Team News: Club Tijuana
The Club Tijuana manager Ricardo Valiño has no fitness concerns to speak of before this game owing to a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Tigres
Tigres manager Diego Cocca has some current player fitness concerns. Raymundo Fulgencio (Mensical Laceration) and David Ayala (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) can’t be considered.
Here is a game where Club Tijuana could well find it tough to break down this Tigres de la UANL team who we think will be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a good tussle with a 0-1 advantage for Tigres de la UANL when the referee blows for full-time.
We’ll see what happens.
