Although most Tigres fans have openly admitted they would prefer to win the CONCACAF Champions League than the Clausura this spring, few could have imagined quite how disappointing the team would be in the league.
Sadly, a comparison against previous seasons reveals just how bad we’ve been.
Since the FMF rehashed the Liguilla qualification system at the turn of the decade, Tigres have only failed to qualify for the post-season twice – the 2012 Apertura and the 2014 Clausura.
In both of those unsuccessful campaigns, Tuca’s side had more points than in the current Clausura at the equivalent stage of the season.
We are currently 13th with 12 points from 11 games. After 11 games in both 2012 and 2014 we had 14 points. In both seasons, we finished two points off the side finishing in eighth place (Chivas and Leon respectively, 23 points each). It means the 2017 Clausura is now the side’s worst performance since the three groups format was abandoned.
Can we earn enough points in the final six games to qualify for the Liguilla? Let us know in the comments below.
