The rivalry between Chivas And tigers gives us another chapter in the end of Clausura 2023. And it is that both sets have seen their faces on two previous occasions in this case; in the van Closing 2017 and to define the Champion of champions of that same year.

The record marks a tie between these two teams in the final. First, Chivas beat those of the ‘U’ in the 2017 Clausura final, but two months later it would be Tigres who would even the cards by winning the title of Champion of Champions.

In GOAL We take a look at what has happened throughout history in the Chivas vs Tigres finals:


First leg: Tigres 2-2 Chivas

The series looked set in favor of Chivas after the under Matías Almeyda (at the time) took the lead 0-2 with scores from Alan Pulido and Rodolfo Pizarro. Tigres’ goalkeeper Nahuel Guzmán fouled the rebounds ahead of the two plays that culminated in a goal.

Though the rojiblancos dominated possession for most of the game, two plays were enough for Gignac to score his double and decide everything at Akron Stadium.

Second leg: Chivas 2-1 Tigres

For the second time, Chivas had taken the lead through goals from Alan Pulido and ‘Gallito’ Vázquez, but this time Rodolfo Cota was indispensable so that Tigres could not score in the first half.

After several attempts by the Felinos in the complementary part, Sosa scored the discount goal in the last minutes. And while the college fans are still claiming a foul in the penalty area that would have sent the game into extra time, the truth is that Álvarez was scored offside at the time.

In this way, Chivas achieved his 12th Liga MX title by beating Tigres 4-3.


Tigres became a two-time Champion of Champions, as the Felinos themselves were the last to win this title in 2016 against Pachuca.

This bet in Carson, California was won by Tigres with the lone goal by Chilean ‘Edu’ Vargas. The final score of 1–0 was misleading as Tuca’s had been infinitely superior throughout the match; between the many failures of the ‘university’ attackers and Cota’s amazing saves, Chivas was saved from a scandalous victory.
