Tigres vs Puebla Mexico Liga MX Prediction by LeagueLane

Tigres vs Puebla
Mexico – Liga MX
Date: Sunday, 16 January 2022
Kick-off at 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Universitario.

Tigres had a largely successful season in the Apertura last year, as the club finished 4th in the regular season. They were hard done by Leon as they missed out on the finals despite finishing level on aggregate in the semi finals.

Puebla on the other hand following a 7th place finish in the Apertura league table were knocked out in the quarter finals by Leon.

Los Auriazules managed to rescue a point for themselves in the opening fixture of the Clausura. Thanks to a 93rd minute equaliser by Carlos Salcedo.

The team had little to no issues in attack as they ended the Apertura scoring the most goals in the division. They also conceded the second fewest goals. While their home performances last year were brilliant they had struggled significantly on the road.

La Franja were not able to take advantage of a 10-man América as they had to settle for a point on the last matchday. The fixture ended with a score line of 1-1.

The team had a mediocre Apertura with the same number of wins as draws in the campaign and scored the same number of goals they had conceded.

Tigres vs Puebla Head-to-head

  • In six previous meetings a win each was claimed by both teams.
  • Both teams scored in the preceding three duels.
  • The visitors have registered just a win in their previous six visits to this venue.

Tigres vs Puebla Prediction

The hosts are on a 5-match winning streak at home, with their previous loss at this venue coming in April 2021. They should pick all points from the fixture, considering they take on a team that has dropped points twice in five previous fixtures away from home. 

Nicolás López ended the Apertura as the top goal scorer with nine goals to his name. The 28-year old has been brilliant since his move from Internacional. The Uruguayan is my pick to score at least once on Sunday.
