The Queretaro vs Xolos Tijuana Liga MX match will be played this Friday, March 28, 2014 (6:30 PM Pacific) at the Estadio La Corregidora. This game between two ‘liguilla’ hopefuls will kick-off Week 13 of the highly competitive Clausura 2014 season. Both sides will look for the win which will keep them in the tight race for a playoff seed.
Ever since the Gallos Blancos were hit by the news that their owner is in a serious criminal case, they have been on a terrible playing form. In the last six games, the team coached by Ignacio Ambriz lost five in a row, until last week when they defeated Tigres 2-0. Entering Week 13, Queretaro is in 15th place with 13 points, where a win this Friday could place them within reach of a top-8 seed.
Xoloitzcuintles de Caliente have also not had the best season thus far, as they stand in 9th place with 17 points. To their fortune, this Clausura 2014 has been very competitive in terms of points, as Xolos stands only 3 points away from 3rd place Pachuca. The team lead by Cesar Farias has demonstrated signs of improvement in the past games, especially with the healthy offensive duo of Dario Benedetto, and Jaimen Ayovi. Against Gallos Blancos, Xolos will have to demonstrate their best face, not only to remain in playoff contention, but also to eliminate a negative winning-less away-games streak in the Liga MX which dates back to April 2013.
Queretaro vs Xolos Tijuana Prediction
The Queretaro vs Xolos Tijuana game will set a nice tone to Week 13 of the Clausura 2013 as these two sides will give it their all to earn the 3 points and keep in the fight for playoff contention. Although Queretaro is the home team, they are not favorites to win as they have not been in the greatest form within the past month.
Meanwhile, Xolos has the capacity to win this one, but they will have to fight against that poor road-streak which has affected their form and table position throughout the season. In a good game, the Queretaro vs Xolos Tijuana game will end in a 1-2 win for the visitors.
