Atlas vs Club Tijuana Predictions and Picks
Club Tijuana’s 2021 Apertura season is all but over.
After earning just one win in their first 15 games of the tournament, Tijuana are now officially out of the running for the Liga MX playoffs.
It has been a disaster of a season that has not only featured a current spot at the bottom of the league table, but also a departure for manager Robert Dante Siboldi.
Tijuana have also claimed a meager tally of two points away from home.
Up against an in-form Atlas, the visitors will likely struggle for most of the 90 minutes.
As for Atlas, they’ll be looking to soon solidify a place within Liga MX’s top four.
Atlas for the win (-210)
You can’t really find a more mismatched Liga MX match from Week 16 than Atlas vs Tijuana.
Atlas are 2nd in the league table and have rarely made many missteps this season.
They only have one loss in their last four matches, and as seen last weekend, they were brilliant during Sunday’s 6-2 thrashing of San Luis.
On the other hand, Tijuana are a mess.
No team have allowed more goals than them so far this season, and heading into Thursday, they’ll be stumbling into the mid-week encounter with a seven-game winless streak.
With their season all but over, their remaining matches will wrap up a dismal year that has emerged as a forgettable one for the club.
Tijuana Have Been Chaotic In Recent Months
It’s not just this season.
In the previous 2021 Clausura tournament, Tijuana failed to qualify for the playoffs because of their underwhelming 5-5-7 (W-T-L) record.
Looking back even further, they also failed to qualify for the playoffs in the 2020 Apertura competition as well.
We would have to go all the way back to the 2019 Clausura to find the last time they earned an invitation into the postseason.
This problem is nothing new for Tijuana.
As written about beforehand, their lack of long-term trust in managers and players has constantly put them in a state of flux.
Atlas Are Coming Off A Massive Victory
Atlas not only claimed three points last weekend but also made a statement.
By the 74th minute of their latest match against San Luis, Atlas had already scored six times in their 6-2 victory.
It was an astonishing feat and a warning for others who have yet to take them as serious title contenders.
Atlas are gaining an exciting amount of ground and will be charging into the mid-week game with recent standout performances from key names like Jairo Torres, Hugo Nervo, and Luis Reyes.
And unfortunately for the incoming visitors, Tijuana won’t be expected to have its full roster available.
Two Starters Could Be Missing For Tijuana
At the time of writing, an international friendship between Mexico and Ecuador in the United States has yet to kick off.
Tijuana’s Jonathan Orozco and Victor Guzman were included in the call-up and may not be back in time for Thursday’s Liga MX match.
Both have been vital to the bordertown team, and without their star goalkeeper or up-and-coming defender, they’ll be incredibly vulnerable in their own half of the pitch.
This is good news for an Atlas side that is also coming off of a six-goal game.
And even if Orozco or Guzman don’t play, there are no guarantees that they’ll then be immediately available the next day for a game in Guadalajara.
