The entertaining Morelia vs Xolos match will be played this Saturday, October 27, 2012 (8:00 PM EDT) at the Estadio Morelos. In one of the best games of the week, Monarcas and Club Tijuana face-off in a game that could put each team closer to a playoff spot if they were to win. While Morelia is currently in 5th place with 22 points, it needs two more wins in what is it left of the season to secure the playoffs. On the other hand, Xolos has not confirmed its qualification, but they will attempt to win in Morelia to secure a much desired Copa Libertadores spot.
Morelia is back on track to fight for a top-8 position in the Liga MX. Their season has been filled with up-and-downs, and although their play has not been of the highest quality, they have managed to be on a current six game lose less streak. On Saturday they face one of the league’s best, and toughest opponents when they play 2nd place Tijuana. It will be a match in which both squads will play defensively, but Monarcas has the most pressure to win; one because they are deep in the playoff fight, and two because they are at home.
Meanwhile, Club Tijuana is still managing to prolong a streak of twelve games without a loss, and a win in Morelia not only secures they a playoff seed, but also puts them a hair away from their first ever international competition; the Copa Libertadores. Xolos has played well week-after-week, and there are no signs that this will end any time soon. If they keep their style of game, then it should be no problem to at least come out with a tie from Morelia.
Prediction: There will be an exciting match between two great clubs at the Estadio Morelos. The Morelia vs Xolos match is important because both teams have the ‘liguilla’ or the Copa Libertadores on the line. A tight match, the final score will be Monarcas 1-1 Club Tijuana.
Television: The Morelia vs Xolos of Tijuana match will be shown this Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 8:00 PM EDT on Azteca America.
