Tigres UANL vs Toluca: Storylines
Two teams that have high goals for this season will clash in a midweek game of the Mexican league. Both of them haven't been in great form lately so whoever gets the three points will be satisfied.
The current CONCACAF Champions League winners haven't had a strong start to the league up to know despite they have a title-contender team. In their last four games, Tigres managed to get just five points. Tuca Ferreti's side isn't too far away from the top places and with some wins they can climb up, though, but they need to find consistency to improve their current position.
Toluca, however, couldn't get a win in the last two games and that's why they lost some places in the table after getting to the top at some point. Hernán Cristante's men must prove what they are capable of against a tough team, who finished as runners-up of the last Club World Cup and still hold the continental trophy.
