Here are five themes to keep track of in the months to follow.

1. Club America, Chivas to bounce back?

Club America and Chivas had very different 2017 Apertura tournaments but the uniting factor was the disappointment with which Mexico's two giants ended their respective campaigns.

Chivas went in as reigning champion and stalled en route to a 13th place regular-season...

Liga MX season-in-a-sentence reviews for every team

Tigres celebrate their 2017 Apertura title win over Monterrey.
It was another great season for Tigres, who have won the Apertura three seasons in a row.

Thanks to a competition format that schedules two tournaments per year, Liga MX seasons can at times feel like a whirlwind. With two playoff runs and two ensuing champions in less than 12 months, the scheduling might seem chaotic, but it's what truly makes the Mexican first division so thrilling to follow.
