Tigres UANL vs. Necaxa Betting Prediction

Tigres UANL Preview

In his first full season with Tigres, on aggregate Juan Brunetta built up a solid resume. In 25 matches between the last years Apertura and Clausura, the 27-year-old hit the back of the net on seven occasions. He also amassed five assists which was the highest amount on the Tigres squad. In last weekend's Supercopa de la Liga MX, Brunetta including a goal also finished with six total shots with three reaching the target.

The ageless wonder Andre-Pierre Gignac will be expected to put up towering numbers on the stat sheet once more. In 937 minutes played in the 2024 Clasura, Gignac managed to acquire six goals to his name. The Tigres legend was no stranger to the stat sheet across all competitive matches played in 2023/24 stockpiling 25 goals representing his club 48 times.

Between the posts, Ezequiel Unsain had subpar 2024 Clausura with Los Rayos. In 19 matches he appeared in between the playoffs and the regular season the keeper conceded 32 goals. From the penalty spot, he failed to stop three attempts. Unsain could be starring down at yet another busy season in the net as he faced 90 shots towards him.

Diber Cambindo carried the load up front with his nine goals to account during the most recent Clausura season. The 28-year-old ended the campaign on high creating six goal contributions as in many games. Per 90 minutes Cambindo averaged 3.77 shots, placing him as one of the most active forwards on this roster.

Tigres UANL vs. Necaxa - My Pick

It was not long ago that these two sides lit up the scoresheet in the matches they participated in. Necaxa blazed the trail in both teams to score market with 82 percent of their matches and saw each team’s netminder get cracked which was the highest in Liga MX last season. For Tigres, they had solid trends also with 65 percent of their contests seeing both team’s score. Ezequiel Unsain, Necaxa keeper didn’t possess a strong save percentage stopping less than 65 percent of the shots he faced. The opening match of the new competition could see Tigres fail to be organizationally structured on defense making them prone to conceding a goal.
