Pumas will host Veracruz for their week 15 match of the Liga MX at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario on Sunday, October 27, 2013 at 11:00 AM PST.

Pumas, looking for a few last points

In what has been one of the worst seasons for Pumas, this Sunday they will seek to obtain points in order to avoid the relegation table. Pumas comes from a tie versus Jaguares in a game that seemed lost. With a late goal, Pumas rescued a point from their away match and now they will try to do their best to win at home against Veracruz.

Mario Trejo has said that now is the time to think about cleaning house, and after the results of this season, he has been all over south America looking for possible candidates that will be part of the 2014 Clausura roster.

Veracruz, lost the momentum, now seeking points

Veracruz started the season strong and little by little got deflated, in their efforts to stay afloat they took some hits but managed to continue in the race. With 3 weeks left and in tenth place, Veracruz still has chances to make the playoffs and sum up points towards avoiding relegation.

With players like Reyna and Tejada in the front, they will seek to score against a Pumas that has not had a good defensive streak this season.

Prediction: it will be a close game, players from Pumas are trying to show a decent performance in order to stay in the team and Veracruz is seeking points to avoid relegation. The result will be a tie 1-1.

Television: The match will be televised on Univision.
