Saturday evening in round 17 of the Clausura, Tigres UANL will host Tijuana at the Estadio Universitario. The most recent encounter between these two sides saw Tijuana grab all three points at home in a 2-0 victory back in November. Head-to-head, Tigres do own this matchup winning on 14 occasions and drawing eight times in their last 26 meetings.

Tigres UANL is coming off a barnburner of a match last weekend, winning the high-scoring affair 5-2. The win halted their winless run of four games in all competitions. The offensive  outburst was the second time in the calendar year that Tigres were able to find the score sheet five times.

Meanwhile, for Tijuana, they are coming off a 3-1 victory over Puebla. With the win, it was the first time in the 2024 Clausura that Tijuana was able to win in consecutive matches. The 2024 campaign is officially over La Jauría after this weekend as they sit nine points back from the last playoff spot.

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

Tigres UANL vs. Tijuana Betting Predictions at DraftKings

Tigres UANL Preview

Up on attack last weekend Marcelo Flores had a breakout performance in his fifth start in 2024. The 20-year-old lingered in around the opposition's six-yard box all match long and it paid off as he collected his first career Liga MX hat trick. Getting starting minutes in continental play, erupting on the scoresheet last weekend, with the regular season finale on the horizon should be enough for the gaffer Robert Siboldi to include him in the starting 11.

Another young promising prospect on Tigres is Johnathan Herrera. The 22-year-old appeared in 60 minutes of play in Tigres' 5-2 win over Necaxa. The striker breached one past the keeper with the only shot he registered in the match. He also completed 84 percent of his passes going 31-for-37.

Tijuana Preview

The 2024 Clausura has been a disappointment for Tijuana missing out on the playoffs, but Efrain Alvarez has adapted nicely to Liga MX life. The ex-LA Galaxy man joined Tijuana in September 2023, and since then in 17 appearances, he’s hit the back of the net three times including a marker last weekend. Alvarez took part in 81 minutes of play adding an assist to his account finishing with four shots towards the target.

Subbing on in the 63rd minute, midfielder Kevin Castaneda made an immediate impact off the bench. 11 minutes later into the match, he converted one past the keeper registering his first of the Clausura campaign. In 719 minutes of action in 2024, Castaneda has stockpiled 34 shots with 10 of them hitting the mark.

Tigres UANL vs. Tijuana - My Pick

Tigres have all the motivation entering this contest, a top-six finish would assure them of avoiding playing an extra match in the play-in round. Getting knocked out of the CONCACAF Champions Cup might be a blessing in disguise for Tigres as now they can solely focus on domestic play and benefit from playing once a week.

On the other hand, Tijuana has nothing to gain from any result on Saturday besides their pride. This doesn’t mean they will roll over for Tigres, they will be playing for jobs on the line. That said Tigres should be able to get past Tijuana in this one while lighting up the scoresheet. The average combined goals in Tijuana road matches is 2.88 goals per game. Tigres are in good form at home displaying their scoring abilities averaging just over two goals scored per game.
