Querétaro (4W 3D 5L) and Tijuana (5W 4D 3L) are going back in time to Week 10 to play the match that was missed due to the referee’s strike.
Los Gallos Blancos have lost three of their last four Liga MX matches and are currently on the outside looking in for the Liguilla. The issue with Querétaro is that they don’t excel at any one thing - their offense is tied for seventh in goals scored and their defense is tenth in goals allowed. Neither are terrible, but Querétaro has to find a direction to head in.
Xolos may look to put up a lineup similar to what we saw in the Copa MX tournaent, with guys like Juan Martín Lucero, Amando Moreno, and Henry Martín getting minutes to rest guys ahead of their trip to Tuxtla Gutiérrez to face off against Jaguares. It’s lucky in some respects that Xolos have to stop in Querétaro before heading to Chiapas, breaking up the longest away trip in Liga MX. It will be interesting to see if Michael Orozco is in the game day 18, as he suffered an injury early in the match against Club América last week and had to leave the game.
