Get ready for the wolf howl.

Club Tijuana (4W 4D 6L) are coming off of a tumultuous week, losing at home 1-0 to UNAM Pumas (7W 5D 2L) and parting ways with manager Diego Cocca. They’ll head to Puebla to face Lobos BUAP (3W 4D 7L) in the late late game on Saturday at Estadio Universitario BUAP, where every stoppage in play is marked with said wolf howl.

Interim manager Franky Oviedo inherits a team that is winless in their last four and that sits tied with Atlas (2W 3D 9L) for fewest goals scored (10) in Liga MX. Atlas didn’t score a goal in their first seven games.

With Oviedo an unknown quantity, it remains to be seen whether he sticks with Cocca’s setup or decides to get experimental. Whether he chooses to embrace or eschew the current system, he can hardly be blamed either way.

The good news for Xolos is that they’ll be facing a Lobos side that has given up 22 goals so far this season. Only the aforementioned Atlas (24) and Veracruz (2W 3D 9L, 32 goals conceded) have given up more. Under manager Francisco “Paco” Palencia, Lobos have even managed to keep above Veracruz in the relegation table, although they know they’ll need to pick up points in order to avoid the drop (or at least buying their way out of it).
