Tigres vs Leon: Preview and Prediction

Tigres vs Leon
Mexican Liga MX Apertura
Date: Sunday 22nd July 2018
Kick off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Universitario (Nuevo Leon).

The 2018 Mexican Liga MX Apertura season starts at the weekend and Tigres will take on Leon in their first game at home.

Tigres will be expected to win this game with ease and are in fact the favourites by being odds on with the bookmakers to do so. The gulf in quality is there and the fact that Tigres are at home should see 3 points in their opening weekend.

Tigres have the quality up front to damage Leon but the away side will hope to break on the counter and also frustrate their opponents. Tigres are being backed in at 1.53 to win this game whilst we can get as much as 5.00 for Leon to steal and shock an away win.

Last season Tigres became the champion and Leon finished in 7th position.

Tigres vs Leon: Prediction

We think that Tigres and Leon can both start the game in a positive fashion and we expect goals.

We will opt for our main bet to be Tigres to win this match. They are odds on but they have a good team and were able to score 4 goals against Leon just this year.

Both teams to score is a solid bet too and Leon may be out of their depth but they have proved in recent matches that they can still make their mark on a game.
