Pumas UNAM did get a win a while ago, but it was not under Gustavo Lema’s rule. He is still on the hunt for a first-ever win against Cruz Azul.

Cruz Azul team news and form: Impressive momentum by Cruz Azul

Coach Martin Anselmi’s players are showing great consistency this season. They ended the regular part of the Clausura campaign, with three wins and two draws. On top of that, they crushed Pumas UNAM 2-0 in the first leg of this quarter-final game.

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

Pumas UNAM team news and form: Pumas are knocked down

Pumas UNAM performed well against Cruz Azul last week. They had 15 shots at target and 48.0% possession. However, the result on the scoreboard after 90 minutes of play was 0-2 in favor of the visitors at Estadio Olimpico Universitario. Sure, coach Gustavo Lema doesn’t have any injuries or suspensions to deal with, but we still believe our Cruz Azul vs Pumas UNAM predictions will succeed.

Predicted lineup: Gonzalez (GK), Rivas, Bennevendo, Magallan, Aldrete, Rivas, Caicedo, Suarez, Quispe, Huerta & Funes

Player to watch: Uriel Antuna

In-form Antuna is going to be the key threat to Gonzalez and the defenders in front of him on the 13th of May. Uriel Antuna is a firm starter under coach Martin Anselmi’s rule, so we should see him start at Estadio Ciudad de los Deportes.

Antuna keeps bagging goals

If he continues to score as frequently as he has this season, he might just become the best Cruz Azul finisher in the Clausura campaign. So far, he has five goals and four assists to his name. One more and he will tie Angel Sepulveda for first place.
