Puebla will have a tough battle when it hosts Monterrey this Friday for Matchday 4 of the Torneo Clausura of Liga MX.
Puebla comes from giving América a surprise and wants to continue doing so when they return home this weekend.
Monterrey, for its part, does not want to see its arch-rival succeed, and knows that a victory in this game can serve to take first place from Tigres.
Friday, January 27 at 8:05 pm ET at the Cuauhtemoc stadium
Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Puebla
Puebla is in the tenth position of the tournament with 4 points after beating Querétaro 2-0, drawing with América 2-2, and being crushed by Pachuca 5-1 in the first game.
It was precisely against the Águilas that they showed their best face, managing to get a draw at the Azteca stadium against one of the strongest teams, showing that they have the weapons to fight this battle.
In the last tournament, they were the team that tied the most times (10) and one that won the least (4), an image that they want to change this time. They have scored 5 goals and no player has scored more than 1. Argentine Federico Mancuello is the most important player, scoring 1 goal and giving 2 assists, as well as goalkeeper Antony Silva, who always saves the team.
Why Bet on Monterrey
Monterrey is one of the strongest teams in Mexican soccer in this tournament and they want to prove it, however, in their debut they were defeated at home by Chivas 0-1. After that, they went out to recover the lost points and beat Cruz Azul (2-3) first and then Atlético San Luis (3-1), which helped them to place third, just 1 point behind the leader, Tigres.
Among the novelties for this game would be the premiere as a starter of Víctor Guzmán. The defender entered after 39 minutes of the last game against Atlético San Luis due to the injury of Érick Aguirre, who would not be available for this weekend either. Guzmán would be the central defender and Stefan Medina would move to the right back.
Rogelio Funes Mori stood out last weekend and scored the three goals of the win, reaching four in the tournament and being the top scorer.
