The battle for the finals is on, with the best 4 teams in Mexican soccer edging ever closer to the grand final of Liguilla 2021. The first leg of semifinal 2 will be played at Corona Stadium in the city of Torreón when Santos Laguna receives Puebla this Thursday, May 20, 2021.
How do Santos Laguna and Puebla arrive?
Even though Santos Laguna ended the season on a sour note resulting in not entering the Liguilla directly and playing the game corresponding to the repechage, we have recently seen a very different team. In the repechage match, they won 5-0 against Querétaro. In the quarterfinals, they faced Monterrey, where they won with a 3-2 aggregate result. The first leg was a 2-1 victory for Santos Laguna, and the second leg was a 1-1 draw, which showcased the Santos Laguna team of the past.

Speaking of Puebla, we can affirm the following: they were not at their best in their quarterfinal matches against Atlas. The first leg played at the Atlas field was lost 0-1, while the second leg was won 1-0 thanks to an own goal by Anderson Santamaría in the 70th minute. The overall result was 1-1, but, thanks to the third place occupied in the regular phase, it assured them the pass to the semifinals at Puebla. Their matches were not as they expected, but their excellent performance throughout the tournament favored them at the time of the tiebreaker.
