The Xolos Tijuana vs Monterrey Liga MX match will be held this Friday, April 15, 2016 (7:30 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Caliente. This game will be one of the most interesting to watch during Week 14 of the Clausura 2016 as it will be crucial for Club Tijuana’s dreams to remain alive in the battle for a playoff seed.
Xolos of Tijuana have had a confusing season where they have not played as bad as their numbers represent. After 13 games, the team coached by Miguel ‘Piojo’ Herrera sits in 10th place with 16 points after 3 wins, 7 ties, and 3 losses. The ‘border’ team has demonstrated good soccer, however, they have been unable to maintain concentration throughout 90 minutes of several games which has ultimately cost them wins. Against Monterrey Xolos is obligated to win in order to remain dreaming with a playoff seed. To accomplish this they will have to win at home (which they have not done in the entire season!), and they will need to defeat the league’s best team.
Rayados of Monterrey sit in first place of the standings with 30 points after 10 wins and 3 losses. Coach Antonio Mohamed will attempt to earn another win as they battle to finish the league in first place. Although they are favored to win this Friday, it will be difficult as Xolos’ future is on the line. As an extra ingredient, ‘Turco’ Mohamed will most likely receive a fare welcome from the home crowds as he was in charge the last time the border team performed consistently well.
The Xolos Tijuana vs Monterrey Liga MX match will be televised on Azteca America at 7:30 PM Pacific.
