The two Mexican teams are available for the fixture because of the international break with CONCACAF World Cup qualifying winding down leaving both teams short of players but the match is sure to still be an entertaining match.
Santos come to the match after coming second in the 2012 CONCACAF Champions League to the most popular side in San Antonio, Monterrey who won their third straight title.
Santos won the Clausura in 2012 in Mexico as they managed to get one back on Monterrey defeating them in the final to claim their fourth championship.
Tijuana are America's team in the Liga MX playing out of Tijuana with a big following in San Diego, CA and a big number of Americans in the squad with Herculez Gomez, Joe Corona, Edgar Castillo, Greg Garza, Alejandro Guido and Paul Arriola all members of the club but Gomez and Corona will likely be away on international duty.
The match does provide an opportunity for fans to see Arriola who has proven to be an exciting talent since getting out of the shadow of the LA Galaxy and could well be a future US National Team star.
Xolos have had an incredible run from the second division in 2010 to winning the Apertura in 2012 in an impressive performance to rise to the top of the Mexican league, where they have been a solid performer since.
In an expected but not ideal move the Scorpions are counting this match as one of the extra tickets, although they won't be selling two separate tickets they are asking season ticket holders to use both tickets, which could mean that an excess of season ticket holders show up as they now have two tickets instead of one to the match.
The big issue that might put off non-Season Ticket Holders is the price of the double header with ticket prices being heavily inflated for this match and fans not able to buy the normal NASL priced ticket just to watch the NASL match.
