With an eight-point cushion over ninth-placed Morelia, we are rapidly closing in on a place in the Liguilla.
There are six games remaining in the regular season. Even in the unlikely event that Morelia win their next three games, we could still wrap up qualification at home to Rayados at the end of October.
Tuca Ferretti knows that the finish line is in sight, but he has called on the team to remain focused, even if we book our place with several games to spare.
“If we keep going we might qualify soon,” he said. “But we mustn’t be complacent. We won’t change anything.”
He admitted it would give him a welcome chance to rest some players, however.
“Maybe it would let us protect some players. If they aren’t 100 percent we can give them a break, but the rest will keep playing.”

News earlier today suggested our boss will rotate the side for Wednesday night’s trip to Panama. According to reports, the majority of the first-team squad were given a light training session while those who are in line to play against Plaza Amador were given a more intense workout.
