Two clubs chasing CONCACAF Champions League glory will do battle today in a cup match between Cruz Azul and Club Tijuana. The seminal clash scheduled for 10 p.m. ET will be held at the Estadio Azul in Mexico City and can be live streamed here.
For Tijuana, today's match against Cruz Azul is one of many important fixtures remaining on the club's schedule. In the Liga MX standings, the Xolos are battling for a playoff spot. In the CCL, there's a berth in the final to play for. Fortunately, midfielder Javier Güemez is taking a measured approach (h/t to CONCACAF's official website). "We go with the mentality of getting points and follow the right track looking for the objective of advancing to the next round of the tournament," said the 22-year-old.
"We want to keep it zero on our goal and we want to make a good game in that sense," he expressed. "We are working hard to reach a place in playoffs and it will be very important to be solid in defense and know to score when opportunities present themselves."
