The Puebla vs Monterrey Liga MX match will be held this Sunday, January 12, 2014 (10:00 AM Pacific) at the Estadio Cuauhtemoc.  Puebla will make their season home opener against a difficult rival like Monterrey.  After tying in their first match, the ‘Camoteros’ and ‘Rayados’ will attempt to improve their form, and earn their first win of the young season.

Last week, Puebla had a horrendous first half in their match against UNAM Pumas.  The team coached by Ruben Omar Romano was down 2-0, and things seemed like they were going to start the season with a bad loss.  Throughout the second half, the team became more aggressive, and in the final minutes was able to tie the match 2-2.  Against Monterrey, Puebla will look to play with the same intensity as in those last minutes against Pumas, in order to win in their home opener.

The team coached by Guadalupe Cruz is in the worst situation it has been in years.  The team has not performed well for more than a season, and fans are becoming angrier after each match against the coach.  Monterrey has been inefficient on offense, and the team has played in a very boring manner, raising concerns as to where the team will end this season.  Against Puebla, Monterrey will be forced to earn the 3 points to show the fans that they are in shape to reach the playoffs this season, while a loss will show the contrary.

Puebla vs Monterrey Prediction

The Puebla vs Monterrey match will be a good match between two teams who showed in Week 1 that they have not reached their best shape.  Puebla will have the support of their fans, but the team may not have enough to defeat a tough opponent like Monterrey.  The ‘rayados’ are also in bad shape, but this match will be decided by talent more than form.  The Puebla vs Monterrey match will end in a 1-0 for the visiting side.
