Torres Nilo joins Vargas on the sidelines as Tigres chase Liguilla

We will be without both Jorge Torres Nilo and Eduardo Vargas for tomorrow’s decisive game against Queretaro.

Vargas suffer knee ligament damage and was ruled out during the week, but there were hopes left-back Torres Nilo would recover from the hamstring problem he picked up in training on Thursday.

However, as the team departed from Monterrey airport today, there were no signs of the 29-year-old. The club later confirmed he had stayed at home for further treatment.

It means we might see new signing Luis Advincula return to the starting XI. The Peruvian has recovered from his injury and was on the bench for last week’s 3-0 win over Tijuana at El Volcan.

The clash against Queretaro kicks off at 5pm local time. A win will see us qualify for the Liguilla as either the sixth, seventh, or eighth seed, depending on the America vs Pachuca and Santos Laguna vs Toluca games. The Santos game is on Sunday.
