CLUB TIJUANA EARNS POINT AT HOME VS. MORELIA
Xoloitzcuintles 1-1, LIGA MX 2018 Clausura Week 12

TIJUANA (March 16, 2018) –Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles played to a 1-1 tie against visiting Monarcas Morelia Friday in a Week 12 match at Estadio Caliente.

Miller Bolaños (5th minute) scored for the Xoloitzcuintles while Diego Valdes scored for Morelia in the 37th minute.

The Xoloitzcuintles took the lead early on. Bolaños got to a long cross by Jose Rivero from left to right. The Ecuadorian striker reached the pass at the end line and sent it in past Morelia goalkeeper Carlos Sosa.

Morelia tied the match when Valdes bent a free kick from about 20-yards out to the right of Club Tijuana goalkeeper Gibran Lajud. The ball curved over the Xoloitzcuintles defensive wall and out of reach for Lajud.

Club Tijuana moved the ball fluidly through space left open by Morelia throughout the match. That helped coach Diego Cocca’s team create a barrage of scoring chances. But none found the net after Bolaños’ goal. Defender Damian Musto, who was sent off late in the match for a second yellow, sent a header inches off the mark. Then there were two shots by Jose Garcia. One came off the right post. The other was blocked by a defender at the last moment. The Xoloitzcuintles will now head into a FIFA international break next week. It will resume LIGA MX action April 1 with a road match against Veracruz.
