The Pumas vs Santos Liga MX Week 13 match will have Pumas host Santos on Sunday, October 6th at Estadio Olimpico Universitario at 10:00 AM PST.

Pumas, looking for their first win at home

Pumas is coming off from losing in the Copa MX at the quarterfinal stage. Atlas took them on and eliminated them from the competition. Mario Trejo, the vicepresident of the team, declared that this team has no spirit, enthusiasm or soul. Pumas is looking to end the season and to start planning for the next year, but before anything happens, they still have five matches left to play. If they do not want to be compromised in the relegation table, they will have to try to get some decent results for the remainder of the season.

Jose Luis Trejo is still unable to find the balance on what the team needs, plus, it is obvious that some of the players have no love for the jersey, and it is time for some of them to leave the institution. Pumas is at a point where there is no turning back, either start over, or continue the decline.

Santos, trying to break a streak

Santos is standing as one of the favorite teams to obtain the title this season. With only one match lost and in fourth place, Santos will try to break a bad streak of results at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario, where they have not been able to win since 2002.

With players like Oribe Peralta, Felipe Baloy, Darwin Quintero and Oswaldo Sanchez, Santos has in each one of their lines an element that might create the difference. Under the command of polemical Pedro Caixinha, Santos has a better chance of getting the 3 points

Prediction: This is perhaps a no brainer. It is clear that Pumas just needs the season to end to start from scratch. Santos is in a better moment, and has the opportunity to sum up and reach a better standing for the playoffs. My prediction is a Santos win 2-0

Television: The Pumas vs Santos match will be televised on Univision.
