In the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League final, Pachuca will host Tigres UANL at the Estadio Hidalgo this Wednesday, April 26, 2017 (7:00 PM Pacific). Both teams are battling for a playoff spot in the Liga MX and have done well in the CCL which should make for an enticing duel.
Pachuca has been struggling massively in the Liga MX competition, not having been able to score in its last six league games. The ‘tuzos’ are now in eighth place in the Liga MX with 20 points and may fall out of a playoff spot if their offensive struggles continue. In the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League final, Pachuca came away with an important 1-1 result away from home against Tigres UANL. Pachuca has not lost to the felines this year, the other result being a 1-0 victory at the Estadio Hidalgo in week 6 of the Liga MX Clausura 2017. Franco Jara scored the lone goal in that encounter and will need to surge in this game along with Hirving Lozano and the Pachuca attack in order to achieve a favorable result.
Tigres UANL is currently just out of the playoff picture in the Liga MX in ninth place with 19 points. The current Liga MX champions are coming from a devastating 1-0 loss to archrivals, Monterrey. Winning the CCL can be a huge morale boost for Tigres UANL and could propel them to a playoff spot in the Liga MX. Andre-Pierre Gignac and the feline’s attack was shut down in that game against Monterrey proving to still be inconsistent this year. Ricardo Ferretti’s side usually excels in showing up in vital moments and must be in top form for this game. Pachuca has not lost at home since November of 2015 and Tigres UANL will have to play their best to break that impressive streak.
