Liga MX Power Rankings: Cruz Azul stays hot; Chivas, Morelia lay eggs

MEXICO CITY -- As Liga MX breaks for the first FIFA international dates of the budding season, we can mark an informal midpoint to the season with eight games down and nine to go in the Apertura 2018 campaign. 

While one team sits head and shoulders above the rest in Cruz Azul, another (Atlas) has still not won a game and just fired its manager after an offensive output of one goal in the first eight matches. Even then, all 18 teams still possess a mathematical chance to make the playoffs --...

Cruz Azul are at full steam ahead; Atlas finally breaks goal drought

The international break brings a temporary halt to proceedings in Liga MX, but it's been an exciting weekend in Mexico's top division. Here are ten talking points from round eight of games in the 2018 Apertura:

1. Cruz Azul, Alvarado continue to impress

The pitch inside the Estadio Azteca may be in an embarrassing state, but Cruz Azul's fortunes continue to soar.

La Maquina overcame Veracruz 4-1 in the famous stadium on Saturday in what turned out to be a comfortable win over spirited opposition.


Young Mexico team enters era that could be both productive, painful

With Tuca Ferretti set to take control of Mexico's national team on an interim basis, Alejandro Moreno likens him to a respected substitute teacher.

The naming of the new manager will give a clearer pointer to Mexico's direction over coming years, but interim coach Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti's squad for two upcoming friendlies does very much feel like the first step in what could well be an awkward, painful yet also promising renovation ahead of Qatar 2022.

We're still in that period of fierce debate about El Tri of the first games of the post-Juan Carlos Osorio era (Uruguay on Sept. 7 and the United States on Sept. 11) -- while the failure...

America get late point in Clasico Capitalino; Cruz Azul still unbeaten

Five takeaways from this past weekend as we approach the halfway stage of the 2018 Apertura regular season in Liga MX.

1. America earns late tie in epic Clasico Capitalino

Club America fans held up banners reading "it is not a Clasico" ahead of Saturday's Clasico Capitalino clash against Pumas. They don't think the Mexico City derby should be considered a "Clasico" in the true sense of the word. But the celebrations after Henry Martin netted a late equaliser highlighted exactly just how much this...

Liga MX W2W4: Mexican youngsters out to make their mark; Pachuca aim to topple Pumas

Club America's Diego Lainez will be just one of several promising youngsters on display this weekend across Liga MX.

Three weeks into this Apertura, the Liga MX table and its storylines are taking shape. Our Liga MX writers Tom Marshall and Cesar Hernandez each pick a theme or matchup to watch for this weekend.

Mexican youngsters out to make mark

Whether the new youngster rule for the 2018 Apertura has anything to do with more young players getting chances this season is up for debate, but what isn't is that youngsters have been making an impact this season.

And with the World Cup blues slowly fading, this...

Club America's Diego Lainez showing why he's Mexico's next great young talent

Diego Lainez of America celebrates after scoring.
Diego Lainez's two goals vs. Pachuca announced his presence on the Liga MX stage.

Diego Lainez is the type of player you can recall the time and place you saw him play live for the very first time.

The ball seems to be glued to his left foot when he dribbles, the opposition players smell danger and approach, often leaving space for teammates, and there is a grace about him that few players possess. He invites the spectator to imagine when he's on the ball, both in the immediate sense of where a play will end up, as well as just how high the 18-year-old's ceiling could be.
