The heavily favored Tigres host a dangerous Toluca side that could surprise any moment.
The last time these two clubs met in person was in mid-August, in the fifth round of the regular season, when the undefeated Tigres visited La Bombonera to compete against a lackluster, boring Toluca team. And although things started as expected and Gignac in his 40s. Minute brought the guests 1-0 lead, things went downhill from there. Toluca’s Alexis Canelo ended the comeback and scored in the 90. Minute the winning goal in stoppage time. After that game, the Escarlatas would only win three more games later in the season, while Tuca and Company would lose only two more. For both of them completely different stories about the season.
Tigres come into today’s game after failing to play as desired at home and setting a 4W, 4D, 1L record. However, their track record helped level the situation. They also had the second best defense in the league overall (16 goals conceded). Toluca, on the other hand, was one of the worst street teams in the league (1W, 2D, 6L). . Not to mention the league’s third worst defense, conceding a total of 28 goals – a mammoth 19 of those 28 on the road. However, that was the worst game in the league.

How do these two clubs get to today’s game? The home team will have their entire arsenal at their disposal as the strong defense of Chaka, Ayala, Meza and Salcedo and the all-star midfield of Carioca, Pizarro, Dueñas and these bad guys are available. And not to mention the offensive top guns of the dream team, led by Gignac, followed by Leo Fernández, Aquino, both Quiñones, and not to forget the team and possibly league reveal Nico López. They will of course do without Eduardo Vargas, who left the club earlier this month to join Jorge Sampaolis Atlético Mineiro.
After Toluca’s head coach Carlos Morales said during the weakness that Toluca was a “bigger” club than Tigres, as “10 titles are more than 7” the last time he checked, his club has some big ( no pun intended) words to secure on the square later that evening. With the Maidana and the background society not as reliable as one might wish, the Diablos Rojos will rely heavily on their dangerous attackers tonight. The fact that, like their rivals, led by Güemez and William da Silva in midfield and up front with seasoned leader Sambueza and championship leader Alexis Canelo (6 goals), gives them a chance to fight.
KEY TO THE GAME: If Tigres are looking to celebrate their playoff birth tonight, they have to focus on two points. First of all, don’t let Toluca get on the board early. We saw the trouble Tuca’s squad went through when he fell behind in an elimination game. Second, Gignac and the company need to take advantage of their opportunities upfront and be effective. We have seen that this squad is always far from the goal in big games, which ultimately cost them a shot at many more titles.
Toluca has to concentrate on one thing and only one: involve Rubens Sambueza from the start. The 36-year-old Argentinian player still has it and can change the outcome of a game with one game. He needs to stay involved and stay positively involved (touch the ball, create games, etc.. . ), not by committing fouls and showing a yellow card or adding another infamous red card to their résumé. Good things happened when he was involved, including the regular week 5 meeting of the season with Tigres when Sambueza assisted Canelo with his corner goal.
Ultimately, Tigres should win this match. They are by far the better team and have shown what they are capable of on certain tracks. They also have a lot of seasoned players who have won everything with them and have proven themselves in great moments. While Toluca can claim this game, it would be a surprise and a true underdog win. Rubens Sambueza will always give you a chance to fight, but I expect Tigres to win tonight and move to QF.
