Torreon, Mexico, Aug 18 (efe-epa).- Santos Laguna, winner of Mexico's most recent league title, will host Tigres UANL in Matchday 5 action here Sunday in the 2018-2019 Liga MX's Apertura championship.

Salvador Reyes' side will try to leverage its home field advantage at Corona Stadium and also capitalize on the absence of two suspended Tigres players, Guido Pizarro and Javier Aquino.

Tigres UANL has lost it last two games, while the loss of those two players leaves the club depleted in midfield.

Santos eliminated Tigres in the quarter-finals of the 2017-2018 season's Clausura playoffs and went on to win the title.

With a record of three wins, no draws and one loss, Santos is fifth in the Apertura standings with nine points, just one behind leader Pumas de la UNAM.

Tigres has six points and is in eighth place with a record of 2-0-2.

Guadalajara kicked off Matchday 5 by defeating Veracruz 2-0 Friday for its first win of the Apertura championship, while Atlas' woes continued in a 1-0 loss at home to third-place Morelia.

Five games are on tap for Saturday: Cruz Azul versus Leon, last-place Pachuca v. Lobos BUAP, Necaxa v. Puebla, Queretaro v. America and Monterrey v. Pumas.

On Sunday, Toluca will host Tijuana in the afternoon game, while Santos and Tigres will square off in the evening.
