Opening 2022: Pumas was saved from being cellared thanks to Puebla

Pumas flirted with the last place in Apertura 2022, but La Franja tied Gallos Blancos in the 75th minute

Cougars was saved from sleeping in the basement of the general board of the Opening 2022 after the tie between Querétaro White Roosters and Puebla at the start of Day 12 of the MX League. The locals could not maintain the advantage against La Franja and, with that, the university students got rid of last place.

The set of Andres Lillini They still have their match pending this weekend when they visit the two-time champion Atlas on Saturday night at the Jalisco Stadium, but, for now, one of the teams that made the most noise in the transfer market, flirted for a few minutes with the last place of Opening 2022.

The university students of Pedregal, with 11 games to date in which they have only been able to add nine points, appear in penultimate place by a difference of -9, while Atlas, curiously their rival this Saturday, appears with the same units but a “better” difference with -7. In the event that these teams draw over the weekend, both will remain in the crosshairs of white roosters and of the last place in the day that will be disputed in the middle of the week.

Andres Lillini and his team, which includes players like Dani Alves and Eduardo ‘Toto’ Salvio, have played eight consecutive games of MX League without knowing the victory, a streak in which they have four defeats and the same number of draws, which has condemned them to last places in the general table in the Opening 2022.

Cougars was emerging as one of the protagonists with the incorporation of six footballers, including the two mentioned above, but in recent times the board headed by Engineer Leopoldo Silva and Miguel Mejía Barón has already come out to give the vote of confidence to Andres Lilliniparticularly after 0-3 losses at the Estadio Olímpico Universitario to América, another 1-5 loss at the hands of Santos Laguna at home and their most recent result (1-3 loss against Chivas) last weekend in Guadalajara.

Cougars He must beat Atlas to get out of penultimate place, end his bad moment and, in case of beating a two-time champion far from his best level, he could even beat teams like Cruz Azul and Mazatlán, depending on their results.
