Tijuana vs Veracruz – Jornada 7 Recap and Highlights

Tijuana continued their climb up the table with a 3-0 victory against 10-man Veracruz. The result keeps the Xolos unbeaten in three and gives them back-to-back home wins, while the Tiburones Rojos remain winless and goalless in the Clausura.

The night got complicated for the visitors early on. In the 8th minute, Edson García was sent off after committing a handball to prevent a clear goal-scoring opportunity. That incident left the Tiburones Rojos with just 10 men – and also gave Tijuana a penalty kick.

Puebla vs Pachuca – Jornada 7 Recap and Highlights

Pachuca took the lead but couldn’t hold it, with a stoppage time goal by Puebla allowing the hosts to grab a 1-1 draw that will feel like a victory. The result keeps the Poblanos winless at home this season but unbeaten in two overall, while the Tuzos remain winless on the road but unbeaten in four overall.

Puebla started the game off strongly, with José Luis Sánchez Solá – “Chelis” – looking for a home win in his first game in charge of La Franja. Alejandro Chumacero looked dangerous in the attack, most notably forcing a good save out of Alfonso Blanco in the 18th minute.

Clausura 2019 Week 7 Preview: Sunday’s Games

Pumas UNAM vs América – 1:00 PM – Univision / Univision Deportes
Pumas UNAM (15th) beat Querétaro 0-2 last weekend to give them a long-awaited first victory of the Clausura. The universitarios will now look for their first home win when they return to the Estadio Olímpico Universitario for this rivalry match. Pumas is unbeaten at home, with a string of draws, but they’ll be looking for more in this Clásico Capitalino – especially since they’re facing the team who bounced them out of the playoffs last season with a humiliating 6-1 loss.

As for América (8th), the Águilas fell 0-3 to León last weekend to send them into this rivalry match on the back of a loss. América has alternated wins and losses over the past four weeks, and they’ll hope that pattern means they’ll be due a victory in the Clásico. They’ve been a strong attacking team, scoring two or more goals in every match until last weekend’s, and they’ll look for another goal-filled performance in this one.

Clausura 2019 Week 7 Preview: Saturday’s Games

Cruz Azul vs Santos Laguna – 6:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Cruz Azul (10th) drew 1-1 with Toluca last weekend to remain winless in two. They’ll look to get back on track when they return home to the Estadio Azteca, the scene of their last league victory, for this one. La Máquina has had some trouble scoring this season, though, with just four goals through six games and just one goal at home. On the other hand, they’re tied for the second-best defensive record in the league with only five goals allowed and three clean sheets. They’ll look to eke out another close win here.

As for Santos Laguna (9th), the Laguneros drew 1-1 with Tijuana last weekend to also remain winless in two. Santos is winless on the road as well, with two losses and a draw on their travels, and they’ll look to change that stat here. Like Cruz Azul, Santos hasn’t been all that prolific in front of goal, and they have yet to score more than one goal in a game. Changing that against Cruz Azul’s stingy defense might prove difficult.

Clausura 2019 Week 7 Preview: Friday’s Games

Monarcas Morelia vs Monterrey – 8:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Monarcas Morelia (16th) fell 2-0 to Pachuca last weekend to give them two losses in a row and keep them winless in three, as well as winless on the road this season. The michoacanos will now look to get back on track when they return home to the Estadio Morelos, but they’ll be facing the league leaders in this one. Morelia has struggled to score this season, averaging less than a goal per game, but on the other hand all four of their goals have come at home.

As for Monterrey (1st), the Rayados beat Lobos BUAP 4-0 last weekend to remain unbeaten this season. They have the best goal-scoring record in the league as well, averaging close to three goals per game, and they’ll look for another big win in this one. Monterrey’s schedule has been very home-heavy so far, with just two away games out of six, but facing one of the teams propping up the table is unlikely to test their ability to win on the road as well. They do need to win this one to guarantee they’ll hold on to first place, though.
