Neaxa & Tigres faced off last night in a matchup of teams trying to put it together for a late playoff push. Although Tigres totally outplayed Necaxa on the stat sheets, they couldn’t translate it into enough goals as their offensive woes continued, and the game ended in a 1-1 tie. Both goals came in the first half-Francisco Meza put Tigres ahead in the 15th minute, but Jairo Gonzalez tied it up on a 41st minute direct shot, and that’s how it ended. The tie keeps Tigres 5 points out of the top 8, while Necaxa is 7 points back but only one point ahead of last.
