- Football - Mexico - Primera Division
From a very promising start of the season with 3 consecutive victories, to the other side of the coin with 5 matches without a victory, 2 of them defeats.
The team have fail on the defense as in that five matches have at least allowed a goal in every match. In last 10 matches just 2 times the team didn't allowed a goal, a scoreless draw against Toluca and a 1-0 victory against Monterrey.
The team should improve on defense a a lot, as on attack despite not being of the best, have scored one goal in 7 of their last 10 matches.
MF Edgar Pacheco doesn't seems to be really concentrated on the team as has been actively seeking a change of team, saying he will be glad to play in Chivas, and decline an offer from MLS side, Houston Dynamo.
Have not lost against Pumas since Apertura 2004.

With just one defeat in the tournament, Pumas UNAM have showed good play making together with good defense as with 11 goals allowed is the 4th best defense, together with the 3rd best offensive with 23 goals, the team is the leader of the competition.
This match could witness the return of Carlos Orrantia who was with Mexico U-20, which obtain the ticket for U-20 World Cup, expect him to enter the match as substitute.
On away, from 7 matches have won 4 and draw 2, with their lone defeat. being the 2nd best away team.
An interesting match is expected at Jalisco stadium, as Atlas due to the need of winning will push forward, meanwhile Pumas despite not being completely offensive, doesn't laid back on away, will put a good display.
Pumas UNAM should continue their good performance and will obtain at least a draw, their defense is of top order and also knows how to score, meanwhile Atlas seems to be lost as although the can score, their defense fails them.
