Liga MX returns tonight. At 8:00 p.m. EST Morelia will play Monterrey, and at 10:00 p.m. EST Tijuana will play Cruz Azul. These matches will kick off the 2017 Apertura, and we could not be more excited.
Liga MX is consistently one of the most entertaining leagues in the world, and is underrated in terms of quality. It's fun, good soccer mixed with fights and foghorns and all manner of craziness soccer fans have come to expect fron other soccer fans. Liga MX is also the most-watched soccer league in the USA, surpassing MLS and even the English Premier League.
So, if you're one of those folks who has somehow missed out on Liga MX, give it a shot tonight. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Also: these dudes rip shots from anywhere, as long as there's even a little daylight. This is not a league where defenses sit back and bunker. It's up and down lunacy for 90 minutes and there's usually a red card along the way.
