The Pumas vs San Luis Copa MX match will have Atletico San Luis host Pumas at the Estadio Alfonso Lastras on Wednesday, August 21st at 7:00 PM PST.

Atletico San Luis, ready to begin a new journey

After San Luis vanished from the Liga MX after being sold to Chiapas, the former Tiburones Rojos from Veracruz moved to San Luis Potosi and created the new Atletico San Luis, a team that disputes the Ascenso MX and that will seek to write a new story.

This team has not had luck in the Copa MX, since their first two matches against Queretaro were losses. But their standing in Ascenso MX is not that bad, after coming from a draw versus Necaxa, Atletico San Luis is ready to take on Pumas.

Pumas, seeking motivation

Yet another match that could be forgotten as well… Pumas obtained a draw against Leon in a match that was unwatchable and that left not much to rescue from the performance of Pumas. Mario Trejo, the new (returning Vice president) has made clear that the situation of some players needs to be analyzed in order to evaluate their continuity.

Pumas has no other option than to win this match and feel motivated so that their situation may get better. It is obvious that key players’ performances have decayed immensely and this is an issue that needs to be address before it’s too late.

Pumas vs San Luis Prediction

This game seems to be an opportunity for both teams to analyze their game schemes and try new things. It will be perhaps a game of passing and slow on the offensive ends. Pumas will seek conjunctive and collective game on their side. Atletico San Luis will seek ball possession and counterattack. I expect the Pumas vs San Luis match will end in a 1-1 draw.
