FC Juarez Fighting For First Place This Weekend
The Bravos de FC Juarez and their fan base are looking forward to tomorrow night's match probably more than any game that this franchise has played in its young history. The team from the Borderland will play host to Correcaminos (the Roadrunners) on Saturday night at Benito Juarez Olympic Stadium at 7 p.m.
At stake is the possibility to move into first place in the standings of the Ascenso MX League.
The Bravos currently find themselves in second place of the 2015 Apertura Season with 17 points. They are just one point behind first place Lobos Buap (18).
FC Juarez has not known defeat in their last five games and are looking to continue this streak on Saturday night. By the time the ball rolls on the pitch on Saturday, FC Juarez will know if it indeed can move into first place as Lobos Buap will play its week 10 match Friday night against Leones Negros de Guadalajara on Friday night.
As for the rival that the Bravos will face, Correcaminos is in next to last place (15th) with only seven points on the season. Still, this is a team that is not to be taken lightly. They won their last game with their new coach Jose Trevino and are starting a streak of their own.
The importance of this game is evident as a majority of the practices this week were held behind close doors with no media access.
