The Chivas vs Xolos Tijuana match will be held this Sunday, September 15, 2013 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Omnilife. Chivas of Guadalajara will attempt to win their first match in the Liga MX under coach Juan Carlos Ortega with whom they have tied two matches; the last a painful 3-3 against Tigres after having a three goal lead. Meanwhile, Club Tijuana will try to earn their first victory on the road, as they have lost all three Liga MX away matches.
Chivas once again has begun the league in great disappointment. After 8 matches, they have only gathered 6 points, with 1 win, 3 ties, and 4 losses. They stand dangerously close to the last positions in the standings, while week after week their problems with relegation becomes a bigger concern. On Sunday, they will go for their first win under coach Ortega, but most importantly, they will attempt to change the direction of their current performances.
In front, they will face Xolos of Tijuana who last week defeated Veracruz 3-0 at the Estadio Caliente. Unfortunately for Xolos, they have not been a strong team while on the road as they have lost 3 and tied 1. Club Tijuana has not been capable of playing well under coach Jorge Almiron, therefore a win on Sunday would prove that their form has improved.
The players to watch in this match are Marco Fabian from Chivas, and Fidel Martinez from Xolos. Fabian will replace Rafael Marquez Lugo who is out for the match; this will be a great opportunity for the midfielder to show he is mentally and physically back in form. Meanwhile, Martinez has been a real star for Xolos as the forward leads the team with 5 goals.
