With only three matchdays left in the tournament, the mentioned teams start to position themselves in the first places, fighting for the title, while others are satisfied with being in playoff places.
Mazatlán, Querétaro, and San Luis are in the last positions of the Guard1anes 2020 with 13, 12, and 11 points respectively. However, there are still places to be defined and now, at this stage of the tournament, there is the fight for the playoff places, since the teams want to have the chance of being within the 12 qualifying places.
Here we have the next matches of the week:
Puebla vs León 24/10/20
