Wolves vs. Tigers Soccer Prediction for Today
The 7th Day of Clausura 2018 brings a very interesting match between Lobos BUAP and Tigres in what will be the first visit of Tigers to the house of the “pack”, in a duel that is key for both teams, since the cats add two dates lowering positions in the general table, while the local needs to add to move away from the descent positions.
Analysis of Wolves
In the hands of Jerónimo Amione and Julián Quiñones, the Wolves of the BUAP came from behind to get their first triumph of the tournament by a score of 3-1 over the Atlas Rojinegros, in the celebration of the Day 6 within the MX League. It is noteworthy that in that clash Lobos concluded with ten men the party for the expulsion of Luis Advíncula, however, reached four units in the fair and although they are in the 17th place the defeat of Veracruz gave it a little more flavor to this victory.
In the fight for the non-descent the Wolves gave a break with their first three points, it reached them to climb to position 15 and left the Foxes to 11 points of Veracruz, the last place with 93 units. For this reason comes to this game with a little more margin as they face one of the most powerful players in the league and current champions. The most worrisome of the team is still their defense that has allowed 16 goals (leaders in this section) in the previous 6 days, double the goals scored by their forwards. Tigers will be one of the most complicated tests they will have to face.
Tigres has not had a good time in this beginning of Clausura 2018 after having won the championship in the 2017 Apertura and could not win in the last two dates, when they fell 2-0 against Pumas and tied a goal against America in the Estadio Universitario in a match where they honestly deserved to lose.
Ricardo Ferretti suffered with the loss of Javier Aquino and had to modify his scheme against the Eagles to play with line of three centers, as well as Luis Rodríguez and Alberto Acosta as lanes, then enabled Lucas Zelarayán for the left wing, however, already He recovered Jorge Torres Nilo for this duel.
Added to the irregular performance of the last encounters we must add that Tigres has not been able to win as a visitor, so in his visit this Tuesday to Lobos BUAP, they hope to get out of the bad patch and comply as they have done in the University Stadium. Those of Ricardo Ferretti add only a point in three games playing away from home, with the balance of a draw and two defeats.
There is an interesting element to take into consideration and that is that there are several players of Lobos BUAP that belong to the Tigres institution and since they do not take place in the feline set they have been given to Lobos to develop, they are: Julián Quiñones, Luis Advíncula, Alfonso Tamay, all with a very important roll in the campus of Lobos.
The short history of Lobos in the first division makes the only clash that is officially registered in the league between these teams is the previous tournament when Tigres in local condition won in a close match 3 to 2 at Lobos BUAP that never They gave up.
After analyzing all the previous elements, the situation of Lobos and their lousy defense, the numbers of Tigers as a visitor, as well as the superiority of the teams, I consider that Tigres is the top favorite to take the 3 points in this match and finally add their 3 first points in visitor status.
