Clausura 2019 Week 3 Preview: Friday’s Games

Monarcas Morelia vs Veracruz – 10:00 PM 
Monarcas Morelia (16th) fell 1-0 to Santos Laguna last weekend to keep the michoacanos winless this season. They’ll look to rectify that when they return home to the Estadio Morelos for this one, but they had a distinctly mixed home record last season, going 3-2-3 and also managing just nine goals in those eight matches. But Morelia will be facing a vulnerable opponent in this one, and they’ll also have the advantage of not having played a midweek game. The pressure will be on for La Monarquia to get a win in this one.

As for Veracruz (14th), the Tiburones Rojos fell 0-1 to Lobos BUAP last weekend to keep them winless in the Clausura. That loss also dealt a serious blow to Veracruz’s hopes of avoiding relegation, and they’ll be desperate to start winning. To do that, they’ll also need to start scoring; the Tiburones have yet to manage a goal in league play. They failed to score in midweek as well, where they suffered a 2-0 loss to Mineros in the Copa MX.

Clausura 2019 Week 2 Preview: Sunday’s Games

Toluca vs Puebla – 1:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Toluca (2nd) came from behind to earn a 1-3 victory against Monarcas Morelia last weekend, and they’ll be looking to make it two wins in a row when they return home to the Estadio Nemesio Diez for this one. The Diablos Rojos will be encouraged by their response to falling behind last weekend and they’ll also have the advantage of some extra rest for this one as they did not have a midweek game.

As for Puebla (9th), the Poblanos drew 1-1 with Cruz Azul last weekend. They’ll now look for their first win when they go on the road in this one. Puebla was on the road in midweek as well, where they fell 3-2 to TM Fútbol Club in the Copa MX. They’ll look to put that behind them here, but Toluca is a hard team to beat at home. Nevertheless, Puebla will want to get that first win under their belt sooner rather than later. Although they’re not realistically involved in the relegation fight this season, despite their penultimate position in the Tabla de Cociente, they’ll want to strengthen their position for next year by earning as many points as possible this season.
