The Santos Laguna vs Veracruz Liga MX Week 13 match will take place this Friday, April 8, 2016 at the Estadio TSM Corona at 7:30 PM Pacific.
Santos Laguna will attempt to put an end to their current streak of four games (in both Liga MX and Concachampions) without a win. The last time they won was on March 11 against Pachuca and since they lost twice and lost twice with 1 goal scored and 4 against. Most importantly, the team from Torreon is coming from a difficult defeat on Wednesday in the semifinals of the Concachampions against Club America with a 0-1 overtime loss after a deadly mistake from goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin. Nonetheless, Santos is still the favorite to win on Friday night and a win would raise their points total to 21, and keep them in playoff qualification zone.
Veracruz has had a very difficult season in which they have only won once, lost four, but tied seven. Coach Carlos Reinoso could have seen his last days in charge of the team, but their current run in the Copa MX has him holding tight to his job. The ‘tiburones’ defeated Atletico San Luis midweek, and will face Necaxa for the Copa MX Clausura 2016 final.
The Santos Laguna vs Veracruz Liga MX match will be televised on Azteca America at 7:30 PM Pacific.
