Liga MX W2W4: Leon's playoff chase

Tigres beat Leon to lift another Liga MX title but respect between fans was more notable than the game

Tigres' Andre-Pierre Gignac led the celebrations as the club won its seventh Liga MX trophy..

LEON, Mexico -- The highlight of Sunday's Liga MX 2019 Clausura final second leg wasn't Tigres lifting the trophy in Estadio Leon. It wasn't even the guy dressed as a lion -- Leon is "lion" in Spanish -- who whisked off his huge head and proposed to his girlfriend ahead of kickoff outside the stadium, or the ice-lolly seller that discussed flavors with French striker Andre-Pierre Gignac. And don't mention the 0-0 draw itself, which wasn't anywhere near as entertaining as was expected.

Liga MX final: Tigres look to cement their legacy; Leon eye storybook ending

Tigres have a 1-0 first-leg lead, but it is far too close to call entering the second leg at Leon's Nou Camp.

LEON, Mexico -- Ten years ago this month, Tigres stared relegation in the face.

Approaching the last round of matches of the 2009 Clausura, the Monterrey-based club had to rely on Club America not being defeated by Necaxa to remain in Mexico's first division. Las Aguilas did them the favor and got the victory.

Perhaps nothing highlights the meteoric rise of the northern club more than how close it came to relegation only a decade ago. If that Necaxa result had gone the other way, Ricardo "Tuca"...

A first-half goal from Andre-Pierre Gignac sealed a 1-0 victory for Tigres over Leon in the first leg of the Liga MX 2019 Clausura final on Thursday.

Gignac swept the ball in from close range in the 21st minute to draw level with Tomas Boy as Tigres' highest-ever goal-scorer with 104 goals. 

Leon had finished the Clausura regular season in first place, but second-placed Tigres took the game to the opposition from the start and could've won by a wider margin with better decision-making in the...

Liga MX final: Leon looking to cap storybook season vs. Tigres

As MLS and Liga MX mull a new tournament like the SuperLiga of the mid-2000s, Taylor Twellman says the time is right for a new competition.

Club Leon (1) vs. Tigres (2)

First leg: Thursday, 9:45 p.m. ET, Estadio Universitario

Second leg: Sunday, 9:06 p.m. ET, Estadio Leon

The 2019 Clausura final pits the undisputed team of the season, Leon, against the team of the decade, Tigres, in a battle between the two highest finishers in the regular season. If you go on form, Leon just about has the edge, but if the criteria is pedigree, then there is no doubt that Tigres have the advantage.

Here's how the two teams shape up ahead of the 2019...

Guido Pizarro leads Tigres' celebrations after winning their seventh Liga MX title on Sunday.

Tigres lifted their seventh Liga MX title on Sunday, overcoming Leon 1-0 on aggregate after a 0-0 tie in the second leg in Estadio Leon.

A solitary goal from Andre-Pierre Gignac in the first leg was enough to give Tigres the 2019 Clausura championship, although they had to rely on keeper Nahuel Guzman making two smart saves in the last 10 minutes to keep Leon from scoring.

The title was Tigres' fifth this decade, continuing the northern Mexican club's period of recent success in the league.
