Why you should back Tigres UANL
Tigres plays at the pace of striker Andre-Pierre Gignac, who has become a club legend since coming over from France in 2015. The 35-year-old, who is signed through 2024, scored three times in the Club World Cup and is the team's all-time leading scorer. He has led the team to four league titles and scored six times as Tigres won the 2020 CONCACAF Champions League.
Gignac has just one goal in league play so far, but Nico Lopez is tied for fourth in the league with four. Tigres is likely still steaming from a 3-2 setback to Los Diablos Rojos in August, when an added-time goal gave Tigres an devastating defeat. Tigres outshot Toluca 15-9 and 6-3 on net in the match, and Ginac scored twice, but Alexis Canelo netted the winner in the 93rd minute.
Why you should back Toluca
Los Diablos Rojos boast the highest-scoring offense in Liga MX with 15 goals and just need to find consistency. They have scored seven goals in their last four matches. Alexis Canelo leads Liga MX with seven goals, and veteran Rubens Sambueza has a league-high four assists. Six players have scored, including Canelo and Sambueza, and four have at least two goals.
Kevin Castaneda and Michael Estrada also play critical roles for Los Diablos Rojos. Each has scored twice and has added an assist. Goalkeeper Luis Garcia has three clean sheets in the eight games and has 15 saves. The 10-time champions have allowed nine goals in the eight matches, but six of those came in two games, 3-2 losses to Tijuana and Cruz Azul.
