Hablaliga MX: The Top 10 Players In Liga MX

This week we’ll be going over 10 players who have impressed most in Liga MX this season. Let's get right to it:

1. Aviles Hurtado

The best player on the best team. Simple as that.

2. Mauro Boselli Boselli

He is almost certainly going to win the golden boot again this season, and Leon are looking like favorites for a playoff spot.

3. Enner Valencia

The former West Ham man leads Tigres’ attack, the most dangerous in Liga MX

The Reason Liga MX Splits Its Season Into Apertura And Clausura

To the Eurocentric soccer fan, the competition format for Liga MX is alien, weird and perhaps even unnatural. The Mexican soccer league has two tournaments (the Apertura and Clausura) per season, each with its own playoffs (la liguilla). Two champions are crowned each season. It’s all a bit confusing to outsiders — and even some Liga MX fans. 

Why does Liga MX use the Apertura and Clausura split-season format? Forgive us if this sounds a bit cynical, but as with most things in sports, it’s mostly about money.

This Is How You Win The Most Bizarre Penalty Shootout Of All Time

Sometimes it feels like fate is inevitable. But then there are times when even as you do the worst you could possibly do, things go your way. This happened in the Club America vs Queretaro penalty shootout in Copa MX.

Copa MX is underestimated by most. However, on occasion it delivers quite entertaining games. Sometimes this entertaining quality is not granted by the quality of the game but rather the opposite. This was the case when Club América hosted Querétaro in the Copa MX quarter finals.

USMNT And El Tri Set To Battle For 18-Year-Old Jonathan Gonzalez, Liga MX’s Breakthrough Talent Of The Season

C.F. Monterrey are cruising at the top of the Liga MX table with the playoffs looming, and they have the league’s stingiest defense to thank for that. Los Rayados have conceded only nine goals in 14 matches, and 18-year-old defensive midfielder Jonathan Gonzalez has played a large role in accomplishing that mean feat.

Chivas Manager Matias Almeyda Would Be An Ideal Fit For The Leicester City Job

Right when we thought things couldn't get worse for Chivas de Guadalajara, a shocking rumor comes roaring from overseas: The Mirror has reported that Chivas manager Matias Almeyda is now a “shock contender” to succeed Craig Shakespeare as Leicester City manager.

Although there had been persistent talk that Almeyda’s days managing Chivas were numbered, nothing had yet been solidified.

MLS vs Liga MX: What We Should Learn So The USA Return To The World Cup

And so the MLS vs Liga MX debate sparks up again. Just about everything concerning soccer in the USA is being questioned since the USMNT got eliminated from the 2018 World Cup. The critiques involve everything from the USMNT team to more administrative issues like who should manage the national side after last week’s catastrophe and why. As would be expected, also the MLS is now being targeted for criticism.

Eliminated Chivas Will Try To Ruin Club América’s Season In The Superclásico

Club América will host arch rivals Chivas de Guadalajara at Estadio Azteca with the two teams looking at very different scenarios. Twelve weeks into the Apertura 2017, champions Chivas de Guadalajara have absolutely no chance of making it to the Liguilla, the playoff round featuring the best eight teams of Liga MX.

After winning a much-desired title last season, “El rebaño sagrado” seemingly opted to sit in the armchair. With only five more matches to be played, Chivas occupies the 16th place in the table, followed only by Puebla and Pumas UNAM.
