Tigres UANL and Monterrey meet today in a match that always hogs the spotlight in Mexican soccer. They will face in the Round 16 of the Liga MX Guard1anes Tournament 2021 in a game in which both need the win for their playoff aspirations. Here, you'll find everything there is to know about this game such as information, storylines, predictions, odds, and how to watch the game in the US.
The Felinos have been surprisingly struggling in the league after being crowned in the CONCACAF Champions League 2020 and following a runner-up finish in the Club World Cup. Two games before the regular season ends, they have to win to secure a spot in the next round.
On the other hand, the Rayados are several places above their archrivals. Javier Aguirre's boys have failed to hold onto the top, which is why they haven't secured a top-four finish yet. The upcoming derby could be a great opportunity for them to charm their fans and also to have a boost for the trophy race.

Tigres UANL vs Monterrey: Storylines and Head-to-Head
Tigres shocked the soccer world a few months ago with an impressive performance against German giants Bayern Munich, but in the following months they performed very poorly in the local competition. Tuca Ferretti's squad has a losing record so far, and it's barely making it to the pre-playoff round right now. Fans are concerned and the Felinos have reasons to believe they should be in a better situation. Can they turn things around beating lifelong rivals?
Monterrey were much better than their next opponents up to now, even though they couldn't keep up with Cruz Azul and América in the top two spots. However, Rayados aren't heading to this clash in the best way, as they've lost in their last two league games. Just like their rivals, they head to the derby needing the triumph to bounce back.
These two have an obvious long history facing each other in Mexican soccer. They have met 88 times in the domestic league, with Monterrey having a slight advantage of 31 wins over Tigres' 30 victories, and they tied in 26 games.
