Tigres-MEX vs Olimpia-HON Betting Tips – CONCACAF Champions League: Match counting towards the semi final phase of the CONCACAF Champions League, at the Exploria Stadium, in Orlando.
Tigres-MEX vs Olimpia-HON Saturday, December 19, 2020. The final phase of the CONCACAF Champions League is now being disputed in the United States, in a single match knock outs.
The competition which was paralyzed in March, has been resumed again recently, with the conclusion of the quarter finals matches.
Tigres passed through New York City in the previous phase. The Mexicans had already won the first game, away by 1-0, still in March. With that advantage, they allowed themselves to play in a more reactive way, exploring the gaps left by the New York City.
They are a dangerous team, with very fast offensive players like Aquino, and killer scorers like the center forward Gignac. They have shared the ball possession, however they decided not to expose themselves, and were very surgical.
In 6 arrivals to the front, they have managed to hit the target of the opponent goalkeeper everytime, and 4 of these balls entered the goal. They are a team that is able to be very aggressive for the flanks and the winger Quinones turned out to be the great builder of this match, giving 3 assists.
They are capable to play in a dominant way, with ball possession and a supported gameplay, or even in transitions. They possess highly vertical players, and they arrive here with a lot of strength in order to dispute this title.
Olimpia, on the other hand, had already won the first game against Canada’s Montreal Impact by 2-1, away from home, and took a big advantage for the decisive game. Just like Tigres, they also chose to play the second leg in a way of little exposure, and more reaction.
They have lost that second leg by 1-0, but moved on due to the tiebreaker criteria. They have had little ball possession (35% in total), but a lot of space in order to attack the opponent’s goal. They have managed to shoot a total of 18 times, but only 1 shot found the opponent’s goal.
They usually play with 2 lines of 4 defenders and seek a more vertical game when they are able to steal the ball, mainly by the flanks.
In the first leg they have had only 26% of the ball possession, conceded 20 shots throughout the entire match, and with only 5 shots made, they have managed to win the match by 2-1.
Olimpia were not considered title contenders in the quarter finals, and will certainly not be considered in the semi finals either. The match they have played against Montreal was an exception, since they were very beaten up but through sporadic attacks, managed to get the win.
In this game, they will find an even more aggressive team, with a lot of quality players, aggressive on the flanks, with a good midfield play, and with a very qualified center forward.
Tigres (MEX) vs Olimpia (HON) prediction:
If Olimpia continue to keep their lines that low, allowing such a high volume in terms of finishing from their opponents, I don’t see how a team with the quality of Tigres can finish the 90 minutes without a single goal scored.

Tigres-MEX vs Olimpia-HON Betting Tips:
It is true that the Honduran formation had a nice counter-attack volume in their last match, but I don’t think that this will be repeated against a stronger side. I bet on the Mexicans to go through to the final, with one more match of a lot of offensive construction.
