The Chivas of Guadalajara vs Xolos of Tijuana Apertura 2017 Liga MX match will take place this Saturday, October 28, 2017 (7:06 PM Pacific). This will be an interesting game as the visitors Xolos must win to remain in the close race for a playoff seed.
The rebaño sagrado has had a terrible season so far where they have earned a mere 12 points after 14 games. The team coached by Matias Almeyda has almost confirmed their elimination from postseason contention, therefore all their efforts are now concentrated on earning another Copa MX title.
With their 3-2 win over Veracruz last Sunday, Chivas ended a five-game win-less streak which condemned them to having one of their worst seasons in years. This Saturday, the team from Guadalajara really has nothing to play for other than to keep in form for their next Copa MX quarterfinal match.
Xolos of Tijuana has also struggled this season, yet the border team is deep in the fight to be one of the eight playoff teams. The team coached by Eduardo Coudet enters Jornada 15 in 10th place and 3 points behind 8th placed Cruz Azul.
For that reason, Xolos is required to win Saturday night to have a chance to qualify into the ‘liguilla’. With a loss, they will say goodbye to their season.
