Mazatlan lost again, this time against Juarez, and with these 3 defeats in a row, they are now in 15th place. They will face Querétaro on matchday 8, who is in 9th place after drawing with Puebla.

Toluca vs Atlas 28/02/21

Toluca is not the leader anymore after losing the match against Cruz Azul and now is in the 2nd position. This weekend they will face Altlas, who lost against America and who is placed 11th on the table. This position is thanks to the referee committee awarding them the 3 points that America lost because of an improper alignment of the Federico Viñas. This time Altlas will have to play hard to beat the second positioned.

América vs Pachuca 28/02/21

The third classified of the table, America, won their first away match on matchday 7, beating Atlas 2-0. However, they finally lost their points in favor of Atlas because of the improper alignment of the player Federico Viñas. The player was on America´s bench without having been registered for that match. They are going to play against Pachuca this weekend, who are last on the table without any victory since the competition started.


León vs Cruz Azul 28/02/21

Leon won over Pumas last weekend 1-0 and could go up till 14th position. On the other hand,  Cruz Azul is now the well-deserved current leader of the competition. The team had an excellent performance in the last matchday playing against Toluca. It was a real power game where La Máquina won 3-2 in a match that was one of the best games of the tournament. The current Liga MX champions and the actual leader of the table will face each other this weekend with odds pointing León as the favorite.

Monterrey vs Tijuana 01/03/21

On matchday 7 we saw Monterrey draw 1-1 against Necaxa and Tijuana lose 2-3 against Tigres. Rayados in 6th position and Xolos in 4th will fight to get the 3 points and climb the table in the next round 8. Odds are in favor of Monterrey this time.

Santos Laguna vs Juárez 01/03/21

Santos lost against San Luis and is now in fifth place, while the Bravos of Juárez won 1-0 against Mazatlán. The next weekend is the time when Guerreros and Bravos will face each other again, this time in Santos Laguna’s home.

Guadalajara vs Pumas 01/03/21

The last game of matchday 8 will be facing Guadalajara against Pumas. Las Chivas, placed in the 13th position after its draw with Pachuca, is in the need of a win. But more in the need are   Pumas, that continue without recovering after losing against León in the last matchday. This is their 5 game without a win and the team is the second last in the table. They will have to play hard to beat las Chivas in this game, but also to start positioning themselves in safe places.
