On Saturday, the 20th of January, as part of the Mexican Primera, a match is set to take place between the teams Puebla and Necaxa.
In their latest match of the first round of the Clausura on the 14th of January, Puebla suffered a defeat to Monterrey with a score of 0:2. Puebla currently sits at the 17th position in the tournament table of the Clausura 2023/2024 season. In the playoffs of the Apertura, the team lost to the finalist Tigres in a total of 2 matches with an aggregate score of 2:5, losing the second leg match with a score of 0:3.
Necaxa showed some good gameplay in their latest match against Atlas that took place on the 15th of January. The final score of the game was 2:1 in favour of Necaxa. After this victory, Necaxa holds the 4th place, although they muffed the Apertura, finishing last with 3 wins in 17 matches, garnering only 15 points.
The visitors officially became the worst team in the last tournament of the Mexican Championship and it's unlikely that they would seem an underdog against the strong Necaxa after a failed season, despite their victory in the first tour. My money is on the hosts.
