Will Atletico San Luis Secure Crucial Three Points?
On the final weekend of the 2022 Apertura, Tigres UANL is in fifth, while Atletico San Luis is down in 12th. At the time of writing, both teams are in the playoffs. However, the visitors are likely to miss out on direct qualification to the final stage, while Atletico will ensure a playoff berth with a home win.
A lot is riding on this Apertura game, and we could be in for an entertaining fixture at the Estadio Alfonso Lastras. If you like to bet on soccer, read our preview for the best soccer picks and predictions.
Can Atletico San Luis Bounce Back from Defeat?
Atletico San Luis is clinging on to the final playoff place in Mexico’s top tier. They head into the last weekend in the 12th spot with 18 points to their name. However, they are a point ahead of 13th-place Mazatlan, so a home win here will see them through.
Andre Jardine’s side has been in the patchy form of late, winning just one of the last five. During that run, the Athletics suffered three defeats. After an impressive 3-1 victory at Atlas, San Luis was beaten at home by Pachuca in the last one.
Atletico has struggled for wins on their own patch in the Apertura, picking up just two. Since winning back-to-back home fixtures in August, San Luis has taken just one point from a possible six at the Estadio Alfonso Lastras. They could do with a home win here.
Tigres UANL to Return Home With Maximum Points?
Tigres UANL finished 2nd in the 2022 Clausura, but they look set to miss out on the top four of the Apertura. They are in the fifth spot at present, picking up 27 points. They are three points behind Santos Laguna, who are at home to Mazatlan in their last fixture.
Inconsistency has been an issue for Tigres all season, and they have struggled for wins in recent weeks. Since successive victories over Pumas UNAM and Toluca in August, the Golden-Blue Ones have won just one of five, losing three times in the process.
Tigres will want to end the regular season with three points away from home. But, after losing at Puebla in their previous away fixture, can Miguel Herrera’s boys bounce back with a win in San Luis Potosi this weekend?
Atletico San Luis vs Tigres UANL Head-to-Head

The Tigers then turned the game on its head with two goals in five minutes, with Andre-Pierre Gignac netting the winner 13 minutes from time. Tigres won 3-0 when they met at the Estadio Alfonso Lastras a year back.
