And we continue with the MX League in this Guard1anes 2020 in which there is a new leader on the table, after playing matchday 8.
Now Club León is in first place with 17 points, after winning against Necaxa.
The former leader Cruz Azul were defeated on their visit to Atlas, interrupting a run of three consecutive victories and moving them into third position, only one point behind the leader and Pumas, the only undefeated team in the competition.
On matchday 9, these are the games that we will enjoy in the week.
Atlético San Luis vs Necaxa 09/09/20
San Luis is at the bottom of the table, after the defeat with Pachuca and this is the fourth match without a win. Necaxa is in 15th position, which is also not in its best moment after losing against Club León. It will be a game to win higher positions that both teams need so much.
Toluca vs Juárez 09/09/20
Toluca is in 7th position, lost against Querétaro 4-1 revealing the fragility of its defence. Los Diablos are Guard1anes 2020’s most scored team with 18 goals conceded. Juarez was able to contain Santos’ attack, but ended up drawing, putting them in a dangerous 16th place. Toluca is the favourite in this match but both teams have to improve.
Monterrey vs Atlas 09/09/20
Los Rayados, after two consecutive wins, lost 2-1 in their visit to Tijuana and stagnated in the classification, without being able to be among the four best teams of the tournament.
Atlas’ defensive wall withstood Cruz Azul’s attack and eventually won the match. This made the Guadalajara team leave the last place of the classification and reached eight points, and now in the 14th position.
Guadalajara vs Querétaro 09/09/20
A convincing win by Chivas over Tigres helped them to climb up the overall standings, now in eighth place. On the other hand, Queretaro showed their attacking play and this led to a 4-1 victory over Toluca placing them in 9th position, behind Chivas. In this match, the Gallos Blancos will try to follow their line and get the 3 points against their opponents.
Puebla vs Club América 09/09/20
La Franja played the match against Pumas with four absences, as a result of contagion from COVID-19, among them their goal scorer Santiago Ormeño, which reduced their ability to react by losing 4-1 against Pumas, the only undefeated team in the competition.
For America, in fourth place, it was not difficult to control the match against Mazatlán and in the end los Águilas obtained a comfortable 3-1 victory.

León vs Tigres UANL 10/09/20
After beating Necaxa as a visitor, Club León is the new leader of the table with 17 points and in this matchday 9 they will face Tigres.
Tigres have been badly affected by the absence of their Argentinian goalkeeper Nahule Guzman due to his COVID-19 contagion, and were unable to win at home against Chivas, going four games without a win and now in 10th position. In this next match with León, the Felinos will have to prepare very well to get the 3 points against the leaders.
Cruz Azul vs Pachuca 10/09/20
Cruz Azul went from first to third place on Matchday 8, after the defeat suffered at Atlas’ home as a visitor, due to the lack of effectiveness in front of the Zorros’ goal. This is their second defeat of the Guard1anes 2020 and as a consequence they left the leadership of the tournament, now in the hands of León.
Pachuca, placed in fifth position after a 3-1 win over Atletico de San Luis, last in the table. Forecasts indicate that Cruz Azul will be the winner of this match.
Mazatlán vs Club Tijuana 10/09/20
Mazatlán lost once again, this time against America 3-1, and with this defeat already added up to five games without a win, which places them in the penultimate position.
Tijuana showed their good offensive game and they beat Monterrey 2-1 in the last matchday. This places them in the 11th position. Betting odds place the teams evenly which makes this match exciting and unpredictable.
Santos Laguna vs Pumas UNAM 10/09/20
Although Santos could get 1 point when they visited Juárez in the last matchday they eventually lost. The Guerreros are in a very poor shape as they have only been able to win one of their last five matches.
Pumas, however, are in second position and he is the only undefeated team in the competition. This gives them the confidence enough to face Santos in this next match and get the 3 points that can give them back the leadership in the table. All bets are on Pumas to win this match.
