Burrito Wrap - 14th April

Copa Libertadores image
Two games left and the playoff race is as tight as ever while at the other end the relegation battle is concluded early. Welcome to the Burrito Wrap.
 
Plucky Atlante should fear for the future…
 
So, my prediction from a couple of weeks ago was wrong. Just as it seemed Atlante had hit an unlikely run of excellent form they suffered an end of season collapse and will now play in the Ascenso MX in the 2014-15 season.

After a one week break The Burrito Wrap returns to analyse some of the leading stories off the pitch. 
 
Green for El Tri…
 
Those who watched the weekend’s games will have noticed that the Nike-sponsored America, Atlas, Xolos and Pachuca all played in green in support of El Tri at the World Cup (interestingly Monterrey also have their kits made by Nike but didn’t play in green, maybe a reader can shed some light on the reason why?).

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.

The Best and Worst of Mexican Soccer 2013

It was a great year if you support Mexico's most popular club team. It was pretty terrible, otherwise. El Tri was an abomination. Club America were the most successful club team and then managed to parlay that into a national team coup d'état. It was ugly.

Yet, it's the time for reflection and glossing over the past twelve months in a holiday cookie-fueled haze. So without further ado, I give you the best and the worst of Mexican soccer 2013 ...

My Gut Feelings – Predictions of the Jornada 11

It’s this far in the Apertura 2013 and the jury is still out on who is the dominant candidate to win the Championship.

Let’s look at what we have here for this weekend and I will predict who will be the victor. Hopefully I do a better job than last week.

Liga MX Weekly Walkabout: Sept. 10, 2013

Torta Tuesday was slain and laid to waste six months ago. It has been stewing under the surface but is now finally arisen. Like a phoenix plowing up through the ashes, the Weekly Walkabout arrives to fill in the void. A different animal than when it left this earth, it does appear to be a stronger one(or at least one with more ridiculous comparisons to make).
