Pumas will host Delfines del Carmen for their Week 2 Copa MX match at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario on Tuesday, January 21st at 7:00 PM Pacific.
Pumas, hitting rock bottom
In a disappointing Sunday for Pumas fans, Toluca took the win from C.U and put Pumas on the spot, making evident their ineffective game. Jose Luis Trejo has won the hate of fans and the team is hitting rock bottom. Mario Trejo stated that if they do not get a good result on Tuesday, he will be leaving the team as vice-president.
Coming from a loss, Pumas have set their mind in getting back at Delfines in order to win some motivation, but the task is not easy, fans are not happy, the team does not seem to be committed and players are not giving their 100%.
Delfines del Carmen, looking for another win
Delfines del Carmen comes from a draw at Cruz Azul Hidalgo and they will use the momentum of previous results in order to beat Pumas again and take the lead in their Copa MX group.
Delfines will likely use the same scheme that placed Pumas in a bad position last Thursday. They will try to take advantage of the crisis that is taking over their rival and use the pressure to get the away win.
Pumas vs Delfines Prediction
Due to the negative vibe currently surrounding Pumas, this game will end up in a draw. Pumas have been awful lately, and have shown no signs of improvement, furthermore, Delfines will likely come in and bunker up. This means that it will be a close match with few scoring opportunities, ending in a 0-0 draw.
