Cruz Azul vs Club Tijuana – Liga MX leader Cruz Azul will aim to extend its winning streak to five games when it clashes with struggling Tijuana on Saturday. It all began with a fine 3-1 victory over Pachuca. Cruz Azul has since swept aside Guadalajara, Tigres and Monarcas Morelia to surge to the top of the table. It also thumped Robert Siboldi’s men also thumped Portmore home and away in the CONCACAF Champions League, making it six wins on the bounce. They have taken 16 points from eight games so far, and they are strong at home.
Tijuana Struggles to Make an Impact
Club Tijuana is languishing at the other end of the table. It has taken just two points from its last five games. Back-to-back defeats against Puebla and Guadalajara have left Tijuana 16th in the standings. Any hopes of reaching the playoffs appear to be fading. However, Tijuana stands on the brink of reaching the Copa MX final, so that could be its main focus right now. It lost six of nine away games in Torneo Apertura, and it has continued to struggle in the Clausura championship. It has played three away games so far, losing two and drawing the other.
