Atlas recently thrashed Puebla 0-4 at Estadio Cuauhtemoc, but the general head-to-head advantage is on Puebla’s side.

Puebla team news and form: Four-point Puebla desperate for victory

Not only did Puebla lose four consecutive games, but the last one was a fiasco. The match at Estadio Alfonso Lastras ended 4-0 in favor of Atletico San Luis. A result that could’ve been even more embarrassing, as Fernando Navaro earned himself a foolish red card and will now miss the match against Puebla.

Predicted lineup: Rodriguez (GK), Vazquez, Silva, Pereira, Gustavo, de Buen, Angulo, Alvarez, Robles, Sansores & Velasco

Atlas team news and form: Lackluster stuff from Atlas in Clausura

The visitors aren’t exactly performing that much better than their rivals this season. Atlas haven’t won a single game in the last five Clausura matches, and they are sinking without a trace. Anderson Santamaria won’t partake in the match against Puebla, as he also got a red card in last week’s match versus Club America, which ended in a brutal 1-5 win for the Eagles.

Predicted lineup: Vargas (GK), Aguirre, Nervo, Lozano, Dominguez, Rocha, Marquez, Murillo, Garcia, Fulgencio & Aguirre

Player to watch: Aldo Rocha

Atlas’ team captain is the player to watch in our Puebla vs Atlas prediction, as he’s by far the most influential player at coach Benat’s disposal. The defensive midfielder was one of the most frequently booked players in Liga MX last season, which is a testament to his unyielding character.

Rocha has to be careful on Saturday

If Aldo Rocha doesn’t control his temper, he might earn himself a suspension ahead of the very important match versus Monterrey on the 18th of March. And that’s not something coach Benat can afford.
