Tigres vs Atlas Prediction

Tigres were on the road the last match-day, and they had taken on Club America. Against the finalists of the Liguilla, Tigres had to succumb to a 1-0 defeat on the road.

In the meantime, Atlas were defeated in front of their home crowd in their latest league game, as they fell to a 0-1 scoreline against Puebla.

As things stand right now, Tigres are considered to be the favorites this match-day. First and foremost, they had finished in the third position in the Apertura season, while Atlas had ended in the 14th spot.

On top of that, Tigres are desperate to get back to their winning ways after their start to the second half of the season have gone awry. The team need a huge win soon to being morale and confidence back to their camp.

Furthermore, Tigres have the home advantage as well.

On the other hand, Atlas were winless in six of their last eight overall matches, and were so in 16 of their former 21 on the road. Keep note that Tigres were invincible in 11 of their prior 13 overall fixtures, and were so in 20 of their previous 23 appearances in front of the home crowd.

Going on, Tigres registered the last three h2h wins, and ten of the last twelve as well. Also, they have lost just once at home against Atlas in the past decade, and they even kept clean sheets in eight of the past thirteen face-to-face matches at this ground.

Considering all these factors, it’s adjudged that Tigres will make a valiant effort this Sunday to get back to winning ways. They will be extra vigilant at the back, as they know the offensive shortcomings of Atlas. 

On top of that, Atlas have really suffered at this stadium to find the back of the net in prior h2h clashes.

As such, count on Tigres to record a victory as well as a clean sheet this weekend.
