This Saturday, July 8, 2017 (12:30 PM Pacific) Club America will play Puebla at the Talen Energy Stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a friendly match. Both teams will have important but distinct objectives in the Apertura 2017 and will be looking to prepare for those objectives.
Club America is expected to contend for the title each tournament by its very demanding fan base. Las Aguilas have entered a new era with a familiar face in Miguel “El Piojo” Herrera who has led the team to glory before. It will be interesting to see if any of the fresh signings like Pedro Arce or Guido Rodriguez get some game tie in this encounter. Emilio Orrantia could also be put to the test by Miguel Herrera to face his former team. This is a game that America should be able to win as will be expected when the two sides face off in the Apertura 2017.
Puebla should not be a title contender next season but will be fighting to stay in the top flight of Mexican soccer, involved in the relegation race. Los Camoteros have acquired some intriguing players this offseason, most coming from Club America in Erik Pimentel, Jose Daniel Guerrero and Moises Munoz.
Another key player to look out for will be Felix Micolta, who was brought in from Chiapas after showing sparks of brilliance with Los Jaguares last season. The match should be an entertaining affair with both teams looking to test out their fresh signings.
