📏 Form Guide
Puebla will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 1-0 Liga MX (Clausura) triumph vs CD Guadalajara.
In that game, Puebla had 40% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Puebla was Gustavo Ferrareis (40'). Guadalajara got 19 attempts at goal with 2 on target.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that Puebla have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Puebla have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 11 goals in the process. With no two games being the same, it remains to be seen whether such a trend will persist in this upcoming match.
A look at their previous results shows us that Puebla:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Atlas in their last 3 matches.
- haven't beaten Atlas in their last 2 matches in the league.
Atlas head into the meeting following on from a 4-0 CONCACAF Champions League win vs Olimpia in their last match.
For Atlas, the goalscorers were Julián Quiñones (38', 92'), Ozziel Herrera (62') and Aldo Rocha (77').
The stats tell the story, and Atlas have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 9 goals in total. In defence, Atlas have not been doing too well.
Taking a look at their past results, Atlas:
- have not been beaten by Puebla when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 13 league games. They must be getting so desperate.
↔️ Head to head
Checking out their prior head to head meetings dating back to 13/03/2021, there has been little to separate the clubs with Puebla winning 2 of those games, Atlas 2 and 2 being draws in regulation time.
A combined total of 8 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 4 of them for Los Camoteros and 4 created by Los Zorros. That is an average goals per game value of 1.33.
The last league meeting between the two was Liga MX (Apertura) match day 10 on 21/08/2022 when it ended Atlas 1-1 Puebla.
On that occasion, Atlas managed 54% possession and 14 shots on goal with 6 on target. The scorer was Julián Quiñones (45').
At the other end, Puebla had 10 shots on goal with 6 on target. Martín Barragán (11') was the scorer.
The match was refereed by César Ramos.
ℹ️ Team News: Puebla
The Puebla manager Eduardo Arce doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this match owing to a fully injury-free group ready to go.
It seems likely that Los Camoteros will possibly go for a 3-5-2 formation for the game, utilising Anthony Silva, Emanuel Gularte, Gaston Silva, Emilio Gonzalez, Diego De Buen, Pablo Gonzalez, O. Andres Fernandez, Angel Robles, Federico Mancuello, Guillermo Martinez and Gustavo Ferrareis.
📰 Team News: Atlas
Due to a fully injury-free squad ready to go, the Atlas manager Benjamin Mora has zero fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game.
We are inclined to think that Los Zorros could decide to make use of a 4-4-2 lineup, going with Camilo Vargas, Martin Hugo Nervo, Anderson Santamaria, Gaddi Aguirre, Luis Reyes, Diego Barbosa, Julian Quinones, Aldo Rocha, Brian Lozano, Jonathan Herrera and Julio Cesar Furch.
We’re of the opinion that Atlas and Puebla could both find goals hard to come by here.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. We’re therefore expecting a very even match with a 0-0 scoreline at the end of the 90.
