TIJUANA, BC. - Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles de Caliente will be debuting in the Copa Libertadores tournament 2013, and will be going up against Millonarios from Columbia in the first round of group number 5.

The game will start at 4:30p.m. (PST) at the Nemesio Camacho stadium which is better known as “The Campin.”

Xolos arrived in Bogota, Columbia, on Sunday night and had their first practice on Monday morning at the stadium that is home to the Millonarios. “The Campincito” is what their home field is known as.

Because of the Xolos two consecutive loss and the injured player, Alfredo “Chango” Moreno, head coach Antonio Mohamed might change the formation of his players on the field against this Columbian team.

But if the Xolos head coach decides to keep his usual spectacular formation of 4-3-3 and Cerilio Saucedo as the starting keeper. Then the players to most likely be on defense will be Edgar Castillo, Juan Carlos Núñez, Javier Gandolfi and Pablo Cesar Aguilar.

Playing in the midfield will be Cristian Pellerano, Fernando Arce and Joe Corona.

Up top as forwards will be Fidel Martinez, Raul Enriquez and Duvier Riascos.

If there is a change in the Xolos field formation because of Moreno’s absence, then it will most likely be a 4-4-2 formation with no changes made on defense and the goalie. The change will be made up front where one of the forwards will move back into the midfield, which it will most likely be Fidel Martinez who will be moved back.

Fans of the Xolos will be able to enjoy the game which will be broadcasted live on Fox Sports in Mexico, and on Fox Deportes in the United States.
