Record 36,000 fans attend Tigres training ahead of second leg

Watch as comedian and noted Tigres fan Rob Schneider conducts an interview in 'Spanglish' after the first leg of the Liga MX Apertura finals.

MONTERREY, Mexico -- Tigres fans broke the Mexican record for number of fans attending a training session on Saturday, with 36,000 showing up at Estadio Universitario ahead of Sunday's Liga MX final second leg against local rival Monterrey.

The club announced on Friday that their final training ahead of the game against Rayados would be open to the public and fans responded by showing up in numbers that are higher than the average attendance this season for all but two Liga MX clubs -- Tigres and Monterrey.

Monterrey had set the previous record of 31,815 for a training session last May, highlighting a rivalry that is regarded as one of Mexico's fiercest.

The first leg of the first-ever Clasico Regio final ended 1-1 on Thursday in Estadio Universitario, with the return game in Monterrey's Estadio BBVA Bancomer.

Tigres are looking to win their sixth Liga MX title, while Monterrey currently have four.
