With four matchdays complete, teams are still getting into their groove as the new Mexican Primera Division campaign is underway.

Deportivo Toluca and UANL Tigres earned slender 2-1 victories earlier this week, so who can use that momentum to prevail here? As far as the H2H record is concerned, these two sides are quite evenly matched – setting up an intriguing watch. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Deportivo Toluca vs UANL Tigres Betting Tips

Quick-fire goals from Eduardo Vargas and Andre-Pierre Gignac's penalty saw Tigres race into a 2-0 lead after eight minutes against Puebla.

Their visitors had 17 shots, more completed dribbles, tackles won and a numerical advantage for the final 20 minutes. Yet, Ricardo Ferretti's men held firm to record a gritty victory and maintain their unbeaten start to the new campaign.

By contrast, Toluca have already suffered defeat twice: 3-1 to Monterrey on the opening weekend, and 2-1 by ten-man Mazatlan on August 8. Although they managed to edge a 2-1 away win against Atlas on Friday, it was a game of penalties – all three goals were spot-kicks!

Atlas had more possession (62%), total shots (15), hit the woodwork twice and almost double their completed passes (380) too. You can expect Tigres won't be so unfortunate, if handed those same opportunities here. You'd be right believing that Alexis Canelo and captain Rubens Sambueza are key to their chances of victory.

Canelo won two penalties, was fouled on five occasions, created two key passes and scored one of his own. Sambueza meanwhile, was similarly dangerous: two key passes, fouled three times, one goal before being replaced after 73 minutes.

Deportivo Toluca vs UANL Tigres Correct Score Predictions

Tigres possess more creative firepower but will miss the presence of Carlos Salcedo in central defence through suspension. It'll be interesting to see how Toluca create chances from open play, after scoring two penalties in midweek.

They'd love to spring a surprise against opposition who appear far stronger on paper and form-wise. Whether they do it though, remains to be seen.
