After a road loss to León, Pumas look for another win that could maintain the top spot for Guardianes 2020.
Pumas suffered their first loss at Guard1anes 2020, losing to León in a 0-2 loss. Lillini’s men will be looking to maintain a top four spot ahead of the bottom-placed team, Necaxa. Pumas and Necaxa had a fight with each other. Necaxa will still be a tough opponent, especially at Olimpico Universitário, where they have only lost 2 times in the last 5 matches.
The last time Aurizaulez faced Necaxa at home ended with a 2-0 victory for the home team. Pumas will seek to repeat that fate. So far, the player of the season, Alfredo Talavera, will not be able to defend the home team when he received a red card in the previous match. Julio Gonzalez, 29, didn’t seem too out of place when he came in to replace Talavera; This is an opportunity for him to regain his confidence when playing on the field. Talavera’s red card couldn’t have come at a better time, when he will face cross-city opponents in the US on Saturday, October 3.
Argentina-Paraguay duo Juan Dinenno and Carlos Gonzalez could capitalize on this match to increase their total goals. Given that this is a shorter opponent, we could see Uruguayan Facundo Waller start the game for the first time since his arrival.
Andres Lillini has to be careful about him getting in line this Saturday night. Everyone must rest well before the Clásico Capitalino match against the US. Getting a win over Necaxa would be one step closer to securing a playoff spot. Lillini has bonded this group since his arrival and made them believe in quality football. Lillini has also helped them achieve things that haven’t been done for a while.
This match against Necaxa shouldn’t be easy, but a win means they’ll be ready to face their toughest opponent a few days later.
