Apertura 2016 Week 7 Preview: Friday’s Game

liga mxTijuana vs Pumas UNAM – 10:00 PM – Azteca America
Tijuana (1st) drew 1-1 with Necaxa last weekend to remain unbeaten in four. The Xolos are now returning home to the Estadio Caliente, where they are perfect this season with three wins out of three. Tijuana is tied for the best attacking record in the league and they’re particularly dangerous at home, where they’ve outscored their opponents 8-0. They’ll look to remain in first place with another win in this one.

As for Pumas UNAM (6th), the universitarios defeated Monterrey 5-3 last weekend to remain perfect at home. They are winless on the road, however, with two draws and a loss, and they’ll look to change that here. Pumas scored more goals in their last game than they had in their previous five games combined, and they’ll want to show that last week was not just an anomaly. They’ve only scored twice on the road to date but they’ll try to end Tijuana’s home shutout streak in this one.
