Tigres wants to recover lost ground in the General Table

PUEBLA | Friday, March 18, 2016.- The 2016 Winter Tournament is entering the final phase and Tigres needs three points in order to remain in the playoff classification zone and, to do so, they will be travelling to Puebla to come out onto the Cuauhtémoc Stadium’s pitch and fight for their fifth victory in the tournament.

Tigres is currently in sixth place in the General Table with 15 points, which represents a 50% effectiveness in the ten games played, but with just a one-point difference over the Camoteros, who are in ninth place, so triumph is a vital factor in the felines’ aspirations.

Ricardo Ferretti’s team is one of the best in the tournament in the defensive area, with a total of 11 goals received, but sixth in the offense with 17 goals, 8 of which are the work of the 2016 Winter Tournament’s top individual scorer, André-Pierre Gignac.

Even though the Puebla team hasn’t lost the four most recent matches in the League, the last three have been draws, while the felines have achieved only five points in the last 15 matches played. Nevertheless, they are only three points behind third place in the General Table.

Of the last six Tigres vs Puebla matches, the felines have lost just one, won three and drawn two, leaving them with a positive balance against La Franja.

An interesting fact for this game is that in the last tournament, in which Tigres were Champions, before the fixture against Puebla on Day 11, the felines had 16 points, just one more than their current total.
