Tigres received a welcome boost this afternoon with the news that both Jorge Torres Nilo and Alberto Acosta should be fit for the second leg of the Liguilla final in Guadalajara on Sunday.
Acosta missed last night’s dramatic 2-2 draw, while Torres Nilo has played no part in the Liguilla following an injury at the end of the regular season.
Neither were deemed fit enough for a place on the bench at El Volcan in the first leg.
Luis Advincula played the game at left-back, but the right-footed full-back struggled to make an impact on the opposite flank.
Tuca replaced him with Damian with 18 minutes to go. The 38-year-old was instrumental in getting us back into the game, supplying the assist for the first of Gignac’s two goals.
