Club Tijuana vs Club Leon
Mexican Liga MX Apertura
Date: Saturday 23rd November 2019
Kick off at 03:10 UK/ 04:10 CET
Venue: Estadio Caliente (Tijuana)
Club Tijuana will have more riding on this game than their opponents as they try to qualify for the play-offs. Only goal difference separates Tijuana from being in the top 8 and this qualify for the play-offs and they have a great chance to cement their place with a win at the weekend.
Form has not been good coming into this game and they have lost 2 matches in a row. However the encouraging sign is that at home they have lost just 1 game from 8 although that defeat came in their last home match which ended in a 4-0 loss to Monterrey.
Club Leon have already qualified for the play-offs and they are in 4th place with 30 points and six clear of Tijuana. Their last match ended in a 4-0 victory over Toluca and away from home Leon have the 4th best record in the league. Still caution needs to be applied because from their 8 away games they have still lost 3 of them, that amounts to 40%.

Club Tijuana vs Club Leon: Prediction
We will put our faith in Club Tijuana to beat Club Leon for the first time at home since 2017. Tijuana have lost two games coming into this match but have been quite reliable this season in the league and do have a very good home record. Leon have already lost quite a few games on the road and we must remember that they have already qualified for the play-offs. If this game becomes pacy and physical we don’t think that Leon will have much to offer. We will also back both teams to score in this game.
