Leon odds: +157 – 37.5%

Draw odds: +255 – 27.0%

Tigres UANL odds: +182 – 35.5%

Leon are the expected winners ahead of the kick-off, as they have a 37.5% win probability at +157. The home-field advantage at Estadio Leon is the reason why the bookmakers pick coach Jorge Bava’s players as favorites. However, we fancy the visitors’ odds at +182. Coach Roberto Siboldi’s boys keep a solid 35.5% shot at the three points this week. That’s why we believe over 1.5 Tigres UANL goals is the best bet to be made on this game, as the bookies give our key betting tip a 47.62% likelihood.

Leon vs Tigres UANL Lineups & Team News

Leon

With six wins, five draws, and six losses in their Apertura campaign, Leon were definitely underachieving. The 2023 CONCACAF Champions League winners decided to sack coach Nicolas Larcamon, who was the mastermind behind the success against Los Angeles. We are sure that this is another plus in favor of our Leon vs Tigres UANL predictions.

Predicted lineup – Cota (GK), Moreno, Barreiro, Frias, Tesillo, Rodriguez, Mena, Romero, Ambriz, Alvarado & Vinas

Tigres UANL

Tigres UANL did very well last season. They scored 32 goals and conceded only 18 to reach 3rd place in the regular part of the Apertura campaign. It will be interesting to see if coach Siboldi can top their display from last season.

Predicted lineup – Guzman (GK), Angulo, Reyes, Pizarro, Aquino, Carioca, Herrera, Cordova, Gorriaran, Lainez & Gignac

Player to Watch: Andre-Pierre Gignac

French goalscoring magician Andre-Pierre Gignac is the player to watch in our Leon vs Tigres UANL prediction, as he scooped up the Top Goalscorer Award in the 2023/24 Apertura. This was his fourth Top Goalscorer Award in Mexico, and we are sure that he’d be eager to prove he’s no has-been against Leon at Estadio Leon. Seeing as he’s on penalty duty for coach Siboldi, we are sure that he will be among the starters for Tigres UANL.
