All-time record: Tigres holds the all-time record, winning four regular season matches to Monterrey’s two, with the clubs drawing twice. The only time the clubs have faced one another in the Liguilla was the 2018 Clausura, where the teams ended 4-4 at the end of regulation and Tigres winning 4-2 on penalties.
This series: The last match ended in a 1-1 draw. In the event the match is tied at the end of regulation, it will go to penalties. Away goals have no bearing.
The 2019 Liga MX Femenil Clausura tournament will end tomorrow with either Tigres having their name etched onto the trophy for a second time or Monterrey having theirs etched onto the trophy for the first time. With the first match ending in a 1-1 draw, this game will fully determine who it will be.
In the first match Tigres were able to win the second and third balls, often times catching Monterrey out of position. If they can capitalize better on some of the chances they’re sure to generate, they will increase their likelihood of being the ones who emerge as champions.
Monterrey’s bend-but-don’t-break mentality was able to keep Tigres’ goalscorers off of the score sheet in the first round. They may elect to open up a little bit on the offensive side of the ball especially in front of their own fans, however they shouldn’t elect to stray too far from their core identity of a pragmatic defense that springs a deadly counterattack.
Ultimately it should be a thrilling match for those who are able to watch. Unfortunately, it will not be available to legally view it in the United States.
