Chivas suffered a 3-0 defeat at Xolos de Tijuana on Friday. The Rebaño came into this match with a majority reserve side ahead of their CONCACAF Champions League Final clash against Toronto FC.
Xolos took an early lead after just seven minutes when a penalty was called for an apparent handball.
Gustavo Bou then scored the second goal of the night with another penalty in the 41st minute.
Although both penalty calls created a bit of controversy. it was no fault of the “Fronterizos” who took a deserved lead into the half.
Xolos eventually added to Chivas’ misery in the second period. With nobody but the goalkeeper to beat, Rubio Rubin scored into an empty net to make the final scoreline 3-0 in favor of Tijuana.
A Liguilla place now appears to be out of reach for Chivas, who will visit Toronto FC this Tuesday in the first leg of CONCACAF Champions League Final. Meanwhile, Xolos moved up to seventh in the league table and remain in the race for a place in “Fiesta Grande”.
