TIJUANA, BC. -Xolos have another chance for a rematch against Leon, who is the only team who beat them in the regular season, which the players from Club Tijuana this time are ready to play this Thursday at 7p.m. pacific standard time.
This match will take place at the Nou Camp stadium, which will be the first out of two games that will be played as part of the quarterfinals of the Apertura 2012 tournament of the Liga MX.
For the canine squad this is the perfect opportunity for revenge from the 0-4 result from the last game when these two teams played, which according to Tijuana’s head coach Antonio Mohamed “that was an accident and it will not happen again.”
Just like that after that game with Leon the team held up to their word, and has not lost a game which now they have gone 17 games in a row either winning or tying but have not been defeated.
To carry out their vendetta the team will have all of their starters and key players available, all who are not either injured or suspended, and surely the head coach will have Cirilo Saucedo as the starting goalie.
As defenders the lineup will be most likely with Edgar Castillo on the left, along with Pablo Cesar Aguilar and Javier Gandolfi, while Juan Carlos Nuñez will take care of the right side of the field.
In the middle there will be three players that has been part of the key to their success, and those players will be Cristian Perellano, Fernando Arce and Leandro Augusto who will take care of this part of the field, with the objective to make great passes and plays on the offensive attacks.
As forwards it will be Duvier Riascos on the left side, Richard Ruiz on the right, and in the middle it will be Alfredo “El Chango” Moreno.
This set up has brought great joy to the fans, which has also worked for the team’s success, but above all everyone enjoys seeing the Columbian player Riascos celebrations after every goal.
The second game will be played here at the Xolos home field Estadio Caliente on Sunday at 4:30p.m.
