The Clasico Regio will have another edition when Monterrey hosts Tigres on Sunday, Sept. 19 in Liga MX matchday 9. Rayados are coming off a huge win when they eliminated defending champions Cruz Azul in the semifinals of the Concachampions League. However, Monterrey has lost four straight to the felines in recent derbies and only one win in recent league meetings.
So, in case of losing, Rayados would fall for the first time in five consecutive times against Tigres, which is fourth in the overall league table with 13 points, while Monterrey has only two wins, five draws, and one loss for a total of 10 points. The felines so far have two unknowns in their starting lineup, as Nicolás López and Leo Fernández have been training separately during the week.

Why bet on Monterrey
Monterrey is going through a marked irregularity in the Mexican League. Coach Javier Aguirre has managed to increase the team’s scoring power and they recently qualified for the final of the CONCACAF Champions League with a 4-1 away win over Cruz Azul. However, in the local tournament, Los Rayados sit in 8th place after the loss to Atlas, with only one win in their last five games.
The home team needs to show the talent they have in their squad on the pitch and they have the opportunity against a team with whom they are directly fighting for the championship position.
Why bet on Tigres
Meanwhile, Tigres UANL is betting all its chips on the local championship, where it is in 4th place since it has just been left out of all international tournaments. The team coached by Miguel Herrera has been increasing its scoring power, scoring in its last five matches, winning twice, and remaining undefeated.
That’s why this Clasico Regio promises to be an exciting challenge, as the two are separated by just two points in the tournament.
Final betting analysis between Monterrey and Tigres:
Both Monterrey and Tigres UANL come into this match in need of a win. Both have the material to fight higher in the championship, however, they had an irregular season and need to improve their performance, increasing their list of matches won. Given the current form of both sides, it is not a simple task to decide who will emerge victorious from this duel. We are confident that both teams will give their all, as they need victories, but we believe that Monterrey, who is coming off the back of having advanced to the final of the Concachampions, will come out on top. Thus, our soccer bet for this match is Monterrey‘s victory.
