Chivas had to go through a difficult Toluca side in the semifinal of the Liga MX playoffs. Their first leg was a thrilling 1-1 draw, and in the return, they once again saw a 1-1 final score. Due to the seeding process, Chivas advances despite not winning.

Tigres and Tijuana Xolos faced off, but it was all Tigres from the first half of the first match. A 2-0 win in Tigres’ home looked to be enough, and it was. They ended up keeping cool and scoring another two on the road in a win to send them to the final.

The first match will be Thursday, May 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET.

The second match was against Germany, but the two sides could not find a winner in the 0-0 draw. Mexico’s next match is against a very poised and dangerous Venezuela side on Friday, May 26 at 4:00 a.m. ET.
