Puebla vs León: Club León head to Puebla for a big Liga MX game on Friday night. Ignacio Ambríz’s men have scored and conceded in their last seven games, making them the great entertainers of the Apertura championship. León won 4-2 away high-flying Necaxa last weekend. It then drew 1-1 at home against Atlas. It has lost just once all season, and it is up to third in the table. León has scored in nine out of 10 Apertura games so far, but it has only kept two clean sheets. Forwards José Juan Macias, Ismael Sosa and Angel Mena are all in superb form.
Puebla is another entertaining team to watch. It has scored 11 goals in 10 games so far this season. It has also conceded 21, and its leaky defense has left it marooned in 17th in the table. It picked up a crucial 1-0 win away at Tigres on Wednesday. However, that was its only clean sheet of the season, and it is unlikely to resist León’s stellar offense on Friday. Yet Lucas Cavallini is in excellent form, and Puebla could hurt León in this game.
