Puebla vs Lobos de la BUAP
Mexico – Liga MX
Date: Monday, 8 October 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Cuauhtemoc (Puebla).
Puebla have seen a troubled spell of form in late September but still sit in the mid-table with 14 points to their name after 11 games, just a point behind the top 8. They’ve only bounced back from a 4-0 Cup thrashing at Tigres UANL with a 2-2 draw at Pumas UNAM and Enrique Meza’s men will hope they can show more at Estadio Cuauhtémoc.
Los Camoteros have been a tougher side at this ground and the thriller 2-3 loss to America seen beforehand only ended a three-game unbeaten streak – where they held off Monterrey in Cup and beat both Atlas and Monterrey in Liga MX.
Lobos de la BUAP have, on the other end, escaped the rock-bottomed with a contrasting form of recent – where they ended a five-match losing streak with wins over Leon and Morelia. Beating Leon did come as a shock and we’ll now surely see them very motivated to build on it, but it’s questionable whether the visitors really overcame their woes on the road with a 16-game winless streak seen beforehand!
Puebla vs Lobos de la BUAP: Head-to-head
- Puebla have beaten Lobos 0-1 earlier this year, with a goal from Christian Camilo Marrugo.
- Lobos de la BUAP have snatched wins on both of their last two trips to this ground, though, and have records to build on too.
- Nonetheless, they’ve largely struggled on the road this term and the visitors obviously have a lot to prove.
Puebla vs Lobos de la BUAP: Prediction
We don’t see them doing so, though, and we’ll now back Puebla to return to the winning ways in front of the home crowd once again – as we go for a Home win at 1.95. The home side have been in fine form beforehand and we do believe they’ll be able to show off now as well.
They might need to do just that in the attacking third to secure the points and we do believe we’ll now see goals on both ends, as we also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.90 – in hope we’ll see motivated attacking lines and open spaces at the back in an exciting contest at Estadio Cuauhtémoc!
