In that match, Club Tijuana managed 64% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Atlas got 21 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. Renato Ibarra (11') was the scorer for Atlas.
It has been all too rare in recent games that Club Tijuana have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Xoloitzcuintles have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 8 goals in the process. We will just have to find out if that trend can be sustained in this game.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Puebla in Liga MX (Clausura) competition, Mazatlán will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, Mazatlán managed 40% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Mazatlán was Augusto (16'). Puebla got 19 attempts at goal with 8 on target. Santiago Ormeño (45'), Salvador Reyes (64') and Maximiliano Araújo (72') scored for Puebla.
The numbers tell their own story, and Mazatlán have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 7 goals in total. In defence, Mazatlán have not been doing too well.

Team News: Mazatlán
Due to a completely injury-free group available for selection, Mazatlán manager Tomás Boy does not have any fitness worries to report before this match. Nicolás Vikonis is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We’re envisaging that Mazatlán might need a bit of good fortune to breach the defence of this Club Tijuana lineup who will likely end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought 1-0 winning margin for Club Tijuana at the end of the 90 minutes.
