Tigres, with the goal of scoring and winning
SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Saturday, April 2, 2016.- The game against the Atlas Zorros offers an opportunity for Tigres to fight for the top positions in the General Table and get back on track toward triumph and goals, something they have been denied in the last three matches of the 2016 Winter Tournament (Clausura).
The felines are coming to the game in seventh place in the tournament, with 16 points and the need to win again, something they haven’t done since day 8, when they beat the América Águilas 4-1 in the Universitario Stadium, the same day from which they haven’t been able to recover the offensive memory.
While the conditions of the rival for fixture 12 aren’t very positive eithersince the Zorros are in the penultimate place on the Table with just 8 points and a losing streak of four matches.
Of the last 11 matches between these two teams, Atlas has achieved just one victory and the felines 6, showing the clear dominance of the team from San Nicolás, which also allowed 4 draws.
In the most recent match, Tigres triumphed 1-0 over the black and reds in the Jalisco Stadium, with a goal by Jürgen Damm, in the 2015 Summer Tournament (Apertura). Coincidentally, the felines were also in seventh place on the General Table when they played that game, while the Zorros were in twelfth.
Tigres has got back several of its injured players for this game, Jorge Torres Nilo, Israel Jiménez, Jesús Dueñas and Jürgen Damm, who are now able to play and were called up to the line-up for the match against the Guadalajara team. However, José Rivas, Rafael Sobis and Fernando Fernández will be unavailable.
