TFC hoping experience in Mexico will pay off against Tigres

The Reds played two pre-season games in Mexico last month, falling 6-3 to Club America before defeating Cruz Azul 4-1.

"I think its valuable for our group to play a Mexican League opponent," said coach Greg Vanney.

The Reds then opened their Major League Soccer regular season with a 2-0 loss to the visiting Columbus Crew on Saturday.

One of the top clubs in Liga MX, Monterrey-based Tigres has won the league championship six times, including last year, and currently sits fourth in the standings after 10 games.

One of the Tigres' biggest threats is French forward Andre-Pierre Gignac — a player Toronto is well aware of.

Some times they'll use him as a second forward and (Enner) Valencia will stay high and he'll kind of threaten space and Gignac will drop as a midfielder and arrive in the box.

The Reds are on a bye in MLS this week before returning to action on March 17 against the Impact in Montreal.
