SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Saturday 25, 2017.- Tigres partly recovered lost ground in the 2017 Winter Tournament (Clausura) with a valiant away victory last week, and now, this Saturday at home, they seek to maintain this pace and win three valuable points as hosts to the Morelia Monarcas.
So far, the felines have a total of 7 points, positioning them for now in 13th place in the tournament. However, a win would allow them to climb up the table and bring them closer to the qualification zone, which, at this point, is just three points away.
The team managed by Ricardo Ferretti had just a couple of days to prepare for Day 8 after playing the first leg of the CONCACAF Championship Quarter Final midweek.
Tigres is ranked 13th in the Clausura, and Morelia 12th, with just one point separating the two sides, though the Monarcas urgently need more points since they are at risk, being positioned at the bottom of the relegation table, while the felines have the second-best performance in the last six Liga tournaments.
In the 76 past matches played against Morelia, Tigres has won 32, drawn 16 and lost 28. At home, the San Nicolás de los Garza side is the stronger of the two, with 22 victories in 37 games, and just 6 defeats and 9 ties.
In the last five matches, the felines have won four and lost just one, reflecting the advantage of Ricardo Ferretti’s players.
