Team form: Atlas is struggling this season, they are placed 13th on the table and they have lost four of five previous games. They are coming off a 2-0 Copa MX loss in Estadio Jalisco to Club America
Atlas is looking to sign Lazio’s English midfielder Ravel Morrison which may reinforce the team’s spineless midfield.
Manager Jose Guadalupe Cruz hopes that the Manchester United young gun has a possible career in Mexico.
Team Form: The Tigres seems to fight back this season and sits third on the table with 12 points. They have two wins and two losses in their last five games. They are coming off a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Cruz Azul in the MX Cup, conceding twice in the last 10 minutes of the game. They have busted their chance to be alive in the league now.
The Tigers played with a youth squad in the MX Cup loss, in the absence of 10 starters and this can be a problem for them again if they follow it in the game against Atlas Friday night.
Tigres has signed Timothee Kolodziejczak to replace Borussia Monchengladbach. The French defender Friday’s play is doubtful.
