    Orozco praises Santos’ play

    TORREON, Mexico – Goalkeeper Jonathan Orozco believes that his Santos side has demonstrated the most consistency of any Liga MX club during the 2017 Clausura.

     The Guerreros are currently sixth in the table with 25 points, having lost just once in 16 games, which includes a league-high 10 draws.

    “Not a lot of credit is given to what Santos has done, but it has been one of the most consistent,” said Orozco in a press conference Wednesday.  “We don’t have the points that Tijuana (28) or Monterrey (27) have, but we have been superior to the rest of the teams.”

    With a berth in the playoffs already assured, Santos will be looking to end the regular season in strong fashion at home against Toluca on Sunday and then make a bid for its sixth Mexican league crown.

    History could be in the making should Santos reach the final, as it would become the first Mexican club to qualify for six editions of the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League.

    For Orozco & Co., however, taking care of business against first-place Toluca comes first.

    “We set out to reach 30 points, but the draws will not let us reach it,” the 30-year-old custodian concluded.  “The 28 that can be earned are very good.  They would speak of a good season.  We are neither looking nor waiting for a specific opponent in the Liguilla.  The one we face we have to beat them.”
