With six weeks of the regular season left, this week’s Burrito Wrap assesses some issues at the top and bottom of the division.

 

Relegation Battle Spoilt By Rules…

 

With just six games left to play the relegation battle is going down to the wire. Atlas took a valuable three points off Veracruz on Saturday and Atlante shipped five in the capital. Having now seen a stream of remarkable results over the last few weeks it now looks like it’s going to be one of the tightest battles in recent memory.

League leaders Cruz Azul strengthened their hold on first place in the Liga MX, as a clinical 1-0 victory over second-placed Toluca saw them extend their advantage to six points.

Cruz Control

Cruz Azul was always expected to be in contention for a Liguilla place. No matter the difficulties encountered, anything less than a top eight finish would have been disaster. The Liguilla was just never expected to be nearly locked-up midway through the season.

After its absence last week the Burrito Wrap is back with its usual three tasty stories.

Puma’s Renaissance is a thing of beauty…
