Now that international duty is over, it’s time for Liga MX to get back into action. There are several teams that control their own destiny, which sets up one exciting weekend of football.

Here’s is TheStoppageTime’s “what to watch for” this weekend in Mexico with the playoffs quickly approaching.

Veracruz vs Monarcas Morelia (11/21):

If there is one team that has the pressure on them, it’s Veracruz. They currently sit 8th in the table, only separated by one point with Monterrey and Morelia. This Saturday’s match with Morelia is one Veracruz needs to make sure they capitalize on, because anything less could be curtains on their chances at La Liguilla. A win for Morelia, however, could be enough of a boost to get them into the playoffs.

Prediction:

Veracruz 1, Morelia 1

Club América vs Pumas (11/21):

These two are secure for the playoffs, but don’t think that this is a sit back game. Pumas is on an absolute roll, and losing will not be on their minds come Saturday. Club América, on the other hand, has had an up and down season. They have some big wins, but also some head-scratching losses. This could be a chance to get that playoff chemistry going, because they will need it since their last match which was a loss to Monterrey.

Prediction:

Club América 2, Pumas 2

Toluca vs Monterrey (11/22)

This match may be the “must see” of the weekend. Toluca is going to the playoffs, as they are in 2nd place with 29 points. Monterrey is knocking on the door in 9th place with 23 points. As mentioned earlier, if Veracruz and Morelia are held to a draw, and Monterrey wins, then Monterrey claims the 8th place position (which sends them into La Liguilla). However, it won’t be easy, as Toluca has been a powerhouse all season long.

Prediction:

Toluca 1, Monterrey 2
