The Pachuca vs Chiapas Liga MX match will be played this Saturday, May 7, 2016 (6:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Hidalgo. This Clausura 2016 Week 17 match is important for the ‘tuzos’ in their attempt to remain in the top 3 of the regular standings.
Pachuca have demonstrated throughout the entire season that they are one of the best teams in the Liga MX. The team coached by Diego Alonso sits in 3rd place with 27 points and has the third best offense with 29 goals, and the top defense with only 15 goals against.
The ‘tuzos’ will receive the league’s worst team in what will be a good warm-up prior to the start of the ‘liguilla’. However, this game must not be taken lightly by Pachuca as they must obtain a good result to potentially finish the season in 2nd place; a loss could drop them into 5th place and out of home field advantage.
As opposed to Pachuca, Chiapas has been disastrous throughout the Clausura 2016. The team coached by Ricardo Lavolpe is in last place with only 12 points with the worst offense (15 goals), and the second worst defense (31 goals). A win this Saturday could help Jaguares to not finish the season as the worst team, yet considering they face a much better team, a win may not be possible.
