We come back again to the new matchday of Liga MX Guard1anes 2020, in which Cruz Azul remains the solo leader of the table, with 16 points, followed by León at only 2 points.
Pumas and América are behind with 13 points each and the matchday 8 of the competition starts to become more exciting.
Let’s have a look at the next matches that can make important changes in the table:
Club América vs Mazatlán 03/09/20
Las Águilas got the three points last matchday after beating Atletico San Luis with two goals as visitors. This has allowed them to move closer to the top of the table, now in fourth position. Mazatlán played against Tigres getting a 1-1 draw and this result takes them to the 16th place. In this match, América are the clear favourites.
Querétaro vs Toluca 04/09/20
Toluca fell 4-1 in the last matchday against Puebla, moving away from the top of the table and now in sixth place. All bets are on Toluca to win this match but an underdog Queretaro must be respected.
Pachuca vs Atlético San Luis 04/09/20
Los Tuzos, in seventh place in the table, will face this time San Luis that is still at the bottom of the rankings. The Potosinos will be trying to get points, as it is very important to get off the bottom of the table.
Necaxa vs León 05/09/20
After 4 matches without being defeated, on the last matchday Necaxa was beaten by Cruz Azul 3-0, placing them in 11th place, far away from La Fiera, which is second place in the table. This next encounter with Necaxa gives Los Panzas Verdes a full advantage and they will continue their line to the highest position of the table.
Club Tijuana vs Monterrey 05/09/20
Tijuana, who lost against Pumas 3-0 in the last round, is in 14th position and will be facing a Monterrey, in fifth position, who have not lost in the last five games and will be looking to remain unbeaten. This will be a difficult match for los Xolos who are going through a negative moment.

Juárez vs Santos Laguna 05/09/20
Juárez, who is in the dangerous 15th position only won a match in the competition and is going to face Santos, in 11th place, who comes from winning Querétaro in the last round. Juárez has not been able to have good results, even though their game has not been so bad, but fortune has not been with them, so now in this match against Santos who are only two points ahead, Juárez can force the luck to go with them this time.
Pumas vs Puebla 06/09/20
Pumas finally broke their losing streak and on the seventh matchday they won with a resounding 3-0 victory over Tijuana, placing them in third place. Puebla, meanwhile, in ninth place, beat Toluca 4-1 last round. La Franja is very motivated now and will try to get the 3 points in their next match with Pumas.
Atlas vs Cruz Azul 06/09/20
This will be a very unbalanced match since it will face the leader of the competition with the last. Cruz Azul are unstoppable in their way to win the competition and will play against Atlas, who are in the worst position and as if that were not enough, as visitors. These are not the best circumstances but the result can surprise .
Tigres vs Guadalajara 06/09/20
Guadalajara broke their losing streak and drew with Pachuca last matchday. For the fifth time in seven games, Las Chivas left without scoring, a situation that is worsening and that placed them in 12th position at two points below Tigres, who are not doing very well in the competition either. In this final match of the eight matchday, both teams will be looking for the 3 points on their way to climb higher positions on the table, so the match can be a fight, specially for Tigres who has the top scorer of the competition, Gignac, who will be greedy to score.
