Reeling FC Juárez arrives tonight at the Estadio Universitario to take on the league’s hottest side in the Tuca Tigers, with León of course It doesn’t look good for the border town
After a poor start to the season, Tuca Ferretti has balanced the ship Now on a five-game winning streak, he will look to lead his side to a sixth consecutive win, a season high, when they face FC Juárez tonight Now 3rd in the overall standings, they are in a position to become a real threat to the rest of the league as they look to get first round leave and therefore some advantage on the pitch.
Even the FIFA international break wasn’t enough to cool this scorching Tigers squad, who started where they left off before the break, entering the Estadio Azteca and overcoming a Cruz Azul , so 2nd, hopefully we could add, but nonetheless, give ‘La Máquina’ their first home loss of the season, a feat that is never easy to accomplish By the way, this ‘was the Tigers’ fifth consecutive victory, and today they will try to keep pace with León, who just took his sixth consecutive victory last night
It should be noted that the Tigers are recovering two key defenders (Hugo Ayala and Carlos Salcedo) for tonight’s game, after testing positive for COVID a few days ago Julián Quiñones, however, will have to wait until next week as he still hasn’t got the go-ahead from medical staff. In that five-game winning streak, Tuca’s side have not conceded a single goal or scored less than twice in each game, scoring 12 goals in the last 450 minutes of play.
FC Juárez, meanwhile, are currently 12th overall, holding last place in the playoffs with just three wins of the season so far, with five draws and six losses. Their last four games haven’t produced the ideal results, as they came out on the losing side against lowly Atlas and Tijuana, got a draw in Pachuca, and followed it up with last week’s performance, which was probably the worst of the season, as they were bombarded by Mazatlán, 17th place, which made them lose 3-0 in the first half hour of the match And Mazatlán could have made a bigger difference, without their lack of quality up front
Thus, FC Juárez take their 4th lowest attack in the league (13 goals) to visit a team which has not allowed any goals in its last five matches and which is tied for best defense of the league (11 goals), with León But despite defending in the middle of the field, Gabriel Caballero’s side have allowed 7 goals in their last four matches They have been struggling fiercely in recent times and will have their toughest match yet in what is expected to result in yet another loss, especially with Tigers now at full strength
PREDICTION: FC Juárez will come out in full defense, conceding the Tigers with the initiative of the game Given the problems Juárez has had in recent times, I don’t see how Gignac, Fernández, Aquino and the searing revelation ‘Diente’ López won’t put this game open anytime soon Unless a red card or an unexpected penalty kick, the Tigers should have no problem overcoming this struggling and edgy side, which are incredibly still in playoff territory And even with any circumstantial and awkward event for Tuca and his company, I still expect them to bounce back and win the Tigers match by 2
