Half Time: Tigres at Chivas USA

Chivas USA 0 Tigres 1

Chivas USA have pressed, but haven’t really broken down a young, but well-organized Tigres team.

The closest Chivas USA came to an equalizer was when Maykel Galindo flicked on a short ball from Eduardo Lillingston that bounced off Tigres goalkeeper Aaron Fernandez. Paulo Nagamura had done well to thread the ball through to Lillingston, but Chivas USA has lacked the final incisive ball against what is essentially a Tigres reserve team. The Mexicans are keeping numbers behind the ball and looking for the quick break.

Each team has just one shot on target and Chivas USA goalkeeper Zach Thornton has yet to make a save.

BTW, the Chicago Fire, who Chivas USA play Tuesday in SuperLiga, beat San Luis 1-0 on a Brian McBride goal in the early game.
