Clausura 2018 Week 5 Preview: Saturday’s Games

Querétaro vs Veracruz – 6:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Querétaro (14th) fell 1-0 to Monarcas Morelia to keep them winless in two. The Gallos Blancos are also winless at home this season, with a loss and a draw in La Corregidora, but they’ll look to change that here when they take on a relegation rival. Of concern for Querétaro is their goal-scoring – or lack thereof. The Gallos have been shut out in three of their four games to date. On the other hand, they’ve only allowed two goals all season.

As for Veracruz (16th), the Tiburones Rojos drew 1-1 with Santos Laguna last weekend to keep them winless in the Clausura. Veracruz is sitting at the foot of the relegation standings and needs to pick up points ASAP if they want to remain in Liga MX next season. The Tiburones Rojos did manage to score their first goal of the season last weekend, and they’ll look to build on that here.

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.

The Tiburones have yet to score a goal this season, though, and of course they can’t win if they can’t score.
