Clarity in an Unclear World

With the completion of week fourteen in the Liga MX, just three weeks remain in the regular season. The Liguilla is beginning to take shape. The cream has risen to the top and the other stuff is left below feeling bitter and angry. With three remaining matches for the majority of the league there's a wide range of mathematical possibilities for the table's final resting place. However, a realistic look at the current standings reveals a fairly clear picture of where this thing is headed.

Liga MX to Save My Mental Health

It has been one week since the painful Mexico elimination from the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Like a gullible woman who tells herself that her cheating boyfriend will be faithful this time around, I believed that Mexico would reach the quarterfinals of a World Cup (and maybe even beyond). And like this hypothetical women, I was left heartbroken, and hating myself for believing.

The Away Goal Final

The grand finale of the Liga MX kicks off once again tonight with the defending champion Leon facing the Tuzos of Pachuca. This anticipated match-up pits two teams with a vastly different temperament. The obvious juxtaposition of the consistent force of Leon and the flamboyant wild-card of Pachuca make for a final of intrigue. Coming up with a clear picture of how these 180 minutes will play out is a near impossibility. This could go plenty of different ways.
