Clausura 2017 Week 7 Preview: Friday’s Game

liga mxVeracruz vs Tigres UANL – 10:00 PM – Azteca America
Veracruz (8th) fell 1-0 to Toluca last weekend to extend their road losing streak to three games. The Tiburones Rojos are still unbeaten – and are in fact perfect – at home, though, and they will look to get back to winning ways when they return to the Estadio Luis Pirata Fuente for this one. Veracruz has also been very good defensively at home, where they have posted three consecutive clean sheets.

As for Tigres UANL (16th), the universitarios fell 1-0 to Pachuca last weekend to keep them winless on the road this season and also extend their overall losing streak to three games. Tigres have also failed to score in that span, with their scoreless streak now standing at 278 minutes. Tigres have, in fact, failed to score in five of their six games this season, which is a significant cause for concern. Another loss here could see them end the weekend in last place in the table, which is not where the reigning champion wants to be.
