Thursday night will see one of the feistiest matches in the Mexican game as we have a battle of the Clasico Regiomontano in the quarterfinal stage. The first leg will see Tigres UANL host Monterrey at Estadio Universitario. This will be the 136th edition of the Clasico del Norte, with Tigres boasting a slight advantage in the head-to-head department winning 49 times and drawing on 41 occasions. The most recent encounter saw the derby play to a thrilling finish as both clubs shared the points in a 3-3 draw less than a month ago.

Tigres UANL head into this meeting on a bit of a roll finding themselves unbeaten in their last three domestic league contests. Tigres lit up the score sheet in the competition registering the second-highest number of goals bagging 34. Only three times during the Clausura season Tigres failed to find the back of the net.

Meanwhile, Monterrey enters this contest in a bit of a funk as they have managed to collect two wins in their last seven matches in all competitions. Their most recent outing saw them get eliminated from the CONCACAF Champions Cup, losing 3-1 at home to the Columbus Crew. In the Clausura table, Monterrey finished one point ahead of their competitors with 34 points registered on the season.

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

Tigres UANL vs. Monterrey Prediction - Juan Brunetta

Tigres UANL vs. Monterrey Betting Predictions

Tigres UANL Preview

In his first season with Tigres, Juan Brunetta put together an impressive campaign. During his 17 games played the 26-year-old found the back of the net seven times while amassing four assists. Looking to duplicate his most recent outing from April 27th, Brunetta collected a goal and assist while finishing the match with the most chances created with four.

Always seemingly to shine the brightest in the biggest moments, showing no signs of slowing down is 38-year-old Andre-Pierre Gignac. The wily veteran capped off the 2024 Clausura with five goals in 757 minutes played. In all competitions played Gicnac has found his name inked on the scorekeeper's list in his last seven appearances either collecting a goal or an assist.

Monterrey Preview

Listed as doubtful for the first leg, Right-Back Erick Aguirre will be missed if he is unable to participate due to a nagging thigh issue. Appearing in over 1000 minutes played, the 27-year-old firm play saw him successfully win 25 tackles which was rated in the upper echelon at his position in Liga MX. Aguirre has yet to compete in a full 90 minutes of play since the last installment of the Clasico Regiomontano on April 13th.

Leading his side after the end of the regular season is Sergio Canales, hitting the back of the net seven times. The 33-year-old will look to rebound after a dreadful performance last week against Columbus. Failing to hit the target on two shots, he went 24-for-32 in completed accurate passes.

Tigres UANL vs. Monterrey - My Pick

Not only will we see fireworks off the pitch in this fierce rivalry, but on the field, there should be fireworks going off as the challengers in this fixture should get on the scoreboard. Failing to keep a clean sheet recently has been an issue for both sides, for Tigres it’s been 10 straight contests meanwhile for Monterrey it’s been 12 consecutive matches. In 90 minutes of play, both clubs should be able to combine for three goals minimum. These squads are loaded with lethal attacking players, we shouldn’t see a cagey playoff-type of affair. Wager on the over 2.5 goals in this highly anticipated Clasico Regiomontano.
