Club Tijuana returns home after a big away win at Cruz Azul last weekend that shot them up to the top of the 2016 Apertura table on goal differential. In that match, Atlanta United loanee, Hector Villalba, made his Xolos debut as a substitute in the 83rd minute.
It was a rather uneventful debut for the Argentine, but it was enough to get his feet wet at the Liga MX level. As he gets acclimated to his new surroundings, his minutes and opportunities should increase.
A home match against Club León is up next and could offer the 22-year-old a chance to play at the Estadio Caliente for the first time since joining Xolos on loan.
Obviously, since Tijuana are clicking on all cylinders and are top of the table, not many changes will be made by manager Miguel Herrera. Villalba will likely be in a reserve role once again, but perhaps he could get a bigger chunk of minutes in this one.
