Pumas and Toluca return from FIFA break as they face off against Estadio Olimpico Universitario

Pumas and Toluca return from FIFA hiatus to face each other in a tough game at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario Last time the Pumas had a tough game against their biggest rivals Club America while Toluca picked up a big home victory over Cruz Azul which earned interim coach Carlos Adrian Morales the job for the remainder of the season As both teams play at their normal time, it will be a tough game for both teams

Pumas have had a surprising season which has at times placed the team in first place and to be the last undefeated team in Liga MX Yet the season has seen a small slowdown as the Pumas failed to achieve a victory in of the last three games, including a home draw against struggling Necaxa The Pumas improved against America, however, where they took the lead twice and were able to maintain the tie even after falling to ten players. They will also benefit from the return of goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera, back after his service for the national team. They should also get Carlos Gonzalez and Nicolas Freire back if they pass their COVID-19 tests.However, Pumas need to improve in mistakes from previous games, especially the fact that in their last three fewer winning games, Pumas had a red card and played most of it with ten players Although Toluca did not have the best of the season, they come with a strong victory and this is the team that not only plays at home (12:00 p.m.) at the same time but plays in a city at a higher altitude, so the conditions will not hurt them as much as the other teams The pumas will have to come out prepared against them

Toluca’s season has been a disappointment Their poor record forced the team to fire coach Jose Manuel de la Torre and appoint Carlos Adrian Morales as interim coach Morales started incredibly with a solid 2-0 victory at home against Cruz Azul, second The victory was good enough that, although everything looked set for a return of former coach Hernan Cristante, team officials decided to stick with Morales So he is ready to show that it was the right decision and not a fluke Toluca looks set to improve and they will have the boost as striker Michael Estrada, who scored twice in the meeting of FIFA in a 4-2 World Cup qualifier against Uruguay Unfortunately for the Pumas it seems that they will face Toluca at the worst time

Pumas and Toluca should be a very even battle Pumas should be favored, but they are not as favored as they would be if they had played in September Toluca looks on the rise and Pumas needs to correct the mistakes, but they will benefit from the return of several key players, especially Alfredo Talavera as he takes on his former team for the first time. It should be an interesting coming but more difficult to predict than usual
