The soccer tournament it´s just beginning, that´s a fact, but Pumas has the right to an illusion. The old “Mexican king” has everything in their path to conquer la Liga Mx.
One of the main reasons for Pumas being the main tournament leader is not related to the game, it´s because of their financial situation. They´ve invested in players with experience for the first time in many years. In the Opening 2017, Pumas had an irremediable destiny towards the last place. Now, a year later, he has been leading for three consecutive days. Things have changed radically.
As we know the Mexican soccer tournament (Liga Mx) it´s just beginning but Pumas is, again, the leader and this time they may have succeeded, “the old emperor” who defeats Real Madrid once, and who was twice continuous the champion, has the main opportunity to redemption and to show all it´s fans what are they capable of.
The Auriazules are currently the best offense, a statistic that also places them as the general leader of the competition. In addition, these may have been marked by six different players. However, they still have a long way to go if they want to beat the most goals in a short tournament for National University, the ‘Fantastic Four’.
The 2015 Apertura had several positive marks for the Pumas, one of them was the most goals in a short tournament of 17 days. On that occasion, the capital was the best offense of the contest with 37 entries in favor. His best game was on date four when they beat the Atlas 5-0 on the field of the Estadio Olimpico Universitario on August 12, 2015.
About the next game on August 25, Pumas’ ambitions in this tournament go much further than beating America later this month, but it would be a lie to say that victory in that match is not one of the goals. Deafeting America is the main goal for Pumas too, it´s a personal issue and a huge achievement.
Pumas has had a meteoric start to the tournament and although the illusions are high, no victory in the tournament knows better than the one that is wrested from a defeated America.
It´s a long way but it´s a strong team.
