Tigres vs Tijuana
Mexico Liga MX Apertura
Date Monday, 30th July 2018
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Universitario (San Nicolás de los Garza).
Tigres had a magnificent 2017/18 season as they qualified for the play-offs of both Torneo Apertura and Clausura and crowded champions of the former.
They started the 2018/19 campaign with a bang by beating Santos Laguna 4-0 in the Campeón de Campeones. This is backed up by a solid 2-0 win against Club Leon to start the Apertura 2018 regular season on a high note.
Ricardo Ferretti’s men bagged the early momentum with these back-to-back wins and they will be high on confidence for Sunday’s game at a stadium they boast an unbeaten streak since September 2017.
Tijuana on the other hand, had a mixed season last time. They were 11th in the Apertura, but managed to pull out a remarkable run in the latter Clausura and made it to the semifinals.
Truth to be told, Tijuana’s mini success last season is purely down to strong results at home. They must improve the road results if they are looking at a consistent campaign this time.
Tijuana opened their 2018/19 campaign with a tricky 2-1 win against Guadalajara. It remained to be seen if they can carry on the momentum to away games.

Tigres vs Tijuana Prediction
This cannot be called a tricky fixture by any means despite the teams involved have a great history on their bags. Tigres are a class apart while playing at their own backyard, while Tijuana are the team with lowest win ratio in away games last season. Therefore, anything else than a home win can be labelled as a surprise result.
