Led by Brazilian technical director Ricardo “Tuca” Ferretti, the team with the highest number of points in Mexican football in the last 10 years will try to achieve seven points out of nine players.

For their part, Xolos had a very unusual start as they had a good start, beating the locals in Atlas 3 against 1, but last weekend at Azteca Square was eliminated by America, beating them 4-0.
For this result, Tijuana is the most unfavorable defense, on equal terms with Mazatlán, Toluca and Atlas, who will try to change the Argentine coach Pablo Guede.
It is worth mentioning that Los Felinos has become a nightmare when it comes to visiting Tijuana, as there are 10 recorded games on the border that have passed the top five times and have only been won once by homeowners.
