THE TEAM NEWS

SAN LUIS

  • Atletico San Luis have been extremely inconsistent over the last few weeks and, following a 2-2 away draw at Monterrey, they have now posted a W2, D1, L2 mark in their last five league contests. They have been solid at home, though, losing just one of four matches to date (W2, D1, L1).
  • Star right-back Matias Catalan has missed the last few games and even though he has been listed as questionable he’s not expected to start here. Ian Gonzalez missed last week’s match due to a suspension, but he should be back in the squad in time for this contest.

Expected starting XI: Carlos Rodriguez; Unai Bilbao, Juan Portales, Luis Fernando Leon, Luis Ricardo Reyes; Camilo Mayada, Juan David Castro, Luis Felipe Gallegos; German Berterame, Nicolas Ibanez, Diego Hernandez Jimenez

PUEBLA

  • Puebla sit in the lower half of the standings with 11 points, but they seem to be trending in the right direction with only one defeat in their last five contests (W2, D2, L1). They are coming off a 0-0 draw at home against Tigres UANL, and that result pushed their undefeated streak to three games (W2, D1).
  • Veteran defender Jesus Paganoni remains sidelined due to concussion-like symptoms, and he has missed several games already due to this ailment. Brayan Angulo remains out with an ankle injury, but Javier Salas could be ready to return after a one-game suspension.

Expected starting XI: Nikolas Vikonis; Jesus Zavala, Daniel Arreola, Maximiliano Perg, Salvador Reyes; Pablo Gonzalez, Javier Salas, Osvaldo Martinez; Diego Abella, Omar Fernandez, Christian Tabo

THE PREDICTION

San Luis edge Puebla by just two points in the standings, and their overall Clausura record has been balanced so far – the hosts have posted a W3, D4, L2 mark, while the visitors have earned a W3, D2, L4 record. San Luis thrive on the attacking end, while Puebla are a solid defensive team and, in fact, they currently boast the league’s best defence with only seven goals conceded in nine matches. Based on how even these two sides are this match could easily end with a draw.
