This Saturday, March 31, 2018 (6:00 PM Pacific) Tigres UANL will host Leon at the Estadio Universitario for a game in the 13th round of matches in the Liga MX Clausura 2018. Both teams have potential to reach the playoffs and present an attractive style of play that should make for a very intriguing encounter.
Tigres UANL has been one of the better teams in the Liga MX Clausura 2018 currently in third place with 22 points. Los Felinos were surprisingly knocked out of the CONCACAF Champions League by Toronto FC and can now focus fully on adding another league title. Ricardo Ferretti has the team to do it as it is one of the better rosters in the Liga MX with players like Andre-Pierre Gignac, Javier Aquino and Eduardo Vargas. The Apertura 2017 champions are undefeated in their last seven league games but are coming off a disappointing 0-0 result against Chivas of Guadalajara. This game should be very winnable for Ferretti’s side but it could potentially be a tricky task against an unpredictable team like Leon.
Leon has been very inconsistent this season as the offense always has potential to explode but the defense can be very shaky at times as well. La Fiera is currently in 12th place with 15 points and has not won in its last two games recently coming off a 2-2 draw against Lobos BUAP. Mauro Boselli was not available in this game against Lobos BUAP but will be ready to face Tigres UANL this Saturday. Claudio Gonzalez made his Liga MX debut, substituting Boselli in that game and managed to score a brace, which could earn him a start in this match. Leon is only two points out of a playoff spot and should be really motivated to get some points out of this encounter.
Tigres UANL vs Leon Prediction
Tigres could basically secure a playoff spot with a win in this match while Leon needs the win to keep its playoff hopes alive. The team from Nuevo Leon does have the better team and will also count on the massive home-field advantage, which should secure a win. FutnSoccer predicts a 3-2 win for Tigres UANL in a match that should be very exciting and action-packed.
