Apertura 2016 Week 6 Preview: Friday’s Game

liga mxVeracruz vs Toluca – 10:00 PM – Azteca America
Veracruz (14th) drew 1-1 with Jaguares de Chiapas last weekend to leave them winless in three and winless on the road this season. The Tiburones Rojos will now return home to the Estadio Luis Pirata Fuente, the scene of their lone league victory to date, where they will look to bring their winless streak to a halt. Veracruz has scored multiple goals in all of their home games to date, but their defense has been somewhat suspect as of late. They also lost in midweek in the Copa MX, falling 1-2 to FC Juárez.

As for Toluca (12th), the Diablos Rojos drew 0-0 with Tigres UANL last weekend to remain unbeaten in two and unbeaten at home this season. They will now be returning to the road, however, where they are winless after three attempts (one draw and two losses). Toluca’s offense has been rather stagnant and they are averaging less than a goal per game this season; however, their defense has posted two consecutive shutouts and a point on the road wouldn’t be a bad result for them.
