Tigres have been dealt with a heavy blow before their semifinal match-up against Toluca. Their captain, Juninho, left training today with a rupture to his achilles tendon. The emblematic defender is set to miss around 4-6 months of action.

Juninho had been instrumental in Tigres’s 3-month undefeated run. In addition, he was the team’s top-scorer in the regular season.

Tigres is set to play Toluca on Thursday in the first-leg of their semifinal series.
