Although it will be a sports packed weekend, Liga MX has a nice lineup of games for fans to catch. There will be a lot to watch out for, so make sure to set your DVR if you may miss a game or two.
Here are three games that will intrigue fans alike…
Saturday, August 20
Pachuca vs Tigres (5:00 PAC, 8:00 ET)
Two of the best in Mexico will be facing off on Saturday in what will be one of the best games of the weekend. Pachuca enters the match coming off a 3-0 drubbing of Pumas, while Tigres look for some points after drawing Toluca, 0-0.
It’ll be 2 vs 4 in the current standings, so the push to stay on top is going to be high. This will be an offensive powerful match, perfect for even the neutral fan.
Chivas vs Atlas (7:00 PAC, 10:00 ET)
Like rivalries? Well, Liga MX has the Clásico Tapatío back this weekend. This time around, Atlas is ahead of Chivas in the standings by two spots at #8. This is the last playoff spot, so beating your rival and staying in playoff position is going to be a massive motivational push for Atlas.

Chivas has been able to handle their rivals as of late, but they can’t sleep at the wheel because Atlas know how valuable a win here will be, for many different reasons.
