On Saturday night fireworks are set to go off on the pitch as one of the fiercest rivalries in club soccer will take place at the Estadio BBVA as Monterrey will welcome Tigres UANL in enemy territory. In the previous 41 Clásico Regiomontano clashes, Tigres own the slight advantage winning on 15 occasions and splitting the points 13 times.

Monterrey has fallen to third place in the Clausura after losing on the road to Cruz Azul. A match they were thoroughly outplayed conceding 16 shots on net in last weekend's 2-1 defeat. Throughout the campaign, the Rayados have maintained the top spot in the table, but after back-to-back defeats in league play, they currently sit one point back from first overall.

Meanwhile Tigres UANL, they are coming off a 3-0 drubbing in a losing effort to Pachuca last weekend. With the loss, they dropped down to seventh place in the table snapping their four-game unbeaten streak in all competitions. Saturday night's defeat was the first time since March 9th that Los Tigres de México was blanked on the scoresheet.

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

Monterrey Preview

Fernando Ortiz's men at the moment are firing on all cylinders when it comes to finding the back of the net. The Rayados are getting goal contributions from every corner of their locker room with nine different players penciling in their names on the scoresheet. Of the 24 goals scored by Monterrey in 2024, only once have they managed to score a set-piece marker, making them one of the lowest-scoring sides in Liga MX when it comes to non-open play goals.

Earning his second start of the campaign, Rodrigo Aguirre will look to insert himself into the lineup regularly. The 29-year-old helped set up the only goal Monterrey was able to produce last weekend. In 90 minutes of play, Aguirre finished with zero shots on net and completed 71 percent of passes going 10-for-14.

Like their counterparts, Tigres also have nine different players on this current roster that have buried the ball in the net. As a club, they rank sixth overall averaging 1.6 goals scored per game in the Clausura. In a three-way tie Francisco Cordova, Juan Brunetta and Nicholas Ibanez all share the club lead in goals with four a piece.

Since taking over the starting keeper position midway through the campaign, Carlos Rodriguez is expected to make his fourth straight start in the Clausura. The 35-year-old has faced a total of 28 shots, conceding on eight occasions while only grabbing one clean sheet. With a 71.4 percent save percentage, these are beatable numbers for Monterrey to get past Rodriguez.

Monterrey vs. Tigres UANL - My Pick

In most cases, the trend is our friend but, in this scenario, we have to throw out all the tendencies that history has shown. Since both clubs will be partaking in their second leg of the quarterfinals in the CONCACAF Champions Cup this week, we have to go in the opposite direction. Recent memory has shown that Clásico Regiomontano has gone towards a low-scoring cagey affair. Midweek clashes present the opportunity for the weekend matches to open up due to fatigued players and a breakdown in play leads to more errors. Coming into the hotly contested affair, both clubs have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six matches in all competitions. Both clubs are top-six scoring sides, think we should see some goals getting each keeper on the pitch Saturday night in the Clásico Regiomontano.
