Cruz Azul vs Monterrey (Saturday, January 20)

The first match of Saturday is quite the intriguing one between two greats of the league. Monterrey is coming off a big battle with Chivas in a 2-2 draw, and things don’t get any easier when they face Cruz Azul. It was a tough loss to Pumas in the previous week, but being the home side will be the advantage when they come up against the balanced XI of Monterrey.

Tigres vs Club América (Saturday, January 20)

It won’t even be a month since the Liga MX final and we are going to see a massive rematch in the new season. It’s easy to say Tigres will be favorites in this one being the home side, however, they are coming off a poor loss to Atlas. Yet, Club América hasn’t been looking great after a 2-1 loss on the road in Toluca. Don’t let that diminish this match because both teams are going to turn up the heat when they face off on Saturday…and it may not be the last time they see each other this season.

Tijuana Xolos vs Chivas (Saturday, January 20)

Tijuana Xolos are coming off a massive win, showcasing their offensive firepower. This Saturday, they get to try and keep that rhythm up against none other than the revamped Chivas. Chivas are coming off a 2-2 draw with Monterrey, but they are smelling blood, as they felt they could’ve walked away with a victory if it weren’t for two red cards. This should be an explosive battle, and one to write down on the schedule.
