Tigres hopes for a win against Necaxa, with an eye to the Playoffs

AGUASCALIENTES | Friday, April 7, 2017.- Tigres is arriving in Aguascalientes as a CONCACAF Champions League finalist, but with the mission of obtaining three points against Necaxa to keep their hopes of reaching the Playoffs alive, an objective for which there is no longer any margin of error.

The team obtained their ticket to the CONCACAF Final just this past Wednesday, and on Saturday they’ll be restarting their activities with a series of matches that will extend over the whole of April, to play a total of nine matches (6 Liga and 3 CONCACAF).

There are still 18 points in play in the Clausura 2017, and the minimum goal the felines need to reach to advance to the Playoffs can be translated into achieving between 12 and 14 points, for a total of 24 or 26 by the end of all 17 fixtures.

Tigres travelled direct from Vancouver on Wednesday night to Aguascalientes, arriving before dawn on Thursday, to give the team time to be rested enough to play a match that, at least on paper, doesn’t look very complicated given the Rayos’ position in the tournament, although historically the red and whites have been a team that gives their opponent a difficult time.

The positive news for the team is that the French player, André-Pierre Gignac, secured a goal in the second leg of the Semifinal in Vancouver, his first since Liga Day 8 when he scored against Morelia.

Necaxa was the sensation of the Apertura 2016, in which their amazing performance led them to the Playoffs in their first tournament back in the First Division. However, at the moment they are 17th in the Clausura 2017 with just two wins, four draws and five losses.

This Saturday’s match will be the 28th between the two sides since the creation of the short tournaments, and Tigres is hoping to achieve its tenth victory against a team that does better in the Universitario Stadium, but in Aguascalientes Tigres has snatched three victories.
