The present of Tigres
In Guard1anes 2020, the Auriazules are eighth with 14 points, a place that, although it would guarantee them a repechage, remembering that in this tournament there will be 12 classified, given the demand and template available, in the board there is discontent, as well as in the hobby.
About, Inge emphasizes that nobody has a safe position and it is clear that this leader’s hand does not tremble to make a decision of such magnitude, because in 2003 it did, after the ridicule of Tigres in the Semifinal of the Clausura against Rayados, in which he was beaten 4-1 in the Ida in the Volcano and therefore the 2-1 in favor in the Vuelta did not reach him; in this way the cats were eliminated in the first series of Liguilla where the regios were measured.
