Atlante has not been the most impressive team in this competition but has achieved two surprising draws against Group 4 leaders Club Tijuana. The latest result for Los Potros de Hierro was a scoreless draw against Club Tijuana away from home in what proved to be a hard-fought encounter. The second-tier side is currently bottom of Group 4 with only two points but could finish second and slide into the knockout stage of the competition if it can get the three points from this game.
Puebla is currently second with four points in this Group 4 of the tournament and holds the last spot for classification for the round of 16 in the Copa MX. A win or a draw will secure Los Camoteros place in the knockout stage of the competition but a draw would leave them out of the top 16. The three points form the game would even propel La Franja to a first-place finish over Club Tijuana and secure a higher seed heading into the round of 16.
Rafael Garcia does count with some intriguing offensive options that could lead the team to victory including players like Carlos Salom, Leonel Aguirre, Cristian Esparza and the recently signed Lucas Cavallini. The game should be a very contested, hard-fought duel as both teams could greatly benefit from the three points out of this game.
