Club America vs Tigres Prediction
Tigres were held to a goalless draw in their opening match of the Clausura by Atletico San Luis. The former did have the home advantage, but still failed to make any use of it.
America, who will begin their campaign with a battle against Tigres, have their work cut out for them. Tigres will be seething with frustration after how they were booted out of the playoffs, that too at their home.
Tigres were going incredibly strong, and had high hopes regarding the title before America inflicted the upset. For sure, the visitors of the day will be looking for revenge, and these kinds of games are the perfect scenarios for the BTTS bet to be used.
Moreover, Tigres were unbeaten in an impressive 30 of their last 34 match-ups, and are on a live streak of ten unbeaten games on the road. They have also won four of their last five away fixtures, and scored two or more goals in four of their previous five road games.
Most importantly, all through the previous Apertura season, the team had lost just once on the road, and at this venue they have lost just once in the past four years.
On the other hand, America lost five of their previous nine overall match-ups, and were winless in seven of their past ten appearances at home as well.
Considering all these observations, the chances for Tigres to lose this grudge match are very low.
However, do take into account the fact that America have the home advantage, and that they had managed to overcome a 1-2 loss at their home in the first leg of the Quarters, with an impressive 2-4 victory at Tigres’s home.
Also, Tigres could keep a total of just two clean sheets from their previous nine road games, while not once in the whole Apertura season did America fail to find the back of the net in front of their home crowd.
Finally, at this venue, Tigres could manage to keep the American offense at bay in just three of their prior fourteen trips.
Bringing all these information under consideration, it’s argued that the BTTS looks very promising this Sunday.
