In the penultimate round of Apertura 2017 regular season, six of the eight playoff places are still up for grabs in both Liga MX and Ascenso MX. With only five of the 34 teams in the top two divisions mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, there is plenty to play for many teams.
And among the compelling matches this weekend is a Clasico Tapatio at Estadio Chivas that both “The Sacred Herd” and Los Zorros need all the points from in order to improve their playoff chances. And on Friday night, Leon could be the next team to book their ticket to La Liguilla should they beat a Xolos side who just parted ways with manager Eduardo Coudet and could sack combatant Apertura arrivals Damian Musto and Matias Aguirregaray. Also, the final match of the Jornada could also be a partidazo candidate when Necaxa look to improve their playoff place by trying to surprise Tigres UANL at El Volcan.
In the action from Jornada 14 in Ascenso MX viewable in the United States, Venados will look to cement their playoff place on Friday when they host already eliminated Potros UAEM, while on Saturday, two playoff outsiders look to keep their Liguilla hopes alive in Culiacan when Dorados take on Atletico San Luis.
