THE TEAM NEWS

TIGRES UANL

  • Tigres UANL were the third-best team in the Apertura regular season since they finished with 32 points (W8, D8, L2), and their biggest strength was on the defensive end since they conceded the fewest goals in the Apertura (14 – 0.77 per game). However, they couldn’t translate that to the playoffs and lost in the quarter-finals against Club America by a 5-4 aggregate score.
  • Eduardo Vargas has been listed as doubtful due to a thigh injury, while forward Julian Quinones and midfielder Jose Torres have already been ruled out through injuries.

Expected starting XI: Nahuel Guzman; Luis Rodriguez, Hugo Ayala, Carlos Salcedo, Jorge Torres Nilo; Guido Pizarro, Rafael Carioca; Jesus Duenas, Javier Aquino, Enner Valencia; Andre-Pierre Gignac

ATLETICO SAN LUIS

  • Atletico San Luis got off to an impressive start to the season in their Liga MX debut, but they quickly faded away and ended struggling after suffering four defeats in their final five games. As a result, San Luis ended the Apertura campaign in 15th place with 20 points after losing 10 of 18 matches (W6, D2, L10).
  • San Luis did not make major moves during the offseason, although they will have one absentee here since new signing Luis Felipe Gallegos has been ruled out with an undisclosed injury.

Expected starting XI: Carlos Rodriguez; Matias Catalan, Mario de Luna, Unai Bilbao, Luis Ricardo Reyes; Juan David Castro, Camilo Mayada, Oscar Macias, Oscar Benitez; Nicolas Ibanez, Ian Gonzalez

THE PREDICTION

Tigres did not suffer any big losses, perhaps with the exception of Lucas Zelarayan, and they should remain one of the strongest teams in the league ahead of the Clausura campaign, especially at home where they compiled a W4, D4, L1 record while conceding just seven goals in nine matches. Meanwhile, Atletico San Luis ended the Apertura losing four of their last five matches and evidenced major defensive problems since they allowed 31 goals, the second-highest mark in the Apertura. Tigres should be able to secure the win easily here.
