Hablaliga MX: Veracruz Favorites For Relegation

The Red Sharks Are Sliding Toward Relegation

Check out what's happening in La Liga here.

Hi, I'm Giselle Cesin with The18, and this is Hablaliga MX.

After finishing dead last in the Apertura with just 14 points, Veracruz have quite a hole to dig themselves out of going into the Clausura.

Veracruz need to make up an eight-point differential with Queretaro in order to avoid relegation, and, having ended 2017 with five straight losses, their recent form suggests they will not be able to do that. 

Liga MX relegation is decided over the course of three years, and during the last three years Veracruz's goal differential is more than twice as bad as any other Liga MX club.

The Red Sharks are in trouble, and they haven't really brought anyone in to save them.
