Tigres is travelling to Pachuca focusing on the three points #ELFUTBOLTEMUEVE

PACHUCA | Saturday, April 9, 2016.- After reaching the Final of the Concacaf Champions League and ending their winless streak, Tigres travelled to Pachuca to face the Tuzos on Day 13, and drive their upturn in the League (Liga MX) in order to improve their position in the General Table.

The felines haven’t won the last four consecutive games in the League, with one defeat and three draws, leaving them seventh place. A triumph at the Hidalgo stadium could move them up to fourth position. However, the Hidalgo team is currently in third place, five units away from Tigres with 22 points.

At the moment, in the last six matches between Tigres and Tuzos, the team led by Ricardo Ferretti hasn’t lost, having drawn three and won three. In fact, the last game between them ended 2-1 thanks to goals by André-Pierre Gignac.

It must be said that since 2010, if there has been any player who has got under Pachuca’s skin, it’s the Chilean Héctor Mancilla, who, in three consecutive tournaments, has scored six goals against them, the highest scorer against this Saturday’s opponent.

A tie is most common result in the 43-match record between these two teams, with 18 draws, 14 triumphs for the felines and 11 for Hidalgo, and a similar goal total, 65 over 63, displaying a slight advantage for the team from northern Mexico.

One of Pachuca’s strengths is that throughout the 2016 Winter Tournament (Clausura), the team has been characterized by having the best offense, with 26 goals, and the best defense, with just 12 goals against. Nevertheless, even though they have scored the most goals as a team, the highest goal scorer of the tournament is the feline’s Gignac with 9 to his name.

This match is of utmost importance for the felines, since, historically, at Pachuca, they have won just three times out of 21 matches. So, this Saturday is precisely the right moment for them to achieve their fourth victory in the Tuzos’ stadium and their fifth in the tournament.
