Team News: Tigres
Tigres boss Ricardo Ferretti has zero fitness worries whatsoever before this game with a fully healthy squad ready to go.
Team News: Toluca
Owing to a completely healthy group to choose from, Toluca manager Carlos Morales doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash.
We feel that in this game, Tigres have it within them to have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
Conversely, Toluca might well find it a difficult task to find the back of the net but we can see them being dangerous at times.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 3-1 win for Tigres at the end of this one.
