Tijuana vs Puebla – Jornada 4 Recap and Highlights

Tijuana remained unbeaten this season with a 2-0 win against Puebla. The result keeps the Xoos perfect at home as well, while the Poblanos remain winless on the road.

The hosts took the lead in the 11th minute. A cutback into the box from the end line slipped through both attackers and defenders before Damián Musto ran on to it at the top of the box. He sent the ball towards the far post, where Gustavo Bou finished it off to make it 1-0 for Tijuana.

Puebla tried to react, but they struggled to get a foothold in the game. Tijuana has the best defensive record in the league to date, with the Xolos having yet to concede a single goal this season.

Tijuana came closer to adding a second than Puebla did to scoring their first; they had a good chance in the 23rd minute through Juan Lucero, but his attempt hit the post. The hosts hit the woodwork again in the 54th minute through Bou, who came within inches of scoring his second of the night.

Tijuana finally sealed the victory in the 72nd minute, when Juan Lucero finished off a cross from Víctor Malcorra to make it 2-0.

They could have added a third as well, but Moisés Muñoz denied Lucero his second with an impressive save on Lucero’s shot from distance.

With the 2-0 win, Tijuana reaches eight points while Puebla still has six.
