Miguel Herrera’s first tournament as Tigres technical director has been full of ups and downs. The UANL team has suffered painful defeats such as the elimination of the Leagues Cup and the failure in the Classic Regio. Throughout the season, the cats have suffered numerous casualties due to injury, a fact that has prevented the team from deploying its best football and offering better performance.
The stoppage for the FIFA Date in October, however, has been a great help for the university squad. In this period, Tigres has been able to recover four fundamental players for the closing of the tournament. The ‘Piojo’ Herrera will be able to count on elements of weight for the duel against Cruz Azul this Saturday, October 16.
According to information from Telediario, André Pierre Gignac, Nicolás López, Hugo Ayala and Javier Aquino have worked alongside their colleagues in the most recent training session. The four players are in good physical condition and could have minutes against the Sky Machine on matchday 13 of the Grita México tournament of Liga MX.
Tigres is currently in fifth place in the general classification. The UANL team has four victories, six draws and two defeats. In the last five dates of the tournament, the cats will face Cruz Azul, Pachuca, América, Chivas de Guadalajara and FC Juárez.
Miguel Herrera’s team will have to have a strong finish to improve its position in the general table and qualify among the first four places to have a safe place in the league.
