Tigres vs Morelia Liga MX Week 9 – March 2, 2013

The Tigres vs Morelia Liga MX 2013 match will be this Saturday, March 2, 2013 (8:00 PM EDT) at the Estadio Universitario in Monterrey. The still undefeated Tigres squad will face a solid Monarcas Morelia. Can Tuca Ferreti continue his team’s great streak?

Tigres has won 6 out of 8 matches, is still undefeated, possesses the #1 offense in the Liga MX (18 goals scored), and one of the best defenses (6 allowed). Overall, this is a great roster that is playing great soccer and is being led by one of Mexico’s greatest coaches. Furthermore, Tigres has the fortune of having the leagues hottest scorer, Tito Villa, who is averaging 1 goal per game (8 scored so far); unfortunately, he is out injured.

No one has been able to defeat Tigres, and last week, Cruz Azul was yet another team that was defeated by this powerful squad. Tigres went to Mexico City and came out of the Estadio Azul with the 3 points. This team is just 6 points away from clinching a playoff spot, although that is the bare minimum this team wants. With the way Tigres has been playing though 8 matches so far, anything other than the Clausura 2013 title would be a disappointment.

Morelia is currently sitting in 9th place with 11 points, just outside the playoff spots. This team has been solid, yet not outstanding, and has a decent shot at making the playoffs. However, their away record this season is atrocious: 3 losses and just 1 win. Add to these stats the fact that Morelia will play at the home stadium of the only undefeated team left in the Liga MX, and you can see the Monarcas have a slim chance of winning.

Tigres vs Morelia Prediction

The Tigres vs Morelia match, will be an exciting encounter that will feature the best team in the Liga MX. Tigres is the only undefeated team left, and has shown no signs of slowing down. Morelia has struggled in its away games, and will have an extremely difficult challenge at the Estadio Universitario. The Tigres vs Morelia match will end in a 2-0 home win for Tigres, Tigres is red-hot, and playing well, Morelia will be outclassed.
