Cruz Azul and León will face one another in the standout fixture of the play-off round as Chivas travel to Puebla’s Estadio Cuauhtémoc.

Update:
The path to the Liga MX Apertura 2022 title becomes clearer

The regular phase of the Liga MX 2022 Apertura has concluded and we now know the names of the 12 teams that will vie for the title with no changes to the top 4 after the final round of games with Club America leading the ranking followed by Monterrey CF.

The most appetizing fixture from the playoff games (that will be played next weekend) as one off single ties sees 7th placed Cruz Azul playing 10th place Club Leon with Chivas Guadalajara set to travel to Puebla.

After winning 11 of their last 12 matches, Club America are firm favourites for the title and without doubt the in-form side in the top flight as the team from Coapa look for their first domestic league glory since winning the 2018 Apertura title.
