A year-and-a-half after securing promotion to the top tier in Mexico, Club Tijuana have become champions of Mexico.
Xolos put a dream end to their impressive Apertura campaign by beating Toluca, 4-1, on aggregate after a 2-0 victory in the second leg of the Liga MX finals on Sunday. Tijuana winning the Mexican championship not only caps off the club’s remarkable rapid rise, but also gives Xolos a berth in the upcoming Copa Libertadores tournament.
Tijuana’s two U.S. Men’s National Team players contributed in the championship-clinching triumph on Sunday night. Edgar Castillo started and went the distance while Joe Corona played 67 minutes before being subbed off. Fellow American Greg Garza did not dress.
What do you think of Xolos winning the Mexican championship? How do you see them doing in the Copa Libertadores? Think Castillo, Corona and Garza will all stay with the club during the upcoming transfer window?
