The Tigres UANL vs Necaxa match will be broadcast live online and on TV as Los Felinos host Los Rayos at the Estadio Universitario this Saturday, February 16, 2019, at 5:00 PM Pacific.
Tigres UANL is off to a tremendous start in this Liga MX 2019 Clausura, currently in second place with 13 points. Los Felinos are on a very impressive three-game winning streak, coming off a 2-0 away win against Veracruz, where young centre-back Francisco Venegas scored two goals.
The team from Nuevo Leon has one of the most imposing offenses in the league with players like Enner Valencia, Luis Quinones and Andre-Pierre Gignac, who has three goals scored this season. The backline is also coming along nicely with young players like Francisco Venegas and Juan Sanchez stepping up and Carlos Salcedo now serving as a leader.
Necaxa has been one of the surprises this season, currently in fourth place with 11 points and seven goals scored in its last two league games. Los Rayos are coming off a very exciting 3-3 draw against Chivas de Guadalajara at home and will look to keep that explosiveness consistent.
Argentine forward Brian Fernandez has been one of the revelations in the 2019 Clausura, currently with five goals scored and two assists. The team from Aguascalientes has been carried by Fernandez, but can be very vulnerable in the backline with inconsistent performances from players like Alexis Pena and Ventura Alvarado.
Tigres UANL vs Necaxa Prediction
FutnSoccer predicts a 3-1 win for Tigres UANL as there should be plenty of goals scored in this match, but the home team should have the upper hand.
