Fresh off of a solid win against Chivas (0W 0D 1L), Tijuana (1W 0D 0L) heads to the east to face Tigres UANL (1W 0D 0L) at El Volcán. Xolos have won twice in the historic stadium, back in 2015 and 2016, but matches from years past are often better at framing things than predicting them. Tigres has defeated León on the road as well as beating Santos in the Campeón de Campeones, while Xolos downed a bad Chivas side at home.

Xolos did make some headlines this week with the signing of Fabián Castillo. The Colombian winger comes to Tijuana from Turkish club Trabzonspor, although he only featured in 35 games for them over the past two years. Castillo will most likely not start against Tigres, but could be available off of the bench.

Tijuana’s defense will have their hands full against Tigres’ offensive juggernaut. To be fair they did well in shutting down Eduardo “La Chofis” López, Alan Pulido, and the rest of Chivas’ offense, but André-Pierre Gignac, Lucas Zelarayán, Guido Pizarro, and Tigres are a completely different beast.

Chivas was timid in attack, mounting some pressure in fits and starts while never looking too dangerous - let alone dominant. Tigres on the other hand is confident in the attack, able to sustain pressure and capitalize on mistakes. Xolos’ strength has been in their defense under Diego Cocca, and they’ll need to be at their best in order to be in contention to bring home points.
