Pumas enjoying hot start but have long road ahead for Apertura success

The Mexico City club opened the season with two victories, but a visit from reigning champion Tigres on Sunday will be the toughest match yet

Pumas are two for two, but the real tests start arriving this week.

Goals from summer arrival Juan Pablo Vigon and veteran midfielder Pablo Barrera helped the team notch a 2-0 win over Necaxa last weekend, a result that kept Pumas perfect through the first two weeks of the season under new manager Michel.

While the club is enjoying the strong start, it also knows Sunday's visit from Tigres brings by far the biggest challenge of the season. Pumas started hot, but its goals go way beyond Jornada 2.
