Miguel Herrera has not had the expected start with Tigres. The experienced strategist has not been able to get the best performance from his players in the first half of the season. The felines are currently in the eighth position of the general classification, they lost the Classic Regio and were eliminated at the first of changes in the Leagues Cup. The most worrying thing is that their team still does not have a stamp or a defined style.
The technical director, aware of this, would seek to overturn his proposal in the match of matchday 10 of the Liga MX against Pumas. In the duel against the National University, in the Volcano, Tigres would leave behind the famous line of five, to form a defense of four elements.
The defensive line of the UANL team against Pumas would be made up of: Luis ‘Chaka’ Rodríguez, Diego Reyes, Carlos Salcedo and Javier Aquino. For this commitment, Miguel Herrera would bet on a double containment made up of Guido Pizarro and Rafael Carioca. In the attack, the ‘Piojo’ would bet on Luis Quiñones and Florian Thauvin on the sides and André Pierre Gignac and Nicolás ‘Diente’ López as forwards in the center.
In this 4-2-3-1 stop, Javier Aquino would surprisingly play as a left back in a line of four. The former Cruz Azul footballer receives Herrera’s full confidence to play a defensive role.
Tigres has been on a three-game streak without knowing the victory (two draws and one loss), which will seek to break the weekend against Pumas. The UNAM squad marches third to last in the general table, just above Gallos Blancos de Querétaro and Xolos de Tijuana.
