The Tigres vs Cruz Azul Liga MX match will take place this Saturday, March 8, 2014 (5:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Universitario in Monterrey. This will be a game of complete opposites, as it features Tigres, last in the Liga MX, against Cruz Azul, the undisputed leader of the tournament. Tuca Ferreti’s team has been awful this season, and we shall see how long the Tigres ownership will keep him around.
Tigres have only won one game this season, and although they are last in the Liga MX with just eight points out of nine matches, they have not lost any of their last five matches. Tigres’ awful run is due to their completely ineffective offense, which has scored just three goals all season long. A surprising fact, considering Tigres have Alan Pulido, one of the best young Mexican strikers in the league.
Tigres are allowing just under one goal per match, so their defense is clearly not the problem. If Tuca can figure out a way for his team to supply more decent passes to Pulido, he could break his team out of this awful run. However, I seriously doubt they will get a positive result against red-hot Cruz Azul.
Cruz Azul is in first place with 25 points, having won eight out of nine, and left as the only team still undefeated this season. Their offense has been prolific, with 18 goals in nine matches, and with an outstanding defense to match, that has allowed just three goals this season.
Marco Fabian will definitely be the player to watch, the ex-Chivas winger has found his form with Cruz Azul, where he has become the offensive motor, and has scored four goals this season. All signs point towards an easy victory for Cruz Azul.
Tigres vs Cruz Azul Prediction
Tigres has the worst offense in the Liga MX, Cruz Azul has the best defense. Tigres has won just once this season, Cruz Azul has won eight in a row. When you look at all the stats, it is clear that Cruz Azul is a huge favorite. Unless Tigres can somehow learn how to score, there is no way they are getting any points. Cruz Azul will walk away with a 2-0 victory, and will continue its dominance over the Liga MX. Who knows, this might be the season Cruz Azul finally wins a title.
