Tigres vs America. August 20th and 24th.
Expect the Galaxy to send out the same XI vs Cruz Azul. They play LAFC a few days later.

Imma keep saying a cup competition between @LigaBBVAFemenil and @NWSL would be a massive hit. If they are worried about money well its gonna bring in money as long as they market it. Just imagine Tigres against Chicago, it will sell out.

The #Tigres goal took a pretty big deflection. Rimando may have done better but it changed direction
Petke got the red. He was en fuego after the match. New rule

Playing Tigres beats the heck out of playing some German 2nd div team, or beating the cRapids and feeling we've done something. It's fun to see RSL play someone of consequence. Plus, winning begets winning. So play more, play the best, and try to establish a winning culture 2/3

America vs Tigres in Houston? That’s a bet

Biggest difference between quality was the off the ball movement. RSL started out moving around and getting forward, but then started to fall asleep. Tigres kept their energy high all game. @lars_mm

He also failed to address the time wasting from both teams. Once Tigres scored it was extremely blatant, but he never addressed it, allowed teams to get heated and chippy.

Props to Tigres. They were not crowned last season because of flukes. They are a club we should aspire to be like.
