Pumas UNAM achieved an important victory against Necaxa this Friday at the start of Day 14 of the Clausura 2021 of the Liga MX, because with this the University students reached 16 points, placing themselves in tenth place in the General Table of Positions, lighting the hope of a possible qualification to the Repechage, although it seems difficult that they remain in the orange zone at the end of this date.
With 16 points, Pumas was ahead of Tigres (15 points), Pachuca (14 points), Gallos (14 points), Mazatlán (14 points) and Chivas (13 points), all with the possibility of reaching it on this date, as no they've played their matches, and in the case of Tigres and Chivas, with one more match pending.
The Auriazul team will have a key game in their aspirations to qualify for the Playoffs on the next Matchday 15, when they host the UANL Tigres at the Olympic Stadium, a rival who by then will have already played their pending matches; first against América and then against FC Juárez in the middle of the week.
The closing of the tournament looks complicated for the team led by Lillini, because in addition to the Tigers, he has to visit a well-worked Puebla and receive a visit from dangerous America.
The winning goal
The match held at the Victoria stadium, in Aguascalientes, was developed with marked parity, until near the end the visiting team unbalanced it through the midfielder Juan Pablo Vigón (36 minutes into the second half). Pumas featured striker Juan Ignacio Dinenno (former Racing Club, Temperley and Aldosivi) and defender Nicolás Freire (former Argentins Juniors); while the forward Favio Alvarez (former Atlético Tucumán) entered the second half.
