The UNAM Pumas vs Atlante Liga MX match will take place this Sunday, March 16, 2014 (11:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario. In one of the most significant games during Week 11 of the Clausura 2014, Pumas will attempt to win in order to remain within the top of the standings. Meanwhile, the 3 points for the Potros translates into a much needed breathing space in their relegation battle.
Pumas, Still In The Fight
After loosing last week against Morelia, and with a draw in the Copa MX that left them out of that tournament, Pumas has had a rough week. However, the team coached by Jose Luis Trejo is still in the fight for a liguilla seed which will give them a good chance at the title.Coach Trejo will have everyone, except Jose Antonio Garcia, at his disposal for Sunday’s game.
Pumas is placed in a liguilla position and must do everything to get the three points at home and stay within the first eight. Players like Bravo, Ludueña and Veron will be key to bring the team to the front and attack.
Atlante, Within Liguilla And Relegation
Atlante has a priority that should be more important than a post-season and that is to save themselves from relegation. Although they have had good results in the last four weeks, they are still last in the relegation zone which would condemn them into the Ascenso MX.
The Potros under the coaching of Pablo Marini is playing decent and has obtained good results needed in order to seek their maintenance in the Liga MX. If Atlante was to be relegated, it would not be the first time this happened but it would impact the team since it would be the first time since the team moved to Cancun.
Pumas UNAM vs Atlante Prediction
