Apertura 2017 Week 3 Results: Tigres 1, Queretaro 1

The defending champion Tigres are starting to resemble the Tigres we saw at the beginning of the Clausura 2017-they’re not playing bad but the offense has fizzled after a strong start, a trend that continued yesterday in a 1-1 home tie against Queretaro. Luis Noriega gave the Gallos Blancos an early lead with a 9th-minute goal, which they held until Lucas Zelarayan pulled Tigres even in the 57th minute. After a 5-goal outburst in the season opener, Tigres has scored just 1 goal in each of their last 2 games.
