In the game prior to this, Club Tijuana drew 0-0 in the Liga MX (Apertura) tie with CD Guadalajara.
In that match, Club Tijuana had 50% possession and 4 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. On the other side, CD Guadalajara had 5 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target.
The numbers tell their own story, and Club Tijuana have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 8 goals overall. In defence, Xoloitzcuintles have not been doing too well. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this next game, though.
Their prior results show that Club Tijuana:
- have not beaten Santos Laguna when they've played them away from home in the last 3 league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 9 league games. What a terrible run of away results.

Team News: Santos Laguna
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the sole fitness concern for the Santos Laguna boss Guillermo Almada to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group of players. Brian Lozano (Tibia and Fibula Fracture) will miss out.
Team News: Club Tijuana
Thanks to a fully healthy squad to choose from, Club Tijuana boss Pablo Guede has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match.
In this game, Club Tijuana should be able to score against this Santos Laguna side, although that probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
Our selection here is for a narrow 2-1 winning margin for Santos Laguna when all is said and done. Looking forward to this.
