Puebla vs Tigres UANL 2018 – Watch Live, Schedule, Preview January 5, 2018
The Clausura 2018 of the Liga MX is finally upon us and what better way to begin the season than with Tigres UANL, the reigning Apertura 2017 champion. This Friday, January 5, 2018 (5:00 PM Pacific), Puebla will host Tigres at the Estadio Cuauhtemoc in what will mark the beginning of another year in Mexican soccer.
Puebla had a below average Apertura 2017 season where they earned a total of 16 points and finished in 15th place. The team coached Enrique Meza will have an incredibly important season ahead of them as they face the potential of relegation into the Ascenso MX. With one season left to decide the team to be demoted, the ‘camoteros’ sit in 16th place of the relegation table, 13 points ahead of Veracruz.
To prepare for the upcoming season, Puebla made some significant signings like that of Jorge ‘Chaton’ Enriquez from Santos Laguna, and Alejandro Chumacero from The Strongest, among others. Nonetheless, ‘la franja’ will face one of the most difficukt opponents in Tigres on Friday, and the most likely result will be a negative result to begin their season.
Tigres UANL had a tremendous 2017 year which saw them earn the Apertura 2017 championship against their arch rivals Monterrey. The team coached by Ricardo Ferretti is ready for the new season, and they hope to have the same success as they did in 2017. Considering the strong depth in their squad, plus their short amount of off season, the ‘auriazules’ have not made any significant signings apart from Arley Rodriguez who joins from Colombia’s Atletico Nacional.
