Liga MX Apertura leaders Club Tijuana return to action tonight as they head on the road and take on Necaxa. Xolos are unbeaten in the first five league matches of the season and look to stay on top against a team who sits at 16th in the table.
Hector “Tito” Villalba didn’t make it off the bench in the club’s last league match, but did start and play 70 minutes in the Copa MX at midweek. It’s a safe bet that the Atlanta United loanee will begin on the bench once again and it’s probably 50/50 whether he gets into the match or not.
It appears as if he’s currently behind U.S. international Paul Arriola on the substitute depth chart. It’s going to take some time for Tito to work his way up the pecking order and possibly into the starting lineup at some point in the future. He’s still working to get to full match fitness and it’s a long process if you aren’t getting the chance to consistently play.
We’ll be the comments if anything important happens. Join us.
