Clausura 2018 Week 3 Preview: Sunday’s Games

Pumas UNAM vs América – 1:00 PM – Univision / Univision Deportes
Pumas UNAM (1st) beat Atlas 3-1 last weekend to remain perfect this season. The universitarios stumbled in midweek, however, where they suffered a 2-0 loss to Lobos BUAP in the Copa MX. Pumas will look to keep up their winning ways in league play, however, and keep ahold of first place while they’re at it. They have the best attacking record so far in the young season with six goals in two games and they’ll look to continue their prolific scoring here.

As for América (5th), the Águilas drew 2-2 with Pachuca last weekend to keep them unbeaten this season. They’ll look to get back to winning ways when they go back on the road for this one; they won twice as many away games as home games last season, and they’ll look to continue their good road form here. They’ll also be more rested than their opponent as they did not have a midweek game.

Clausura 2018 Week 3 Preview: Saturday’s Games

Querétaro vs Tijuana – 6:00 PM – Galavisión
Querétaro (9th) beat Lobos BUAP 0-2 last weekend to give the Gallos Blancos their first win of the season – and a little breathing room in the relegation standings. They earned another win in the Copa MX in midweek, where they beat Monarcas Morelia 3-1. Querétaro will look to keep the good results coming here, although they will be without the suspended Edson Puch for this one.

As for Tigres UANL (10th), the universitarios beat Santos Laguna 2-1 last weekend to similarly earn their first win of the season. The reigning champions will now look for their first away win when they visit Querétaro here. Tigres will be better-rested than their opponent as they had no midweek game.

Clausura 2018 Week 3 Preview: Friday’s Games

Puebla vs Veracruz – 8:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Puebla (11th) fell 1-0 to Monarcas Morelia last weekend to end their winning start to the Clausura 2018 season. The Poblanos will look to get back on track when they return home to the Estadio Cuauhtémoc for this one, where they are unbeaten this season. They picked up a win in midweek as well with a 1-3 away victory against Cruz Azul in the Copa MX. This is an important game in terms of relegation, with Puebla currently sitting three spots above Veracruz in the Tabla de Cociente.

As for Veracruz (16th), the Tiburones Rojos fell 0-2 to Monterrey last weekend to keep them winless this season. They also fell in the Copa MX in midweek, where they suffered a 0-2 loss to Tampico Madero. Veracruz needs to start picking up points quickly before the gap between them and safety widens even further, and picking up points against the other teams in the relegation conversation is especially valuable. The Tiburones have yet to score a goal this season, though, and of course they can’t win if they can’t score.

But Matías Britos restored Querétaro’s lead in the 63rd minute with a header of his own. Then, in the 83rd minute, Yerson Candelo added an insurance goal as his shot to the upper corner made it 3-1.

C18 Copa MX Week 2 Review: Tuesday’s Games

Cafetaleros 2-1 León
Cafetaleros moved into first place in Group 1 with a 2-1 win against León. The visitors looked dangerous when Maxi Cerato and Álvaro Ramos combined, while Cafetaleros created chances of their own on the counter. But despite a number of opportunities at either end, neither team could break the deadlock in the first half.

The breakthrough didn’t come until the 74th minute, when Diego de la Torre sent in a cross for Leonardo Ramos, whose header made it 1-0 for the hosts. In the 82nd minute, Eduardo Pérez made it 2-0 as he won the ball in the box, got around the keeper, and scored. León pulled a goal back in stoppage time through Iván Piris, but La Fiera wasn’t able to go on to find an equalizer.

With the 2-1 win, Cafetaleros reach three points while León still has three.
