Cruz Azul had the last laugh at Estadio Cuauhtemoc, but in general, Puebla are the ones who are performing better in this rivalry.

Puebla team news and form: Injury hit for Puebla

Puebla’s manager won’t be able to count on one of his key players for the home game against in-form Cruz Azul. Facundo Waller is injured and will skip the game against Los Celestes, which is surely another major plus in favor of our Puebla vs Cruz Azul predictions this week.

Predicted lineup: Rodriguez (GK), Orona, Angulo, Pereira, Gustavo, Velasco, De Buen, Diaz, Lopez, Ormeno & Sansores

Cruz Azul team news and form: Cruz Azul must perform

In order to directly qualify for the final series, Cruz Azul must get a result against Puebla on the 13th of April. Coach Martin Anselmi’s boys have a narrow one-point lead over Almada’s Pachuca for 4th place, so we believe they will do their best to avoid defeat against lackluster Puebla.

Predicted lineup: Mier (GK), Ditta, Salcedo, Piovi, Rodriguez, Rivero, Candido, Faravelli, Gutierrez, Antuna & Rotondi

Player to watch: Uriel Antuna

A man who can change the course of a game at any given point, Uriel Antuna is proving to be one of the most influential players in this year’s Liga MX campaign. The 26-year-old winger has a price tag of €4.0m on his head, but if he continues performing at such a high level, it wouldn’t take long before a team from Europe snaps him up.

Antuna key for Los Celestes

Uriel Antuna is the 2nd-best finisher at his manager’s disposal, but he is the best when it comes to providing assists. Surely, we will see his name among the starters on the 13th of April, as we consider this a massive plus that will help our Puebla vs Cruz Azul predictions succeed.
