Tigres UANL odds: +215 – 26.0%

Draw odds: +250 – 24.0%

Portland Timbers odds: +110 – 48.0%

Andre-Pierre Gignac to Score Anytime is a Tigres UANL vs Portland Timbers prediction with a solid enough 31.75% chance at +215. The goalscoring veteran is among the best players in Mexico, and he shouldn’t have issues delivering. Tigres UANL are underdogs in this Leagues Cup race, as coach Siboldi’s boys have barely a 26.0% shot at the three points on Thursday. Meanwhile, it’s Portland Timbers who have the three points ripe for the plucking, as coach Savarese’s boys have a convincing 48.0% win probability, making them the expected winners.

Tigres UANL vs Portland Timbers Lineups & Team News

Tigres UANL

To see Andre-Pierre Gignac play the full 90 minutes against in-form Leon at the age of 37 is really something special. Tigres UANL’s board opted for changes last season when Nicolas Ibanez was added to the roster. However, the Uruguayan doesn’t seem capable of replacing Gignac, so we expect the French goalscoring genius to lead the visitors’ attack and help make our Tigres UANL vs Portland Timbers predictions a success.

Predicted lineup – Guzman (GK), Pizarro, Reyes, Samir, Aquino, Vigon, Carioca, Angulo, Quinones, Gignac & Gorriaran

Portland Timbers

Despite losing possession to the Quakes on the 23rd of July, coach Savarese’s boys did what’s necessary for much-needed three points at Providence Park via a 2-0 win. However, we saw plenty of issues with his starting XI, which Tigres UANL will undoubtedly exploit.

Predicted lineup – Bingham (GK), Mosquera, McGraw, Zuparic, Bravo, Paredes, Chara, Evander, Asprilla, Niezgoda & Chara

Player to Watch: Evander

If our Tigres UANL vs Portland Timbers predictions succeed, it’ll be because Evander had a poor game for coach Giovanni Savarese. After the €9.50m transfer became a fact, Evander has been working tirelessly to prove he’s worth every penny.

So far, he’s doing an OK job at it, as he bagged five goals in the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign, whilst also assisting on numerous occasions. Tigres UANL are known for having a watertight defense, so perhaps a maestro such as Evander is exactly what might put a damper on coach Siboldi’s good mood.
