UANL Tigres (2-1-0) were quite bad in their away match against Cruz Azul over the weekend, and lost by 0-1. Tigres were actually the better team in that match, meaning they had possession and created scoring chances. However, they failed to record a single shot on target in that match. Their opponents scored the winning goal at the 69th minute for the final 0-1. That was also the first match that they failed to score. UANL Tigres are now sitting at the 5th spot of the league table with 6 points, having scored 3 goals while conceding just one.
On the other hand, Toluca (1-1-1) played a really strong match at home against Chivas Guadalajara over the weekend. They took an early lead at the 4th minute, but were already down by 2-1 by the 51st. They eventually scored another goal at the 70th minute and eventually split the points. Toluca started the season with a nice 0-2 win at home against Monarcas, but met two consecutive losses after that. They are now sitting at the 8th spot of the league table with 4 points, scoring five goals while conceding four in the process.
This is a typical match-up that doesn’t usually produce a lot of goals. There have been Under 2.5 Goals in 10 of the last 11 matches between the two. Nine of those matches had either one or no goals.
Toluca have been great in this venue over the years (9-6-7), and have lost just once in their last five trips (2-1-2). However, Tigres have been excellent over the past couple of years, and will most likely take a slim win here.
