Tigres de la UANL

Tigres have been conceding pretty frequently of late, although they have also found ways to score goals themselves. Analysis of their previous 6 games shows that Los Tigres have been punished defensively in 5 of them in addition to managing to get on the scoresheet in 6 of those games. That pattern won’t necessarily follow through into this match, however.

In that match, León managed 40% possession and 9 shots on goal with 4 on target. For León, goals were scored by Emmanuel Gigliotti (12') and Yairo Moreno (83'). On the other side, Universidad Nacional got 9 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target.
In 5 of the prior 6 clashes involving León, a notably low volume of goals have been struck between them and opposing sides. The overall average number of goals per game within that spell comes out as a paltry 2, with the average goals for Los Esmeraldas equalling 1.33.
