Puebla vs Chivas: Storylines and Head-To-Head
Puebla reached important stages last season, surprising Monterrey in the play-in game that sent them to the last-8 round. The team would clash with León, who had a hard time beating them. This year they expect to have better performance and this game will be the best way to start strong.
Chivas, curiously, also faced León in the 2020 Liga MX playoffs. Guadalajara reached the semi-finals of the tournament and fought until the end to beat León.
