In an exciting Liga MX match, Santos Laguna will receive Tigres UANL this Saturday, April 23, 2016 (5:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Corona in Torreon. This Week 15 of the Clausura 2016 will be one of the must-watch games as both teams are deep in the fight for a playoff seed.
Santos Laguna enters Saturday’s match with good possibility of reaching the ‘liguilla’ as after 14 games they sit in 5th place with 24 points. The team coached by Luis Zubeldia needs the win to confirm their qualification, yet, a loss could put them in some risk of failing to do so. To their fortune, Santos is undefeated in their past three games, and along with the home support, they will have a good opportunity to earn points against the always difficult Tigres.
Tigres are is danger of failing to reach the playoffs, and to reach the FIFA Club World Cup. The team coached by Ricardo Ferretti lost the first-leg final of the CONCACAF Champions League against Club America and now is close to losing in that tournament. They will carry that poor morale to Torreon in yet another important match this Saturday night. With 20 points and in 8th place, Tigres must win in order to stay in the battle for a playoff seed, while a loss could pull them out of playoff zone.
The Santos Laguna vs Tigres UANL Liga MX match will be televised on Azteca America at 5:00 PM Pacific.
