Liga MX Apertura 2022: quarter final, teams, dates, kick-off times

We now know the eight teams that will battle for this season’s Liga MX Apertura crown after Puebla defeated Chivas on penalties on Sunday.

Liga MX Apertura 2022 quarter-finals

Sunday night saw the playoffs for the Apertura 2022 in Liga MX come to an end and we now have the eight teams that will be playing in the quarter-finals of this tournament. In the last game of the ‘repechaje’, Puebla needed penalties to beat Chivas in a dramatic game at the Estadio Cuauhtemoc and became the fourth home side to progress after Cruz Azul, Tigres and Toluca had already seen off opposition from Club León, Necaxa and Juárez, respectively.

Incidentally, this was the first time since the re-introduction of this ‘wildcard’ round that all the home sides progressed to the next stage.

Club América are still many people’s favourites to lift the trophy, with ‘Las Águilas’ still the form side in Mexico having won 11 of their past 12 official games.

Dark horse

Cruz Azul will face Monterrey in the quarter-finals and the side from the capital are another of the form teams in Mexico, having put together a run of five consecutive wins. Raúl Gutiérrez has got ‘La Máquina’ running smoothly and a surprise against ‘Los Rayados’ is not out of the question.
