The Santos vs Tigres Liga MX match will be held this Friday, August 16, 2013 (7:30 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Corona. In what is arguably the best match in Week 6 of the Apertura 2013, Tigres will go into the TSM with the support of thousands of their fans who made the travel into Torreon. Santos Laguna on the other hand will attempt to ruin their opponent’s festivities as they will try to prolong their undefeated streak this season.
Santos Laguna has not been defeated after 4 games this season; they have won 2 and tied 2. With 8 points, the team coached by Pedro Caixinha sits in 4th place of the regular standings, just 3 points behind the leader Veracruz, and with one match less played. On Friday night, the team from Torreon will have a very hard match against a top team like Tigres. Tigres is coming from a memorable ‘Clasico Regio’ win, which means they will arrive with high morale.
The team coached by Ricardo ‘Tuca’ Ferreti began the season in bad form. However, they have won their past 2 games, and they will attempt to win their 3rd straight against Santos. Tigres is a team that has not changed their roster and their tactics for several years now, meaning they are a real playoffs and title contender for the Apertura 2013. A win in Torreon will serve as a parameter to understand if they finally reached the form expected of them.
