Jaguares will host Pumas at the Estadio Victor Manuel Reyna on Saturday, October 19th, 2013 at 7:00 PM Pacific, as part of Week 14 of the Liga MX.
Jaguares, looking to secure a spot in the playoffs
Sergio Bueno finally seems to be having a good streak in his career, after landing in a renewed Jaguares. This team, although it does not seem powerful, is placed as 7th in the general standings and they have a good chance at getting a spot in the post-season liguilla.
Jaguares will face Pumas, and the team from Chiapas knows that it won’t be easy, given that Pumas will go after the ball since the beginning of the match. However, Jaguares is a team that has a way of playing that is more grounded and might be the one getting the result in their favor at home
Pumas, looking for a light at the end of the tunnel
Pumas comes from being beat by Santos at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario. With spirits low, a friendly that was little attractive and a collective game that shows no unity, Pumas needs the season to end and look forward in their planning to reboot a team that should be seeking for more than what they got this season.
Against Jaguares the players of Pumas have one more opportunity to convince the coach and administrative office that they deserve to stay, otherwise, it will seem like the house will be getting cleaned over the winter.
Prediction: Pumas has nothing to lose and will risk everything to get a win, but that also will make them prone to errors and mistakes. Jaguares will play with the desperation of UNAM. Jaguares will get in the end the 3 points with a 1-0 score in their favor.
Television: The Jaguares vs Pumas match will be televised on Univision Deportes.
