Stubhub Center in Carson, CA, was witness to the Campeon de Campeones matchup between the La Liga Bancomer MX Apertura 2015 and Clausura 2016 champions, UANL Tigres and CF Pachuca. The official attendance was 27, 167 for this match which Tigres won with the minimum score of 1-nil.
Tigres Manager Ricardo Ferreti might be reconsidering his words after his player Israel Jimenez exited the game injured and Jimenez’ teammate Jose Francisco Torres exhibited noticeable hobble during the award ceremony. The Tigres honcho surprisingly expressed that “while this may look like a prep game, it is not. There is a title at stake.”
Jimenez is a big loss as it was his connection with Javier Aquino and recent signing Ismael Sosa who connected for the game’s sole goal.
Liga MX Balon de Oro for best Offensive midfielder, Hirving Lozano, failed to have an impact on the final score. Despite finding himself with plenty of space in front of connect, his finishing let him down on the night. Rumors have swirled around Lozano, with many reports placing him as Manchester United’s next big signing.
