Clausura 2019 Semifinal Preview: Saturday’s Game

Tigres UANL vs Monterrey – 8:00 PM – Univision Deportes
First leg: Monterrey 1-0 Tigres

Tigres UANL (2nd) suffered a narrow defeat in the first leg of this Clásico Regio semifinal series, and they’ll now look to overcome the deficit when they return home to El Volcán. Due to their position as higher seed, a 1-0 victory would send Tigres through; but if Monterrey scores, the universitarios will need to win by two due to the away goals tiebreaker. Tigres lost just once at home in the regular season and scored 2+ goals in seven of their eight games there, so a comeback here is well within the realms of possibility. They will not want to lose to their regional rivals again, especially not at home; expect high intensity from the opening whistle.
