Tigres hopes to remain unbeaten and maintain their leadership against Chivas

GUADALAJARA | Tuesday, September 20, 2016.- There’s no rest in the Mexican League (Liga MX). Tigres just became the General Leaders of the 2016 Summer Tournament (Apertura) this weekend and then straight away this Tuesday they’re travelling to Jalisco to play against Chivas, seeking to consolidate their top spot and continue to be undefeated in this tournament.

The felines haven’t tasted defeat in this tournament. In nine matches they’ve achieved five victories and four draws, giving them a total of 19 points, which have placed them at the top of the Apertura 2016, just one point ahead of the Tijuana Xolos. Incidentally, in the 2013 Winter Tournament (Clausura), Tigres remained undefeated until Day 13, with a balance of eight wins and five ties, a statistic that could be surpassed this season.

In the last ten matches against the Rebaño, a draw has been the dominant score, since this result was achieved six times, together with two victories each for both teams.

Tigres hasn’t lost in the last seven matches between them: with one victory and half a dozen draws, including one score of 3-3, two of 2-2, one of 1-1 and two goalless ties.

Jürgen Damm is still unable to play for the felines after being hospitalized for an infection, while Luis Quiñones is still recovering from an injury. Even though these two players returned to the training sessions at the weekend, the technical staff thought it was better not to put them at risk.

Once this match is over, the felines will immediately return to San Nicolás de los Garza to start preparing for their weekend home game against Cruz Azul.
