not make the team get a good result, his position will be on the edge, and he might very well no longer be the coach by this time next week.
Leon, still undefeated
Leon is on the other side of the coin, with 2 wins and 3 draws, Leon has not yet known defeat this season. The administration trusted Gustavo Matosas after last season’s series of bad results, however, with a few changes on their roster, they seem to be getting in shape to perhaps be one of the main teams in search of post-season.
Leon is averaging a goal per match, and their defense has received 3 goals this season. Gustavo Matosas will trust in the combination of Carlos Peña and Franco Arizala to defeat and surpass the defense of Pumas.
Pumas vs Leon Prediction
This will be a game fought and won in the middle of the field. Pumas will seek for their first win, while Leon will try to stay undefeated. On the side of Pumas, Candido Ramirez will not see action and Romagnoli is still not confirmed to be playing. Leon has a complete squad. My prediction in the score for this game is Leon 1 – Pumas 0
Pumas vs Leon T V Schedule
The Pumas vs Leon match will be televised this Sunday, August 18, 2013 at 10 AM Pacific on Univision.
