SuperCopa MX: Puebla vs Monarcas Morelia

supercopamxPuebla, winners of the Clausura 2015 Copa MX, have captured the first trophy of the new Apertura 2015 season: the 2015 SuperCopa MX. Puebla defeated Monarcas Morelia 1-0 on Monday night to lift the SuperCopa title.

It was the first competitive game for Puebla’s new coach, Pablo Marini, who fared better than Morelia’s new coach, Enrique Meza. Both of these teams will be involved in the relegation fight in the upcoming Apertura 2015, and Puebla will go into the new season with some confidence on the back of this win. As for Morelia – currently penultimate in the relegation standings – improvements will need to come quickly.

The game was a little slow to get started, with the teams playing in the afternoon heat in Frisco, Texas. The game was halted briefly in each half for hydration breaks, and neither team could find a goal until the second half.

Puebla scored what proved to be the lone goal of the match in the 67th minute. The Poblanos earned a corner kick and it was put into a dangerous spot; Cirilo Saucedo made the initial save, but Luis Gabriel Rey followed up on the rebound to put Puebla ahead 1-0.

Morelia was unable to find an equalizer, with Puebla’s new goalkeeper, Cristian Campestrini, showing his abilities en route to a shutout, with Meza’s attacking substitutions – Carlos Ochoa and Mauro Cejas – unable to make an impact.

Lineups

Puebla: Cristian Campestrini, Mario de Luna, Patricio Araujo, Carlos Gutiérrez, Luis Robles, Christian Bermúdez (Roberto Juárez 81′), Flavio Santos (David Toledo 66′), Luis Gabriel Rey, Alberto Acosta (Matías Alustiza 57′), Óscar Rojas, Francisco Torres.
