Not letting more points slip away

After having a good start in the first two matchdays, but in the following two they ended up losing, something that worries the university strategist, stating that before the first two victories they were not the best team and now they are not the worst.

"What I take away with me is that we were not a super team, nor are we now the worst, we are a team that knows well what it has to do and what it does not have to do. Now we have to redirect the path, find again what we had, we need to be very lucid, attentive, focused and work to correct the mistakes we made, we must choose the best 11 and then return to the forms. The players I have are very good and we have to push a little bit to be what we were".

20 matches against Pumas

Five months ago Miguel Mejía Barón arrived at the university, since then the team has been doing well and they are about to play their 20th game since the doctor has been in charge. On September 7, he took over the board of directors after the departure of Jesús Ramírez, having won 9, tied 5 and lost 5 of 19 matches.
1:01 PM3 months ago

Dinenno's drought

It has been two years since the striker joined Pumas, he soon became a reference in the attack, the 2020 Clausura was suspended due to health issues, playing only 2 matches and scoring 4 goals.
In Guardianes 2020 he scored 10 goals and was second in the scoring table, for Guardianes 2021, he scored four goals and the following tournament (Apertura 2021) he scored five, his level dropped as time went by and the fans began to demonstrate.
12:56 PM3 months ago

Thirst for victory

The universitarios have just lost in matchday 3 and 4 against Tigres and Xolos, respectively, scoring one goal in those games, which is starting to make a dent, receiving a lot of criticism for their poor performance, dropping 6 points out of 12.
The emeralds have not had a good start either, obtaining 5 points, having offensive problems since the beginning of the tournament, scoring only on 4 occasions and have not won away, so this Sunday they will try to reverse their situation.
12:51 PM3 months ago

They do not receive merit

Favio Álvarez, as well as the rest of the team, has full confidence in achieving important things at the end of the semester. He said that he has full confidence in his teammates, because in difficult moments they have shown character.
"This team has shown it, I fully trust my teammates, I trust the coaching staff. This team has shown many proofs of character everywhere, in difficult matches the team showed what it is capable of doing."
"We are used to getting literally killed every time. They never give us credit, we have won very important matches, we showed hierarchy and every time we win those matches the fault is because the rival team is not well."
12:46 PM3 months ago

The altitude is psychological

The reinforcement of the Emeralds, Fede Martínez, mentioned that he has already adapted to the altitude of León, saying that he is ready to play minutes against Pumas in their stadium, adding that the altitude of Mexico City is a psychological issue.
He emphasized that he feels good, that the altitude of León has not affected him and hopes that the altitude will not influence him, concluding that the universitarios will go all out and take advantage of the fact that they are local.

You don't go back to the same thing

Pumas defender Efraín Velarde was asked about the after-effects of Covid-19, about how he experienced it, since he suffered from the disease a few weeks ago, acknowledging that it is complicated to return to training. 

"We have all gone through this stage and most of us are left with some after-effects that, in one way or another, affect performance and it is not the same; it happened to me in the first few days, where it is more difficult to recover," he said, to continue with details he has learned about the consequences of contracting the virus.

Watch out for this Pumas player

Juan Ignacio Dinenno has not had a good start to the tournament and is looking to recover his level for this tournament and Pumas is still waiting for him. Between suspensions and injuries, the striker is still not the important player that the university team is used to, playing only 106 minutes and in two games, starting one as a starter, scoring 7 goals in 23 matches.

Watch out for this León player

Ángel Mena in doubt

El León will continue to wait for the return of Ángel Mena due to his left knee injury, which has not allowed him to return to Ariel Holan's training sessions, so he is likely to miss the match against the universitarios. On January 24 he reported an injury to the collateral ligament of his left knee.

Improve their effectiveness

Efraín Velarde spoke prior to this Sunday's match, stating that in order to obtain the three points at the Olímpico Universitario, they will have to improve in terms of both their attacking and defensive performance. 

"Statistics are numbers and they are there to be broken, it's something we don't have to think about, we must focus on returning to the good performance we had at the start of the tournament and get back to winning ways at home and with our people. In both the match against Tigres and Xolos we could have had a better result, unfortunately we let opportunities slip away, so we have to improve in all areas, up front and at the back, always maintaining our strengths and making as few mistakes as possible so that the matches go in our favor and we stay at the top of the general table".
