The Cruz Azul vs Tigres UANL Liga MX match will be played this Saturday, May 7, 2016 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Azul in Mexico City. This Clausura 2016 Week 17 match could be considered as the must-watch game of the weekend as both teams must win in order to secure qualification into the playoffs.
Both Cruz Azul and Tigres will play Saturday’s game as if it was a final. The ‘cementeros’ sit in 8th place with 22 points, while the ‘auriazules’ lie right below in 9th place with 21 points. If the season were to end today, Cruz Azul will be in the playoffs and Tigres eliminated, yet a series of results could have one of the two or neither in the playoffs.
Cruz Azul‘s fortune is in their own hands as a win at home will qualify them. Meanwhile, a loss will eliminate them, while a tie will give them some hope as long as Pumas does not defeat Club America on Sunday in the ‘Clasico Capitalino’.
On the other hand, Tigres cannot afford to lose or tie as that will lead to their elimination and their lost opportunity to defend their Apertura 2015 title. The team coached by Ricardo ‘Tuca’ Ferreti will qualify into the ‘liguilla’ with a win and hope that Pumas does not defeat the ‘aguilas’ by a very large margin of goals.
