Tigres UANL vs Monterrey by KhanT

Finale del Region Monterrey. If anyone can stop Monterrey it's UANL Tigres. With healthy Enner Valencia, Andre Pierre Gignac, Eduardo Vargas and if needed Sosa on bench, Jurgen Damm, Zelarayan etc. Tigres can be a powerful force in this game. Monterrey are very strong team with the best ranking during the regular season of Apertura, but they did not have a true challenge in playoffs yet. Now in finals they will finally meet someone who can beat them. Even though Monterrey beat Tigres 2:0 in the last round of regular season for Apertura, that should not mean much because this is playoff and that game was not important as both teams were already in playoffs at the time. Tigres faced Atlas and Club America in quarter finals, semi finals, but they did not play as well as they can. I was disappointed with Ricardo Feretti Tuca and Tigres. But I feel they are gaining form and they will peek now when it matters most. Against toughest opponent in the whole league and in the most important game of the season. Tigres are hosting Monterrey at El Vulcan and it should be packed. It is Thursday but it has to be set up that way because finals needed to be over before Monday, so finals second game will be played at Sunday 01:00 CET time.


Monterrey crushed everyone in playoffs but their most important player and one of biggest stars in league, Aviles Hurtado newly selected Colombian International and the biggest transfer of the summer in Liga MX when Tijuana Xolos sold him, he was kind of injured against Monarcas Morelia in first game. He won that game for them with 0:1 away from home and a penalty that he fought for, but later in the game he got clipped behind his heel and he could not walk anymore. He went on the bench and there he cried because he was sure that he will miss the finals against Tigres. But now Monterrey are saying that he is healthy and that he will start, apparently he is 100 % fit and ready. I call this absolute BS, the man could not even walk in first game against Morelia Monarcas, in second game he did not even play. But of course Monterrey will not say that he is not fully 100 %. Yes, I believe that he will play but he is not 100 % fit and his speed won't be as fast as it usually is, that could damage attack of Monterrey.


UANL Tigres are double Apertura champions and defending champions in 2015 and 2016, if they win it in 2017 that will be a record winning Apertura three times in a row for three years straight. Monterrey are always strong but somehow they never win the league or Copa MX last few years. They crushed everyone in Copa MX last year and then miserably lost to Chivas in finals again, I think they will again do this and Tigres will win the finals. I will bet on UANL Tigres to win the first game at home at El Vulcan against the Monterrey that are not with 100 % healthy Aviles Hurtado, no matter what they say.
