Apertura 2016 Week 12 Preview: Friday’s Game

liga mxTijuana vs Atlas – 10:00 PM – Azteca America
Tijuana (1st) beat Santos Laguna 1-2 last weekend to give them back-to-back wins and a nine-game unbeaten streak. The Xolos are not only unbeaten but perfect at home this season, with five wins out of five. They’ve also outscored their opponents by an impressive 11-1 margin in the Estadio Caliente and they’ll look to remain top of the table with another home win in this one.

As for Atlas (10th), the Rojinegros beat Monterrey 3-1 last weekend to snap a five-game winless streak. Atlas is still winless on the road this season, though, with two draws and three losses. They’ll look to end that poor run of form here, but it will be a hard ask against the league’s best home team. Atlas has also struggled to score on the road, averaging just a goal a game away from home.
