Perhaps coach Ricardo Ferretti getting a break is what Tigres needed to break out of their second half slump-in the first game of 2 “Tuca” is suspended for after last week’s postgame incidents at Veracruz, Tigres showed no ill effects with a 2-0 road win today at Puebla. Jesus Duenas scored the first goal in the first half, while Eduardo Vargas scored in the second half. The game was plenty physical on both sides with 7 total Amarillas between the teams. The win now gets Tigres to just one point out of the top 8.
