Both sides are in dire need for a win in their quest to remain in the struggle for a playoff seed.
Puebla has had a good start to their season as they have earned 6 points and sit in 10th place after 2 wins and 2 losses. The team coached by Enrique Meza is coming from a 2-0 against Xolos of Tijuana, and this Friday they aim to return to their winning ways when they host Chivas.

The ‘camoteros’ must win not only to surge into the top positions on the table, but most importantly to move further away from the bottom of the dreaded relegation table. At the start of the jornada 5, they sit in 14th place, with a 17 point lead over last placed Veracruz. This lead partly due to Puebla’s good start to the season, as opposed to Veracruz who only has 2 points.
Chivas of Guadalajara has started the new season with the same form as they ended the previous season; terribly. The team coached by Matias Almeyda sits in 15th place with only 4 points, and while offensively they have done well, defensively the team has been a disaster conceding 7 goals.
This Friday, the rebaño sagrado is forced to win ir order to remain near the top eight; anything else, and doubts of Almeyda’s position with the team will be arise. Chivas will have a full squad even after five players left during the week to play with Mexico.
