FC Juarez: 2 Matches Left To Avoid Multi-Million Dollar Fine
Bravos de FC Juarez have 2 regular season matches to go in this nightmarish 2021 clausura season of the Liga BBVA. The Bravos are currently in next to last in the general standings table, 17th place and have been mathematically eliminated from reaching the playoffs.
The only thing that the Bravos are playing for to finish out the season, is to avoid a 2.6 million dollar fine/penalty for finishing in second to last place in the average points per game table.
Fortunately for the Bravos, Xolos de Tijuana has been in poor form recently and they’ve got themselves into the fight for that very same spot.
Simply put, if the Bravos win their last two matches of the season (on the road against Queretaro on Sunday and against Toluca at home next week) and Xolos lose their two last matches (at home against Necaxa this weekend and on the road against Cruz Azul next weekend) Xolos would be on the hook for the 2.6 million dollar fine.
Other results, with wins, losses and draws will require that the calculators be pulled out to figure out who has a better points per match average.
After their most recent defeat against Leon on Monday night, the Bravos did not return to the Borderland. Instead FC Juarez traveled from Leon, Guanajuato to the city of Queretaro to prepare there over the course of this week ahead of the Sunday evening match.
Kickoff is scheduled for 630pm MST. The match will be televised nationally on TUDN, DirecTV ch. 464/Spectrum ch. 466.
