Puebla vs Cruz Azul Match Preview
Puebla is currently last in the Liga MX with only one win from seven games and only five points. The lone win for Los Camoteros came against Chivas of Guadalajara away from home in week 5 of the competition. Puebla had a busy transfer window and still made some signings this month, some of the more recent additions to the team include Canadian striker Lucas Cavallini and Colombian defender Jhon Mondragon.
It is unclear if the pair will feature in this game but other interesting players to watch include the Colombians Felix Micolta and Christian Marrugo. This will be a very tough game for La Franja but is a winnable encounter especially playing at home.
Cruz Azul is undefeated this season but is currently in sixth place with 11 points after just two wins and five ties. La Maquina has not won in two consecutive games but this could be a great opportunity for the Mexico City team to get back on track and maintain its top eight position. Edgar Mendez has been the most impressive player so far for Paco Jemez this season with four goals from the first seven games.
The team has played Paco Jemez’s enticing style of play and has achieved the results but this is the type of game that is a must-win to make the playoffs. This is a game that Cruz Azul should win, even playing away from home because of the caliber of opponent. The game should be interesting as both teams need the three points from the game for distinct reasons and that should make it an entertaining encounter.
