Pachuca is coming of a spectacular drubbing of Club América, 4-1. The confidence the Tuzos have is at an all-time high, while Monterrey was able to sneak by Atlas, 1-0. Here is another game where both teams seem to be hitting a rhythm, which sets up a great duel on Saturday.

Club León vs Tigres (January 30)*

Little did people expect Club León to take the reigns of the table, but after three matches they sit on top. Tigres will be looking for a chance to redeem themselves after a 2-2 draw with Chivas in the previous week.

This is an interesting matchup between two teams that have seen recent success in the Mexican league. This is why it is my “must see” game of the week!
