Mexico: New target for Gignac, Thauvin passer… All right for Blues of the Tigers

The Frenchman from Mexico was highlighted this Saturday, with an assist from Florian Thouvin and a goal for André-Pierre Gignac, on the occasion of the Tigres de Monterrey (3-0) win against Toluca.

The French colony in Mexico continues to do well. This Saturday, the Monterey Tigers took the lead in the closing tournament of the Mexican Championship thanks to a home win (3-0) over the Red Devils of Toluca. A success that owes much to their Blues was once again decisive: Florian Thouvin was a passer on the opener, while Andre-Pierre Gignac stopped scoring late in the game.

On the first goal, Thouvin made an offer to Juan Pablo Vigon, who had to adjust his shot to find the back of the net (58th). Minutes later, Gignac scored the third goal with a brilliant uncrossed header from six meters (71st), which earned him applause from across the stadium. With this 11th goal in 14 days, the former Marseille striker cemented his position as the championship’s top scorer.

Thanks to this win, Tigress are tied at the top of the table with Pachuca on points (32), but are currently ahead of “Tuzos” by a small head on goal difference (+13 against +14). A good omen, as there are only three games left to play in this closing tournament: they have already secured a spot in the Top 4, which is synonymous with reaching the final stage without going through the play-offs. They will be aiming for a league title there, which they have not won since the end of 2019.

The two Frenchmen are in full swing in any case: at 36 years old, Gignac, who arrived in Monterrey in 2015, continues to juggle counters and remains one of the best players in his league. He was joined last year by Florian Thouvin, who missed the start of the championship but is slowly taking the championship in his own hands, scoring three goals this season.
