Atlas vs. Tigres UANL Prediction: Tigres Look To Remain Perfect

Friday evening will see Tigres UANL travel down to Estadio Jalisco to take on Atlas. In this meeting between the two sides, it’s been problematic for Atlas to secure a win as they have only defeated Tigres six times in the last 32 encounters. Their most recent affair saw both sides share the points in a 1-1 draw back in February during the Clausura campaign.

Atlas is arguably coming off the match of the weekend that saw four goals total after its completion in a 2-2 draw. Atlas saw goal contributions from Eduardo Aguirre in the 47th minute while Luis Reyes rescued a point for his side bagging one in the late stages. Los Rojinegros managed to amass 11 shots directed towards the goal with three hitting the target.

Meanwhile, Tigres are coming off a 1-0 victory over Necaxa that saw them control most of the 90 minutes. The ageless wonder André-Pierre Gignac registered the game's only goal from a penalty kick in the 19th minute. Los Tigres de México outshot their opponents 17 to 10 while retaining most of the ball possession with 57 percent.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favourite picks for Atlas vs. Tigres UANL.

Atlas vs. Tigres UANL Betting Prediction

Atlas Preview

It was a mixed-bag performance for the veteran defender Luis Reyes. The 33-year-old committed a foul that led to Juarez taking the 2-1 lead in the 72nd minute. Nine minutes later Reyes headed in the tying goal from close range redeeming himself from an earlier mistake. Aside from his foul that led to a go-ahead goal for Juarez, Reyes did play a solid match finishing amongst the highest percentage in duels won, recoveries and tackles won.

In his 30th game with Atlas, Eduardo Aguirre scored the first goal of the Apertura campaign for Los Rojinegros. The 25-year-old is a threat anytime he’s laces up his boots on the pitch as he bagged six goals in last season's tournament off 29 total shots. Enduring a long campaign in the Clausura, Aguirre will have to punch above his weight to carry Atlas as the team finished with the third-lowest amount of goals scored last year with 21.

Tigres UANL Preview

Helping Tigres achieve a clean-sheet victory was the sensational play from right-back Javier Aquino. In 90 minutes of play, the 34-year-old finished the match with the most tackles made with eight. Between ground and aerial duels won combined Aquino went 15-for-16. The veteran will be a key piece for this side going forward as his 373 appearances and counting with Tigres will help stabilize the backend once again.

Andre-Pierre Gignac was expected to be the focal point up front and he delivered once again. The 38-year-old Tigres legend opens his 2024 Apertura account with a goal. His lone marker in the 19th minute from the penalty spot was enough to carry Tigres to victory last weekend. He now has 213 goals in 383 appearances with Los Tigres de México, solidifying himself as one of the best strikers in this current Liga MX generation.

Atlas vs. Tigres UANL - My pick

Going back to the Clausura season the two combatants finished the year with identical trends when it came to both teams scoring. In 11 of 17 matches that involved Atlas or Tigres, they involved both teams scoring. Think we see these two teams find the back of the net on each other, as Atlas proved it can score its fair share from their opening match. Tigres playing on the road are more susceptible to conceding without playing in their home fortress. Atlas going back to last season have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 11. For Tigres, four of their last five competitive matches saw both teams getting on the score sheet.

Bet on both teams to score yes (-150) at bet365
