Liga MX Femenil has its classic top teams. Tigres, Club América, Chivas and Monterrey are all expected to win matches, and win them in dominant fashion. However, recently, one team has been sneakily collecting wins on a consistent basis.
Club Tijuana Femenil is currently riding a five-game unbeaten streak, with four wins and one draw. In the last five games, Tijuana earned a tough point against Monterrey, while beating UNAM Pumas, Toluca, Santos Laguna and, now, Mazatlán. Their last loss was on Aug. 11, in a 3-2 drop against Club León.
Mazatlán is a bottom table team, but Pumas and Toluca are middle table teams, who are fluctuating week in and week out from playoff spots. Mónica Alvarado scored the first goal against Mazatlán in the 46th minute, going unmarked in the box and easily putting a header past goalkeeper Claudia Lozoya.
Daniela Espinosa has been a vision for Tijuana, especially after the club saw star forward Renae Cuéllar leave early into regular-season play. She has scored three goals in 10 games, including a penalty in Week 10.
Tijuana has, on paper, two easy matches coming up against Atlas and Atlético San Luis. In Week 13, though, Tigres is on the docket, and after the draw against Monterrey, there is no ‘clear-cut’ winner on paper.
Tijuana will finish the month of October with Pachuca, Cruz Azul and FC Juárez, before a regular-season finale against Puebla.
