Santos Laguna to Win

It took a goal in the stoppage time of the second leg against Monterrey to get Santos Laguna into the semi-finals, but that goal boosted the confidence of the team and lead to the 3-0 demolition of Puebla in the first leg of the semi-finals. Our prediction is for Santos Laguna to win this game on the wave of that confidence, especially since they’ve beaten Puebla in three of their last five meetings.

Second Half to Be the Highest-Scoring Half

Although we do expect Puebla to come into this game firing from all cylinders since they have a three-goal deficit to overcome, we still think that the second half will bring more goals than the first. As the game progresses, Puebla will become more desperate to score and that should lead to some free-flowing, offensive football from them and open up a lot of space for counter-attacks for Santos Laguna. Of course, Puebla could score an early goal or two in the first half, which would make them more cautious in the second, but we don’t see that happening here.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we already said, the home team will have to play with more risk than they would probably like due to that huge deficit, which should be enough for them to score at least one goal. It should also offer Santos Laguna more options from the counter-attacks, so we also expect to see them scoring at least one goal. All in all, both teams to score sounds like a reasonable prediction.

Puebla vs Santos Laguna preview: Can Puebla pull off a miraculous comeback?

The second leg of the Mexican Clausura semi-finals between Puebla and Santos Laguna should be interesting after the 3-0 Santos Laguna win in the first leg. So, let’s check the teams out in more detail.

Puebla

After finishing third in the regular season of the Mexican Clausura, Puebla struggled in the quarter-finals against Atlas and only managed to reach the semi-finals thanks to better seeding since the teams were even after two legs. Unfortunately for them, Puebla will have a very tough task in the second leg against Santos Laguna after losing the first game 3-0, so it’s likely that this is the end of the road for them. Maximiliano Perg and Cristian Tabo are injured and unlikely to play in the upcoming game.

Santos Laguna

The team that finished fifth in the Mexican Clausura is on their way to the finals of this competition after beating Puebla 3-0 in the first leg of the semi-finals. Before that, Santos Laguna eliminated Monterrey by scoring the winning goal in the stoppage time of the second-leg match, which obviously boosted the team’s confidence enough to spur that 3-0 win and the overall great performance. The team will have to deal with the ongoing injuries since a few players will miss the rematch, although none of those players are irreplaceable.
