Mexico – Liga MX Clausura

Venue: Estadio Jalisco (Guadalajara).

Both teams went through disappointing campaigns in the recently concluded Apertura season. Atlas have begun their Clausura run with a win, in view of making amends, whereas Puebla are yet to start theirs. However, it seems as if Puebla will have to wait even longer for their first win, considering their struggles on the road.

Atlas vs Puebla Prediction

Atlas were on the road the last match-day, and they still managed to record a win over Cruz Azul. Do note that Atlas had even conceded an early goal, and were trailing for almost the first half, before making their comeback.

Puebla, who are yet to begin their Clausura campaign, will definitely be worried about this fighting spirit of their counterparts.

Right away, the problems faced by Puebla in road fixtures come to the forefront this weekend. As of now, they are on a three-game losing run in away matches, and were winless in 12 of their previous 13 such games. 

In addition, in the whole of 2019, the team had recorded a total of just five wins away from home, and they had failed to keep a clean sheet in 13 of their last 14 such match-ups. Also do note that Puebla were winless in 21 of their previous 16 overall fixtures.

On the other hand, Atlas have started their campaign with a comeback win, that too on the road, and were unbeaten in seven of their preceding eleven overall matches.

In addition, Atlas had recorded 9 of the prior 12 h2h wins, and had found the back of the net in 11 of the previous 13 such meetings. Importantly, at this venue, Atlas have won five of the last six clashes between these teams, and only once have they lost such a game since 2011.

Taking into account these findings, it’s adjudged that Atlas are the favorites to record the three points this Saturday.
