Toluca have only won once in their last nine home games in all competitions. This is why the men led by Enrique Meza are struggling mightily in the Liga MX in thirteenth place and three points off the pace for a spot in the Liguilla. Their home form has been atrocious if you look at their finishing and their away form is their saving grace from not being out of the Liguilla race and Copa Lib.  

Prime example was their tremendous comeback win against Boca at La Bombonera. They became the first Mexican side to win at that stadium since Cruz Azul did back in 2001 in the Copa Libertadores final. They looked gears faster while Sinha just was a rejuvenated version of himself.  Then came Nacional and Barcelona to the Mexiquense capital and took points from their stadium. Nacional willed themselves to a 3-2 win while Barcelona came away with a 1-1.
