In week 11 of the Liga MX Clausura 2017, Puebla will host Monarcas Morelia at the Estadio Cuauhtémoc this Sunday, March 19, 2017 (5:00 PM Pacific). The match is an important one with both sides still in the relegation race this season and should produce an intense encounter.
Puebla has turned it around after a slow start and is now 9 points ahead of last place Veracruz on the relegation table and 8 points ahead of penultimate place, Monarcas Morelia. In the regular season table, Puebla is currently in 15th place with nine points. Most recently the ‘camoteros ‘are coming from a tough 2-0 loss against Tigres UANL in week 9 of the Clausura. Before that loss, Puebla had been on a nice run under Jose Cardozo, undefeated in four consecutive games, only allowing two goals in that span. Puebla also had two huge victories in that run of good form beating Chiapas 3-0 and Toluca 3-1.
The main player to watch on Puebla for this game will be Alexis Canelo who has three goals and four assists this Clausura. The Argentine has proven to be a danger for opponents with his decent pace, good finishing ability and outstanding link up play. The match will be an intriguing one at the Cuauhtémoc this Sunday with Puebla seeking the three points from the match.
Monarcas Morelia will also look to desperately get points from this game, only a point ahead of Veracruz in last place on the relegation table. The team from Michoacán is on a decent run, only having one loss in the last four games. This would include two huge victories against direct relegation opponents in Chiapas and Veracruz. The latest result for ‘la monarquia’ was a huge 1-0 win over Veracruz in week 9 of the Clausura 2017.
The momentum from that match could prove to carry on to this game with this also being a huge match concerning the relegation battle. Raul Ruidiaz has been the main man on Morelia with four goals with his countryman, Andy Polo also providing good work with great linkup play throughout the tournament. This should be an interesting encounter with both teams having the motivation to obtain the three points from the game, both trying to evade relegation.
