Why Bet on Cruz Azul?

Cruz Azul played 3 games, lost 2, and drew 1 in the current season of the Mexican league (Clausura Tournament). As one of the most traditional teams in Mexican football, Cruz Azul does not seem to be dealing well with the penultimate position in the table, since the team has entered the field under great pressure from its fans.

In the only game played at home so far, Cruz Azul had a player expelled in the second half, when they lost to Monterrey by 2-1. With the postponement of the game against Querétaro, Cruz Azul players had at least 10 days to rest and prepare to face Tigres.

A sign that things are not going well for Cruz Azul is that goalkeeper Jesus Corona has been the most outstanding player on the team, reaching great scores in football statistics applications. This means that the team has suffered many shots on goal, as a result of an inefficient defensive system.

Despite the difficult moment, midfielder Carlos Rodríguez has also been a pleasant surprise at Cruz Azul, participating in the main offensive and defensive actions of the team. This will be another good chance to recover Cruz Azul’s winning spirit and surprise the opponent with the support of the fans.

Why Bet on Tigres?

Even after the two consecutive draws, Tigres remains one of the favorite teams for the title of the Clausura tournament, along with Pachuca. With 8 points in four games, the team is in third place in the Mexican league, but could even return to the lead if Pachuca loses its game.

Before the draws against Atlético San Luís and Tijuana, Tigres had beaten Pachuca 4-1, in a brilliant match by striker Quiñones, who scored two goals and made life hell for Pachuca’s defenders.

Against Cruz Azul, Tigres will need striker Gignac, who has not scored goals for two games. That is, when Gignac scores, the chances of Tigres winning increase considerably.

Final Betting Analysis: Cruz Azul vs. Tigres

Cruz Azul and Tigres will certainly star in a very disputed game from start to finish. Cruz Azul players can see in this game the perfect opportunity to overcome difficulties and gain positions in the Liga MX table.

Tigres has a more qualified squad and has yet to lose this season. Even away from home, they are the favorites to win the game, even if it is by the smallest difference – just one goal.

We believe in the victory of Tigres in this game.

If you put $100 into Tigres’, you could get $142 back for a total payout of $242.
