MEXICO: Finals set, Tijuana home Sat.

The Federacion Mexicana de Futbol on Monday confirmed dates and times for this week's championship games, and Club Tijuana will learn its fate Saturday.

The Primera Division's Clausura championship, the one that most matters, will be played Thursday and Sunday, with Morelia home for the first leg and Mexico City-based Pumas UNAM host of the second leg.

Tijuana, which is bidding for a spot in the Primera Division, meets Irapuato on Wednesday and Saturday in the Liga de Ascenso's promotion final. Tijuana won the fall Apertura title but lost to Irapuato in last week's spring Clausura final.

The first leg is in Irapuato, and Tijuana will be home, at Estadio Caliente a few miles south of the border, for Saturday's 1 p.m. finale.
