On Saturday, 20th January 2024, an intriguing match is set to take place between the teams Atletico San Luis and Pumas UNAM, as part of Mexico's Primera Division.
Atletico San Luis continues a strong start in the current Liga MX: Clausura season. In the first match against Mazatlan, Atletico claimed a victory with a score of 1:0. The lone goal in this match was scored in the 73rd minute by Luka Bonatini. With this victory, Atletico San Luis is occupying the fifth spot in the league table with 3 points. In the Apertura, the team made it to the semi-finals, where they lost to America over two matches, suffering a defeat in the first match 0:5.
Pumas UNAM played their first match against Juarez as part of the Liga MX: Clausura championship. The match took place on 14th January, with Pumas emerging victorious with a score of 1:0. The goal, which brought UNAM the win, was scored in the 69th minute of the game by Eduardo Salvio. In the 81st minute of the game, Natan Silva received a red card and left the field. In the Apertura, the team also reached the semi-finals, where they lost to Tigres with an aggregate score of 1:2.
For the second round, I'm betting on the total number of goals to be under 2.5. During the Apertura, these evenly matched rivals rarely showcased high-scoring football.
