Another Unsatisfying Tie For FC Juarez
Bravos de FC Juarez once again were only able to muster a scoreless draw on Friday night against Murcielagos FC in Los Mochis, Sinaloa in week 4 of the 2016 Apertura season of the Ascenso MX League. The result gives FC Juarez 3 points out of 12 disputed thus far.
This result keeps FC Juarez in 13th place in the general standings table, 4 points out of the playoff zone.
This is most definitely not the start to the first 4 games that the Bravos envision. Especially after their off season acquisitions that resulted in them having the highest payroll in the Ascenso MX league for the second year in a row...that's every year the the Bravos have existed.
This most recent tie has to be extra disappointing for the team from the Borderland especially since they played with a one man advantage since the 37th minute when Hilario Tristan received a red card for deliberately stepping on a Bravos defender. However, despite having this advantage for the remaining 53 minutes of the match, the team from the Borderland failed to put the ball in the back of the net.
In the final analysis, it is safe the say that this tie has to have tasted like a defeat for FC Juarez on Friday night. FC Juarez fans have taken to social media to express their frustrations with this team and have started to question the technical scheme of head coach Sergio Orduna on the field of play while others have question his continuation with club.
The offensive production for FC Juarez is not there, they have only scored 2 goals in 4 games while having allowed 3 goals. The defensive numbers are good that have won the possession battle in all 4 games, but the offensive numbers certainly dont.
Up next for FC Juarez is a home game next Saturday at Benito Juarez Olympic Stadium against Jaiba Brava from Tampico, Madero. Kickoff is scheduled for 7pm.
