Santos Laguna is ready to participate in the prestigious Copa Libertadores 2014. The team coached by the Portuguese Pedro Caixinha has hinted that this tournament will be the focal point this semester over the Clausura 2014 of the Liga MX. In the domestic league, the Mexican side has fared poorly with only 7 points after 6 games. Nontheless, this team is one of the most dynamic and most regular in Mexico, with good talent and a great coach. Considering their characteristics, Santos will aim at going deep into the Libertadores, where they will hope to improve over their only other performance in the competition where they were eliminated in the Round-of-16.
Santos Laguna vs Arsenal Prediction
The Santos Laguna vs Arsenal de Sarandi match will be a very tight contest between two great teams. Arsenal will go into ‘La Comarca Lagunera’ with caution as they understand that their opponents have a dangerous offense lead by Oribe Peralta and Darwin Quintero. Nonetheless, the Argentine side is confident that they can earn the 3 points as they too possess a top talented team.
Santos Laguna is in a difficult group, but not difficult to the point of impossibility. The team from Torreon cannot lose at home during this stage if they want to win the group, therefore this Tuesday they will dominate the pitch and play offensively. The Santos Laguna vs Arsenal match will end in a 3-1 win for the Mexican side.
