This Saturday, March 3, 2018 (5:00 PM Pacific) Monterrey will host Puebla at the Estadio BBVA Bancomer in the 10th round of matches in the Liga MX Clausura 2018. Both teams are currently in the mix for the playoffs and should provide an interesting and hard-fought match.
Monterrey is the clear favorite to win this game due to their favorable home-field advantage. Los Rayados are currently fifth on the Liga MX table with 15 points and are undefeated at home in four games. Antonio Mohamed’s team has one of the most talented squads in the league with players like Rogelio Funes Mori, Dorlan Pabon, and Aviles Hurtado.
Other Monterrey players have performed well recently like Alfonso Gonzalez and Jesus Molina. Gonzalez has been one of the revelations this season as he is leading the team with four goals scored.
Puebla has been a nice surprise this season as it is currently in 10th place with 14 points and is undefeated at home. La Franja has played much better at home than on the road and this Saturday they will nonetheless encounter another tough visit. Manager Enrique Meza keeps an orderly side that has proven to be one of the most enticing teams to watch this season.
Puebla has some intriguing options in the attack like Francisco Acuña and Lucas Cavallini and also has a solid midfield and backline. The team is well-balanced and can handle any team in the Liga MX but it is yet to win a game away from home.
