Tigres vs. Cruz Azul: TV channel, live stream, team news, kickoff time, & match preview
Tigres fell short in a top-of-the table clash with Toluca last weekend, and will try to bounce back Saturday when they host Cruz Azul.
The defending champions fell 1-0 to the Red Devils at the Estadio Nemesio Diez, dropping down to fourth place in the process.
Facing a wounded giant like Tigres is a daunting prospect for Cruz Azul, which badly needs a win at the Estadio Universitario, known as El Volcan, to keep its season alive.

Betting & Match Odds
Tigres are the favorites to win the match with dabblebet pricing it at 4/5. Cruz Azul are rated 10/3 to get the road win and a draw is available at 23/10.
It's now or never if Cruz Azul is going to save its season, but the Estadio Universitario is not the ideal location for an away team in desperate need of three points.
Pedro Caixinha's men picked up a much-needed three points in a 1-0 win over Lobos BUAP last weekend, but Saturday will bring a considerably more difficult task in the form of Tigres.
The defending champions were frustrated last weekend in a 1-0 defeat at first-place Toluca, despite controlling most of the game.
The defeat sent Tigres down into fourth place, and Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti's side will be hoping for a bounce-back performance against Cruz Azul.
Tigres have won six and drawn one of their last seven home matches, meaning a win for La Maquina appears an unlikely prospect.
