The Tigers have reported three casualties ahead of their trip to Orlando to face New York City on Tuesday, when the Concachampions’ quarterfinals resume, where the next day America, which will not have Henry Martín for a positive test for Covid-19, will be measured with Atlanta United and Cruz Azul will do the same against Los Angeles FC.
Forwards Julián Quiñones, Patrick Ogama and midfielder Jordan Sierra are injured, Tigres reported, so they will arrive diminished – after Ulises Cardona leaves – for the second leg, in which they have a 1-0 lead.
Meanwhile, Martín has tested positive for Covid and is in isolation. The Eagles, who have a 3-0 lead, face Atlanta United on Wednesday.
The Coapa team also has several casualties due to infections, as before the announcement of those of Mauro Lainez and Rubén González, who join Emanuel Aguilera, Giovani dos Santos and Nicolás Benedetti for injury.
Cruz Azul, the third qualifier of the Mexican teams, in the interim technical direction after the resignation of Robert Dante Siboldi, will close Wednesday’s day against Los Angeles.
