    Clausura 2019: Who'll win, please tell us @Regulus Tera, @Philip J. Fry, @Mr. P Mosh, @Hugo Sanchez, @Smallchief

    It's playoff time - videos are on Televisa Deportes and the LigaMX Youtube, and SBnation did a league guide.

    The spring regular season ended like this:
    Group 1
    [​IMG]
    Group 2
    [​IMG]

    In January, week 5, Tigres v Rayadas was as spectacular as ever :eek:

    Tigres UANL 1 - 1 Monterrey (Martínez 24' - Cadena 95')

    Chivas Guadalajara were surprisingly eliminated in Group 2, losing to Tigres 2-1 in April, and León took 4th place ahead of Chivas. Their week 9 match is online:

    América won Group 1 with 12 wins in 16 games, ahead of Pachuca (2nd) and Puebla (3rd), who América beat in week 13.

    Puebla 0 - 2 América (Cazares 18', Espinosa 65')

    We've just had the first leg of the quarterfinals:
    [​IMG]

    In Mexico City, UNAM's lead was overturned by Desirée Monsiváis of Monterrey, and León v América attracted about 30,000 fans:

    León 0 - 1 América (Espinosa 79' pen.)

    19 teams for the season 2019/20 from July, the league says.

    [​IMG] Atlético San Luis Femenil will join the women's Liga MX.

    And the league will be a single division. Top 8 teams go to the playoffs (Liguilla).

    "In Liga MX Femenil, the group format [2 groups] will vanish and each team will now be allowed to field six players older than 25 and six U.S.-Mexico dual-citizens. Previously, only players born in Mexico could feature in Liga MX Femenil. The 2019 Apertura season will also begin on July 19." - (fmfstateofmind)


    I could never tell the logic of the 2 groups - were they regional? Or based on the previous tables? :confused:

    That's an interesting change of direction. I followed the MX Liga the first couple of seasons then it dropped off my radar. My interest waned as Chivas Femenil waned. I especially liked watching Tania Morales -- she with the wild hair -- play.

    So, now we'll have some gringas on the teams. And more old pros. Good news, I think

    I'm no sure how the groups were originally decided, but the were static between all four half-seasons save for Morelia being bumped when the league went from 16 to 18. I think it's semi-regional, with a fairly strong north-south split save for Tijuana of all teams being in the southern group.

    (From the Chivas v Tigres 0-0, in February)


    I suppose Chivas are in a blip – they only just missed the playoffs. The club has released the coach, Luis Manuel Díaz, and they spoke to Roberto Medina (ex-Mexico coach who lost out in 2018) but didn't choose him.

    Sensationally, the new Chivas coach is Ramón Villa Zevallos, who leaves the champions Tigres after less than a year as their coach.

    From the Canada thread:

    Mexican-Americans are in the league now.

    Renae Cuéllar signed for Xolas Tijuana and is having an amazing season, in the 2019/20 Apertura:

    Quick reviews of August:


    Week 4: "Cruz Azul just keeps on winning. Last year’s doormat is now 4W 0D 0L after defeating Monarcas Morelia 2-1 ... [goals] Daniela Monroy and Alejandra Curiel."
    - https://www.fmfstateofmind.com/2019/8/7/20756063/liga-mx-femenil-recap-2019-apertura-week-4
    Note - they lost their next 4 games in a row

    [​IMG]



    Week 5: "Five weeks into the season we are starting to see teams fall into place a bit. Pachuca, Monterrey, Cruz Azul, and Toluca all seem to be asserting themselves as the cream of the crop, while Juárez and Necaxa are struggling to get things figured out"

    Chivas are still struggling in 8th place - wonderful opening goal by Rubi Soto, but Leon (16th!) won it with 2 goals by Sanjuana Muñoz, from a defensive blunder and a possible offside run:

    Week 6: "While the relative youth of Liga MX Femenil lends an air of unpredictability to the league, it’s good to see what is happening in San Luis Potosí with Atlético San Luis. While only their first year in the league, Atleti has won two straight at home and attendance is averaging over 11,600 people."

    It's the most entertaining league, bar none :) It's good that they televise a lot of it (and important).

    Hey kids, check out these goles! [​IMG]

    Pachuca 3 - 1 Cruz Azul | Apertura 2019 - Jornada 8
    - www.youtube.com/watch?v=i77PuLNdhRM
    [​IMG]

    Goals: Ana Paola López 20', Viridiana Salazar 77', Norma Gaitan 86' - Itzel Cruz 48'


    Also in week 8, the intense Nuevo León derby:

    Tigres UANL 3 - 2 Rayadas Monterrey | Apertura 2019 - Jornada 8
    - www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNrHx8PZxYs
    [​IMG]

    Liliana Mercado 45', Katty Martínez 60', 63' - Diana Laura Evangelista 9', Mónica Monsiváis 49'


    After week 9, the midway point, Pachuca were still in front on 22pts, Rayadas had 21pts, Tigres 16, Atlas/Toluca 15, Tijuana/América 14.

    And a four-way tie for the 8th playoff place!
    Querétaro/Chivas/Cruz Azul/Morelia 13pts

    Here's why:

    (Warning: GAME OF THE DECADE and COMMENTATOR OF THE CENTURY)

    The Houston Dash are now 1-1 vs LMXF competition, and LMXF registers is first win in three tries vs US clubs, as an early goal against Tigres was undone by two late goals against the Dash, the second of which was a penalty. Would love to see some more competition between the countries.
