The UNAM Pumas vs Xolos Tijuana Liga MX match will be held this Sunday, February 2, 2014 (10:00 AM Pacific) at Ciudad Universitaria. Pumas will host one of the most solid teams during this Clausura 2014 where a win will begin to erase any thoughts of firing coach Luis Trejo. Meanwhile, Xoloitzcuintles is 3 points away from reaching 3rd in the league; but a win will not be easy considering they have not won on the road in over a year.
Pumas, looking for a win at home
After what was a good week for Pumas, winning at the Copa MX and winning at Tigres’ home, UNAM will look to use that momentum and keep their good streak in order to get their first win at home in almost 9 months. Against Xolos, Pumas has a big challenge; they will have to show that the improvement is up and alive. Jose Luis Trejo has bought minutes to his tenure as coach, but is in no way saved from the rejection from fans. The players have to also prove that there is an improvement and that the win at Tigres last week was not coincidental.
Xolos, slow start but steady
Under new coach Cesar Farias, Xolos has had a slow but steady start, with good numbers though they have not had the scoring level they would like. The Week 5 match against Pumas will be a great opportunity for the forwards to begin scoring some goals in this Clausura 2014. With players like Hernandez, Benedetto, Gomez and Martinez up front there should be no excuse to be able to defeat a Pumas defense which is not strong and has received 6 goals in only 4 matches.
UNAM Pumas vs Xolos Tijuana Prediction
In the past games, Pumas has showed some sings of recovery; however; Xolos has a solid offense while Pumas is weak on defense, If Trejo places a defensive tactic they will have a good chance to walk with the draw. The Pumas vs Xolos match will end in a 1-1 draw.
