This Sunday, October 1, 2017 (4:30 PM Pacific) Santos Laguna will host Puebla at the Estadio Corona TSM for a game in the 12th round of matches in the Liga MX Apertura 2017. Both teams have been struggling massively in this tournament and chances at making the playoffs for either team look slim to none.
How to Watch Santos vs Puebla
Santos Laguna has had a very disappointing campaign, currently in 16th place with only eight points but does have a game in hand as well. The latest result for Los Guerreros was a 2-1 loss against Cruz Azul away from home and will now look to turn things around under new manager Robert Siboldi. While Santos does have a solid team, several players have been massively underperforming like Osvaldo Martinez, who has not been an effective player in the midfield.
Julio Furch has been one of the most impressive players on the team with five goals from nine games. This should be a very winnable game for Santos Laguna, playing against a weak Puebla team at home.
Puebla is currently in last place with only seven points and has not won in its last five games. Los Camoteros have fired Rafael Garcia as their head coach and Enrique Meza is said to be presented as Puebla’s new manager after this game against Santos Laguna. La Franja does have some very intriguing players like Lucas Cavallini and Christian Marrugo but does not have enough quality to compete in this league.
The Canadian striker, Cavallini has been impressive since joining the team with two goals from three games and should be one of the players to keep an eye on in this game. The game should be a hard-fought encounter between two bottom feeders who need the three points from the game.
