The stats tell the story, and Club Tijuana have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 7 goals in total. Defensively, Xoloitzcuintles can certainly do much better. With no two games being the same, we must now wait to see if that pattern shall be replicated in this next game or not.
Coming into this meeting, Club Tijuana are without a win away from home in their last 10 league matches. Who knows how long it might last, too.

With a completely healthy squad to pick from, Club Tijuana boss Pablo Guede does not have any fitness worries to report before this match.
We envisage that Club Tijuana are capable enough to break down this Necaxa lineup, but it is unlikely to be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We think that it’s going to be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Necaxa at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
