On the Brink: The Final Two

The end is upon us. Two teams remain in the relegation fight with just two weeks remaining. Chivas and Veracruz long ago excused themselves from this battle and recently mathematically confirmed their safety. Puebla has found themselves on the bottom for some time. Their fight can't be questioned; their quality is highly questionable. Puebla continue to drop chances for attainable points. With two games left, their fate is truly on a razor's edge.

On the Brink: Week 7-8

Puebla began the weekend for the fearful four with its second consecutive win. They had the low-hanging fruit of facing Monarcas in Morelia. Despite Morelia netting an early goal, Puebla plucked the said fruit with a pair of goals on each side of the halftime break. There's nothing like a relegation fight to get the most out of a team. This battle now has Puebla in rarified territory. If the Liguilla started today, Puebla would actually be participating. Craziness.

On the Brink: Week 3-4

Jornada 3 in Liga MX action saw several teams put their mark on the early season. Santos Laguna, who had struggled in their first two matches, put up four on regional rival Monterrey. Chiapas got a nice win over Atlas, albeit red card assisted. Pumas got their first win in a hard-fought battle with Toluca.

The Away Goal Final

The grand finale of the Liga MX kicks off once again tonight with the defending champion Leon facing the Tuzos of Pachuca. This anticipated match-up pits two teams with a vastly different temperament. The obvious juxtaposition of the consistent force of Leon and the flamboyant wild-card of Pachuca make for a final of intrigue. Coming up with a clear picture of how these 180 minutes will play out is a near impossibility. This could go plenty of different ways.

A Family Affair: The Idiosyncratic Eight Liga MX Liguilla Teams

Family gatherings are special for many reasons. Time away from those you hold dear can be tough. The times when everyone can come together are some of our most treasured moments. It's also a time to remember that insanity abounds. The peculiarities of family know no bounds.

The Liguilla is in many ways a coming together of a diverse bunch. These eight characters now meet again to decide one victor. How exactly it is going to go down is anyone's guess, but it will surely be entertaining.

Cruz Azul v. Xolos: Breaking Down the CCL Semifinal

Bottom-level Tigres stun league-leading Cruz Azul


Tigres haven't given us much of anything to applaud until this weekend, when they handed league leading Cruz Azul their first loss of 2014. The Azul y Blanca have managed to go nine games without losing a match or their spot at the top of the table, but an early penalty got Tigres on the board in under 10 minutes, and despite a hard pressing effort, Cruz Azul were unable to pounce back.
