May 4, 2020

The start of Pumas UNAM in this Clausura was a real storm, the team squandered football and even managed to be the undefeated leader for several weeks, but that carousel that was shot towards the sky, it seems that now it comes in free fall and no brake. Pumas remained six games undefeated, but match seven was the trigger for now indicating that Pumas adds four matches without getting the W.

Pumas de la UNAM – Analysis of the Clausura 2020

With the start of the team, it was expected that, by this date, the UNAM would be at least in position two of the championship, showing quality in their game, but the bitterness of the moment now is what abounds in the university campus.

Of the few teams that can benefit from the suspension of the tournament, it is undoubtedly Pumas UNAM, lowering the level of stress that was surrounding the institution, as well as doing an introspective to improve in the face of closure, will be key for the team in this break obliged.

Pumas got four of his last 15 points, now they live off the residues of the first six matches, however, these savings they had are gone so the tournament is uphill.

The team continues in classification positions with 15 units, but two points separate them from the thirteenth position that belongs to Atlético San Luis, for these reasons, if Pumas does not raise its head, it could be seen as in the Apertura, where the team did not agree to the league.

Pumas has a huge debt as a visitor, in this tournament they have played away five times, gathering five points, after a victory and two draws, where they scored nine times, but received 13, which without hesitation is one of the weaknesses.

The keys to Pumas

Pumas UNAM is a traditional team, its structure or muscle under which the institution supports, makes it one of the most followed teams in Mexican soccer, but its tradition is not reflected in the titles that the team achieves.

Pumas already has 15 years without being crowned as Mexican soccer champion. The last title held by the institution was in 2005, where they managed to win on penalties against Tigres.

The start of this Clausura was a sign that the team has the ability to make the leap in quality in Liga MX.

The team is lacking confidence right now, the quality of their squad is there and they need to realize that, they must resume the path of the first six games, to have a classification without problems.

Pumas is currently in the sixth place of the contest with 15 points, seven units separate it from Cruz Azul who is first, but a difference of one point is what separates the team from being out of the Liguilla round.

The path of Pumas in the Clausura

Pumas has one of the most accessible calendars of the teams that fight to be among the first eight of the Clausura.

The UNAM will have four of their last seven games at home, of these four matches, two games are against rivals who are out of the classification positions and are rivals who are leaving doubts in their actions.

Pumas receives Tijuana, Puebla, who on paper are accessible rivals, while will receive Chivas and Querétaro in what must  will undoubtedly be life and death games.

The team completes the calendar with three visits, against leader Cruz Azul, which is the most complex game of the seven they will play, while they travel to Jalisco to face the Atlas and visit Necaxa in Aguascalientes.

Pumas UNAM Possibilities

The UNAM need ten points to be at the gates of the classification and with twelve of the 21 to dispute the classification would be almost imminent. The team needs to win in all their home games, to have the tranquility that the club needs, after four adverse results in recent days.

The game against Cruz Azul given the level of the leaders, we can already mark it as a defeat, so a point, even if it is, is beneficial for the university students.

The games with Tijuana and Puebla are an obligation for the team, in addition to minimizing the tie against Querétaro.

If we base the odds with the reality of the tournament, Pumas would add three against Tijuana, Puebla and Atlas, that would give the team nine points added to its current 15 Pumas would be at 24, would need the victory against Necaxa as a visitor, to have the possibility not to score with Chivas and Cruz Azul, to reach the 27 points that was the magic number in the opening.
