The Xolos Tijuana vs Santos match will take place on Saturday, April 6, 2013 (9:00 PM PT) at the Estadio Caliente. The Week 13 Clausura 2013 match features Xolos of Tijuana who is on a terrible winless streak, and who last week lost 1-0 against Toluca. Santos Laguna is currently the 4th best team in the Liga MX, and last week they tied 1-1 against Queretaro.
Xolos of Tijuana wants to fight for a spot in the Clausura 2013 playoffs. To do this, they cannot afford to miss any more points, as they currently lay one seed away from the ‘liguilla’ with only 17 points. Out of the last 7 games this team has played in the Liga MX, they have only won 1, while tying 2. Xolos needs to retain that hegemony they had last season at home when they were league champions, however, this needs to come by fast, otherwise their season will be lost.
Santos Laguna has been superb this season as they currently have 22 points and sit in 4th place, 6 points behind the leader Tigres. The team lead by Pedro Caixinha has been on the rise, and they currently are in a 6 game streak without a loss. Like Tijuana, Santos is also urged for a win in order to begin their process of securing a ticket to the playoffs. There are 8 teams below them who in a matter of 2 weeks could surpass them in the standings, thus, kicking them out of a seed.
