Tijuana Faces Must-Win Showdown Against Pumas UNAM to Salvage Season in Liga MX

Tijuana is teetering on the edge of a premature end to their season, desperately seeking a change in fortune as they gear up to face Pumas UNAM in Mexico City on Sunday. Having failed to secure a single win in the Clausura campaign, the team has only a slim chance of making it to the playoffs. However, their recent form suggests a glimmer of hope, with four of their six points coming from their last five games, four of which have been draws.

For those eager to catch the action, the game is scheduled for March 10, 2024, at 2 p.m. ET, hosted at Estadio Olimpico Universitario in Mexico City. Viewers can tune in to TUDN for TV coverage or catch the live stream on Fubo by starting a free trial.

Pumas UNAM, currently sitting in seventh place, faces pressure after two consecutive defeats but remains on the cusp of automatic quarter-final qualification. Manager Gustavo Lema, succeeding Antonio Mohammed, is navigating his first senior coaching role with commendable results.

As an assistant at Tijuana’s Estadio Caliente for 18 months, Lema will utilize his insider knowledge against his former team. Meanwhile, Mexican managerial icon Miguel Herrera, leading Tijuana, boasts extensive experience against UNAM, making this Sunday’s clash his 47th encounter with Pumas in his coaching career.

Herrera, recognized for his stints with Club América, Tigres, and Monterrey, has a record of 18 wins, 14 draws, and 14 losses against Pumas, with a recent setback in the form of a 3-2 home defeat during last year’s Apertura. Despite his past success, Herrera’s first Clausura campaign in Tijuana has been challenging, adding an element of desperation as he returns to the capital.

As both club and coach find themselves in a critical situation, Sunday’s match is pivotal for Tijuana to revive their season and keep playoff hopes alive.
