How Did Pumas and Necaxa Get Here?
Necaxa has had a very low-performance tournament, in which they are at the bottom of the classification table. They are trying to survive and achieve one last objective this season, which is to reach the playoffs that could qualify them for the next Liguilla. In addition, with the incorporation of the new technical director Guillermo Vazquez, the players have gained some confidence and inspiration, which is why we have observed an extremely notable improvement in their game played against Juarez which they won 1-0. While it is true that the result was tight, the mood on the field gave the team new hope. Their last match in this tournament was a defeat against America 2-1.

Pumas comes from a similar situation. Throughout the championship, they have been in constant ups and downs, so their position at the table is not ideal. As they are very few points away from the playoff spots for the possible classification to Liguilla, their performance in the remaining games of the LIGA MX – Guard1anes 2021 tournament has to be impeccable. Pumas comes from tying their last game against Pachuca at the last minute. The felines were losing 0-2 when at minute 90 Sebastian Saucedo brought them closer to the scoreboard, and at minute 90 + 4, Juan Ignacio Dinenno equalized the actions through a maximum penalty.
