1-2-1 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Pumas UNAM when playing away games on artifical turf, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has grass). Their goal statistics from those four matches are 2-2 (scored/conceded).

As the visiting team in Liga MX matches, Pumas UNAM have produced an overall stat of 3-4-1 so far.
