After a pair of crushing defeats, could Landon Donovan be on his way to help turn things around for La Fiera?

Coming off back-to-back heavy defeats, Leon looks to right the ship on Saturday at home against Puebla.

Gustavo Díaz's side fell 4-0 to Necaxa two weekends ago before Monterrey destroyed Leon 5-1 last weekend. 

Puebla, meanwhile, is off to a strong start in the Liga MX Clausura, sitting in sixth place after last weekend's 2-0 win over Chivas. 

Leon could be boosted by the long-awaited debut of Landon Donovan, who signed with the club last month but has yet to make his first appearance for La Fiera.

MATCH PREVIEW


William Yarbrough, Club Leon

After finishing dead last in the Liga MX Apertura, Puebla has started out the Clausura on a much more positive note.

La Franja won just four of their 17 games last tournament, but manager Enrique Meza has already led his side to three victories in just five matches in the Clausura.

Meza's charges will face a wounded Leon side at the Estadio Leon, with La Fiera losing their last two league matches by a combined score of 9-1.

The home side could be boosted by a pair of debutants from north of the border.

Giles Barnes, an Englishman who represents Jamaica internationally, spent the past five seasons in MLS and is nearing the fitness required to make his debut.

And American legend Landon Donovan is also nearing full fitness and could make his long-awaited Leon bow on Saturday night against La Franja. 

Both teams had Copa MX fixtures to deal with in midweek, so whichever side has the better early-season fitness could end up with a massive edge at the Estadio Leon.
