UNAM Pumas

Pumas is at the end of a grueling week. After a crazy draw with Tijuana on Sunday, they trekked up north to San Nicolás de los Garza to grind out a 1-1 draw on Wednesday against Tigres, and must now go to Querétaro to face Los Gallos Blancos in the Saturday matinee game.

Paco Palencia has done a good job not only with squad rotation (four of the eleven starters Wednesday night didn’t start on Sunday), but he’s been consistently able to make halftime adjustments and subs that have a meaningful impact.

Querétaro

Los Gallos Blancos come into the match unbeaten in their last three in Liga MX play, however they suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat on Wednesday to Cruz Azul in Copa MX play. This is a team that can score goals. Four different players scored against Necaxa last Saturday, and Luis Noriega has scored in three consecutive games. Ángel Sepúlveda, Emanuel Villa, and Camilo Sanvezzo all pose significant scoring threats for Querétaro, and Pumas’ defense will need to come up with answers for all of these players.

Defensively, Los Gallos are sound, having given up just five goals in their seven games. Tiago Volpi and the back line of Jonathan Bornstein, Miguel Martínez, Hiram Mier, and Jaime Gómez have gotten two clean sheets this season and should really present problems for Pumas’ offense. Bornstein and Gómez will match up well with Alan Mendoza and Josecarlos van Rankin, who often overlap when Pumas is able to break. Paco’s men may opt to stay back more often, looking to switch the field instead of making runs up the flank looking for a deadly cross into the box.
