“We are looking forward to a tough match, we know that they are a strong team. They are recent champions whose off-season acquisitions were very good. We just came off of good performance against Club America a couple of days ago, and now we are here with that same intention, to play tomorrow night with that same intensity and seriousness and of course to win the game.”

Tena continued, “I hope a full stadium turns out as fans will be treated to a serious, intense match as Leon always puts on with they take the playing field.”
