After a somewhat insipid debut by both clubs, the UANL Tigers and the red and black of the Atlas will meet this Saturday in Nuevo León in search of their first victory during the second date of the Cup for Mexico.
The main attraction of the duel will be the reunion of Diego Cocca with the team to which he managed to give the first two-time championship in its history after his departure just at the Opening 2022.
How do they get there?
Little by little, the Felines began to get into rhythm and proof of this was in the first match where they could not get past the scoreless draw against the Cañoneros.
Among the most important news of the week were the official announcement of Fernando Gorriaran as a new reinforcement, coming from Santos, and the DT announced the loss of Jordy Caicedowho had just arrived at the institution a few months ago.

In fact, the helmsman himself highlighted the creation of this friendly championship because it will make it easier for all the clubs to get up to speed and reach the Clausura 2023 in the best way.
“It seems ideal to me, I am of the idea that the more preseason games we have, the more we do the exercise of taking the rhythm of the real game, face to face with rivals from the League. It seems positive to me, it gives seriousness to our preseason and that of our rivals and brings us closer to optimum performance, ”he declared.
