Club Santos vs Atlas Liga MX Preview

Santos Laguna will be looking to extend their unbeaten run from eight games to nine this Friday against Atlas. Santos will be hosting Atlas at the Estadio Nuevo Corona in Torreon Mexico Friday the 20th of February. Currently both sides sit equal on points with 10 points, although Atlas are in 6th and Santos 4th. The difference between Santos and Atlas is their goal differential. Atlas have an equal number of goals scored and goals allowed to their difference, eight. Santos have outscored their opponents in Liga MX table by three goals; nine goals scored to six goals allowed.


Los Verdiblancos (the Green-and-whites) will be coming into this match against Atlas on a "high" note after defeating Atletico San Luis 3-0 at the Estadio Nuevo Corona. The last occasion that Santos dropped points occurred recently in Toluca. Diego Gonzalez was able to salvage a draw for Santos in the dying stages of the match. The last time Santos were defeated came in the beginning of the season when they were visiting Mexico City and were defeated 1-0 by Cruz Azul.


Atlas on the other hand has been enduring a rough run of form since their last victory back on the 17th of January against Morelia, 2-1. Atlas recently was defeated in their Copa Libertadores match against Colombian side Santa Fe, 0-1. The lost to the Colombians at the Estadio Jalisco in Mexico added to the woes of Atlas and their supporters during this month of February. Los Zorros really need something out of this tie against Santos especially since they will be traveling to Southeastern Brazil in their other Copa Libertadores match against Atletico Mineiro.


Los Laguneros (The Harriers) should in fact see three points easily in this match against Atlas. The last 11 occasions these two sides have met, Santos have won seven, tied three and were defeated by Los Zorros on one occasion. Here is a little piece of frivolous information, the last time Atlas defeated Santos was almost a year from Friday at the Estadio Nuevo Corona, 3-2.

New Puma EvoPowers and EvoSpeeds
The brand new Puma EvoPower 1.2 Firm Ground cleats
New Puma EvoPowers and EvoSpeeds


The Transfer deadline day has made this Monday as chaotic and pressing for those who closely follow football at the club level. Today the good people at Puma have finally released to purchase in stores the brand new EvoPowers and a new color to the EvoSpeeds. The new EvoPower 1.2 FG boot boasts the new generation technology that aids the boot in generating more power and accuracy to ones kick.


Along with the EvoPowers Puma also released a new color scheme to their much-boasted EvoSpeeds 1.3 cleats. The boot will be kicking out the winter months mixing bright plasma, white and peacoat. The EvoSpeeds now have a bright look that will put ones opposition in awe of the bright color scheme to go along with ones speed and agility on the pitch.


One of the stand out players that sports Puma boots on the pitch is one of Chelsea’s high prized midfield generals, Cesc Fabregas. When Cesc was asked about how he feels about the boot he praised the boot for being one of the most comfortable boots “he has ever worn.” The Chelsea number four was asked also about if the boot has improved since its last release. Fabregas emphasized on how the cleats are “lighter now and your touch is even better now.” Finally the Spanish midfielder was asked about what attribute he sees to be most important accuracy or power and which he would consider himself more, a powerful player or accurate player.

Fabregas stated “both are very important, but I believe more in accuracy because the power is more about how physically strong you are, and accuracy is about the technical ability that you have. So, I personally believe more in accuracy. I am definitely an accuracy player.”


Puma also released with these boots a short film was posted to YouTube with both Cesc Fabregas and Mario Balotelli sporting the EvoPowers and its attributes to their game.


Coming soon will be thorough account of the boots…..
