The time has arrived to see which team between Dorados of Sinaloa and Lobos BUAP gets promoted into Mexico’s top tier division, the Liga MX. Dorados will host Lobos this Saturday, May 20, 2017 (7:00 PM Pacific) in what is expected to be a memorable and intense second-leg match at the Estadio Banorte in Culiacan. The winner of this match for the ‘Ascenso’ will confirm the best team in that division and will take the vacant spot left by Chiapas in the first division.
In the first-leg played in Puebla, Lobos were the dominant team gaining higher possession of the ball throughout most of the match. The team led by Rafa Puente Jr. demonstrated the same level of form which gave them their recent Clausura 2017 Ascenso MX title just weeks ago. With a 2-1 win in the first-leg, Lobos must now win or tie to gain promotion, while a loss by one goal will push the game into overtime. The ‘manada’ will have an extremely difficult match in their visit to Sinaloa as all the pressure will be against them, therefore expect for them to look for an early goal in order to pass that pressure onto their Saturday rivals.
Dorados of Sinaloa did not look in their best form in their loss last Saturday. Undeniably, Lobos was the team in greater form considering they had played the final just recently, yet Dorados did manage to earn the best seed at the end of this season’s regular standings. The team coached by Gabriel Caballero will have the pressure to win the game at least by one goal to push the game into overtime, yet a win by two or more goals will give them their desired promotion.
