The Xolos Tijuana vs Tigres UANL Liga MX match will be played this Friday, August 1, 2014 (7:30 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Caliente. Xoloitzcuintles are desperate for a win, as they lost their first two games of the season. Meanwhile, Tigres will look to obtain their first win ever in Tijuana since Xolos reached the first division in 2011.
Xolos of Tijuana is very close to entering panic-mode. The Cesar Farias experiment could be reaching its final stages if the border team loses at home this Friday night against the difficult rival, Tigres. Xolos has not been productive in their first two games of the season, losing 1-0 at home in the first week against Puebla, and 2-1 last week against Club America at the Estadio Azteca.
Since joining the first division, the Estadio Caliente has been a true fortress for Xolos, therefore they will attempt to prove that this season will follow the same lines. Anything other than a win will put their season in jeopardy, as well as Farias’ tenure with Tijuana.
The team coached by Ricardo Ferretti began the season in good form, gathering 4 points, including a 4-2 win last week against the reigning champions Leon. Tigres is a highly talented team which always looks to be on top of the standings. This season, the team from Monterrey looks particularly stable, although they have been marred in controversy by the Alan Pulido novel, who was pulled from the first team this past week.

This Friday night, look for Tijuana to dominate the game, while Tigres will play ‘Tuca-ball’ and focus on defense and the counter-attack. The Xolos vs Tigres match will end in a fun 1-1 tie.
