The Pumas UNAM vs Pachuca Liga MX match will be played this Sunday, March 2, 2014 (10:00 AM Pacific) at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario. Pumas and Tuzos will face-off in what is expected to be one of the best matches during Week 9 of the Clausura 2014.
Pumas: Great Momentum
Last week, it was unexpected for Pumas to beat Club America at the Estadio Azteca, but it happened. With two goals from Daniel Ludueña and one from the young Ramirez, Pumas ended with a bad streak of bad results.
During the week they played against Atlante for the Copa MX and got a draw. Pumas will not count with players like Dante Lopez and Antonio Garcia due to injuries and they may be substituted players like Lagos and Sosa, getting more time in the Liga MX. Players like Ludueña, who is a former Tuzo, and Bravo will be key for this game.
Pachuca: Turning Things Around
Pachuca was in a situation very similar to Pumas not long ago. Last season was a failure for the Tuzos and the return of “Ojitos” Meza was criticized. However; things took a turn for the better and now they are positioned in the 4th place in the general standings just below Pumas for a point.
Players like Valencia and Ayovi will be key for this match as the scoring streak of the first and the speed of the second can damage the defense of Pumas. Meza seems to know how to stop the offense of the teams as Pachuca has received only 5 goals this season just below Toluca and Cruz Azul.
