Pumas Tabasco will welcome Tapatío to Estadio Olímpico de Villahermosa for a matchday 8 fixture in Mexico Ascenso MX. The last meeting on 6th August 2021 ended in a Pumas Tabasco 2-1 win. Both sides have met three times in the most recent seasons. Pumas Tabasco has won 1 match, and Tapatío triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 3.33 goals, while both teams score 67% of the time.
Pumas Tabasco’s latest fixture against Dorados ended in an away 4-1 loss. I expected more from La Universidad. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Pumas Tabasco set the tone early and scored in the 41st minute.
Tapatío’s recent game against Tlaxcala ended in a home 1-1 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. Tapatío put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 44th minute.
So far, Los Felinos plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.58 points per away game on average compared to 0.73 points at home. Although Pumas Tabasco is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 27% home clean sheets.
Tapatío has picked up 14 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Tapatío wins 1.33 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Pumas Tabasco or Draw.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 1.64 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 17% of Pumas Tabasco’s home and Tapatío’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
