Two stars injured as Tigres aim for Concachampions quarter-final

We will be without Andre-Pierre Gignac and captain Juninho against Herediano tonight as we aim to secure a berth in the quarter-finals of the CONCACAF Champions League for the second successive season.

Gignac will miss the game with a slight thigh strain, while Juninho is suffering from back pain.

Elsewhere, it’s expected Tuca will name a strong side in a bid to avoid a potential slip-up and a humiliating exit from the competition.

A Draw is Enough

We go into the match with six points from three games, two ahead of the Costa Rican outfit.

A draw would be enough to see us progress to the knockout stages, but a defeat would send us out. Of course, we could have already assured qualification with a draw in the last match against Plaza Amador, but we lost 1-0 in a surprise defeat in Panama.

We are winless in four and have lost the last three in all competitions. A win tonight is essential to restore some confidence and belief back into the side ahead of the Clasico on October 29th.
