We had one of the most exciting finals in recent history over the Holiday season, and just like that, we are heading into the new season of Liga MX football.

Here are three predictions for the upcoming Clausura…

Chivas will enter the Liguilla as the #1 seed

With talent all over the field, it’s a bit of a mystery as to why Chivas hasn’t really been able to put together a masterful product. That being said, there’s a good chance they will finally hit on all cylinders consistently.

With names like Orbelin Pineda, Alan Pulido, Isaac Brizuela and new signing Rodolfo Pizarro, Chivas should be able to strike plenty of fear in the hearts of opposing defenses, which is why I see them topping the league heading into next season’s playoffs.

Club América will struggle, but manage to make the playoffs

Many times when teams lose and gain players, it’ll look good on paper, but that’s not how the sports world works. With the loss of several players like Rubens Sambueza and Darwin Quintero, Club América will not be able to find their chemistry right off the bat.

However, I do see them finally hitting a decent enough of stride to where they make the 7th or 8th place in the playoffs.

Tigres will repeat as Champions

They are just too powerful. Tigres are one of the best attacking teams in the league, and they are showing no signs of slowing down. They will not hit road bumps simply because they hold the title of reigning champions. Instead, they will use that as fuel for the Clausura.

It won’t be a perfect season, but they will save it for the Liguilla, and repeat as Champions, claiming their 6th Liga MX trophy.
