The main event on Saturday evening will see Tigres travel to the cathedral of Mexican soccer the Stadio Azteca taking on Club America. This clash between these sides sees them separated by three points apart in the table with Club America in front. Head-to-head in the last 43 encounters in all competitions, Club America has won 17 times while Tigres has captured 12 wins and points were shared 14 times. In recent times the tale of the tape has been dominated by one side, with Las Águilas having their way with nine victories in their last 11 meetings against Tigres. The most famous victory took place back in December when Club America celebrated the 2023 Apertura Liga MX title.

The Mexico City-based club is riding a three-game unbeaten run in domestic play, only suffering one defeat thus far in the 2024 Clausura. Last Saturday the club squashed Atlas on the road breaking out and finding the back of the net five times.

On the other hand, UANL suffered a 2-1 defeat to Toluca over the weekend snapping their two-game unbeaten run in Liga MX. The 2023 Clausura Champions were in firm control for half of the match until Francisco Cordova was shown a straight red card. Toluca took advantage of being up by a man and they never looked back securing three points to bump Tigres one spot in the table to sixth place.

Club America vs Tigres UANL Prediction

Club America vs. Tigres UANL Prediction

Club America

Up top on the front foot, both Julián Quinones and Henry Martin lead the way on the scoresheet with 4 goals a piece. Between the star striking duo, Quinones is the more lethal striker Tigres will have to watch out for. Per 90 minutes the 26-year-old Colombian is averaging 3.24 shots, placing him in the upper echelon of the competition.

Heavily linked to depart to La Liga in the winter window, central midfielder Alvaro Fidalgo has been raising eyebrows with technical abilities. The Spaniard is a vital piece in the middle of the pitch as he has appeared in 810 minutes of the 2024 Clausura competition. Averaging 90.2 percent successful passing completion and winning 80 percent of tackles, the match will dictate through his potent play.

Tigres UANL

André-Pierre Gignac is aging like a fine wine, recording three goals in the Clausura. The 38-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down which is bad news for the opposition as he is still a valuable member of the squad. Gignac didn’t see any action in the Tigre's last fixture, but in his two previous appearances, he was able to get past the keeper in back-to-back games.

Just as devastating as Gignac can be for his competitors, Nicolas Ibanez is on another level at the moment. If the Argentine is not busy registering goals, his setup ability is in elite form tied for third in Liga MX with four assists. That is what makes the striker so dangerous he can burn you either way by scoring or setting up the perfect pass to connect to his teammates.

Club America vs. Tigres UANL - My Pick

All signs are pointing towards to back of the home side in this affair. As previously stated with the recent dominance in the head-to-head department it’s hard to go against Club America.

With the continental competition taking place this week Club America are in a much better spot only having to travel to Guadalajara meanwhile, Tigres are off to Orlando.

Revenge could be on the mind for UANL trying to avenge their Final phase Apertura 2023 defeat to Club America losing 4-1 on aggregate. Revenge situational spots don’t always translate to victories. Back the home side in the encounter Saturday evening.
