Those led by Robert Dante Siboldi took the field with the intention of at least not losing, since a tie on aggregate gave them a pass to the next round. However, with a goal from Jesús Angulo in the second half, those from San Nicolás de los Garza, Nuevo León defeated the capital’s team by the slightest difference, who are forced to win by two goals in the second leg.
Those led by Antonio: the ‘Turk’ Mohamed, will come to this commitment with the obligation to win at the ‘Volcano’. Something that no other club has managed to do since Uruguayan Robert Dante Siboldi took the reins of the Tigres team.
Tigres will line up with Nahuel Guzmán in goal, Javier Aquino as a right winger, Samir Caetano and Guido Pizarro in the center; Jesús Angulo on the left side.
