Puebla have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1000 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

These are active days for the team playing at home, as they were in action only three days ago in the Liga MX. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Santos Laguna.
