  • With the Liga MX championship achieved, Diego Reyes will prepare to join F.C. Porto this summer.
  • Tijuana faced Atlético Mineiro in the Copa Libertadores this past week. A 2-0 victory was erased late in the game as Atlético Mineiro managed to claim a draw in the home of the Xolos. Tijuana will travel to Brazil to take on the second leg on May 30th.

  1. -Club America… Blah blah blah hahaha but happy to see some major players for el Tri like Jimenez, Maza and Reyes are on top of their game.
    -Tijuana, I still have faith they can turn around the second leg. They were just to careless in the first match but over all they looked better then Atletico Mineiro
    -Nigeria is a perfect friendly, it wont be a walk in the park ever against the Africans.
    -Ochoa paid his dues and deserves a better team, would be nice to see him at Napoli but Liverpool sounds even better!!

    1. I have faith in Tijuana. I feel they understand this is probably their most difficult match, after this round it is gonna be a little bit easier which may explain why they may have slipped up. It’ll be hard but they can definitely pull off an upset.

      I am really pumped for the Nigeria game. I think Mexico is gonna find that rhythm they need this summer!

  2. Apparently AC Ajaccio confirmed that Ochoa won’t leave the club this summer. I guess that’s good for him. He’s assured a starting spot and his team is still in first division.
