The final game of Saturday action in week 7 of the Clausura 2014 had Jaguares de Chiapas FC hosting Tigres UANL at the Victor Manuel Reyna Stadium in southern Mexico. The north and south felinos went at it, but were not able to make a scratch on each other with the game coming to close with a scoreless draw.
The game was back-and-forth with neither team really having the opportunity to score. Jaguares only managed one shot on goal, with the visitors getting more shots in with four. The goalkeepers were the heroes of the game stopping those shots. Other than that the game was slow.
The result puts Chiapas in the 12th position on the league table with 8 points. Tigres remains at the bottom with 4 points.
With this result Tigres reaches seven games without a win in La Liga MX this season. In fact, the northern felinos are the only team that has not known a victory. This has rumors emerging all around that coach Ricardo “Tuca” Ferretti may be living his final minutes as head of the UANL. If Ferretti were to be released from the squad, it would be the first time the Brazilian-born coach has been fired from a team in Mexico.
The bad results for the Monterrey-based teams is alarming to the city that in recent years has provided several championships, and three trips to the FIFA Clubs World Cup. CF Monterrey fell 2-0 to current champions Leon FC. That also raised voices in the Tecnologico Stadium where the fans are calling for the return of former coach Victor Manuel Vucetich.
There can only be speculation over what will occur in the northern city of Monterrey in regards to their coaches. The reality is that the fans are not happy with the results and are crying out for a change.
Jaguares has a Copa MX match against Lobos BUAP midweek before traveling to Tijuana to take on Xolos. Tigres will visit Tamaulipas to face Correcaminos UAT before returning home to host Veracruz FC at the Universitario Stadium.
