Santos Laguna vs Puebla
Mexico Liga MX
Date: Monday, 2nd October 2017
Kick off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Corona.
Two of the weakest sides in the opening ten rounds of the Apertura campaign in the top flight of the Mexican football are about to take on each other in the last game of the Matchday No 11 at Estadio Nuevo Corona.
Whilst Puebla were kind of expected to struggle even before the season began, not many experts could have predicted nightmare kick off for Santos Laguna who had much higher ambitions before the start of the campaign.
The defeat to Cruz Azul was the breaking point for Jose Manuel de la Torre who was sacked immediately after the game.
The Uruguayan manager Robert Siboldi will thus make his debut on the bench just against the rock-bottomed Puebla on Sunday.
The visitors just don’t have the quality to stay competitive in the elite class of the Mexican football and areal miracle should happen for them to avoid the very foot of the standings at the end of the season.
Rafael Garcia’s side lost four of their last six matches and they don’t have much to hope for against highly-motivated Santos Laguna here.
Santos Laguna vs Puebla: Head to head
The hosts have been more than dominant in the history of head to head clashes with Puebla who won only two of 21 matches against Santos Laguna.
Laguna won three of last four meetings with Puebla who have failed to find the target in last two H2H encounters.
Santos Laguna vs Puebla: Prediction
We believe the change on the bench will cause the much wanted positive shock for the hosts who are massive favourites here.
This is going to be a one-sided game from the very first whistle and we are backing the home win with the higher stakes at 3/4 odds.
