Pumas retain share of league lead after topsy-turvy MX weekend

U.S. and LA Galaxy legend Landon Donovan is presented at Club Leon and addresses his new fans for the first time.

It was a strange weekend in Liga MX, with four 0-0 draws and only two teams remaining undefeated after three rounds of matches of the 2018 Clausura.

Here are five talking points:

1. Pumas stay on top after Clasico draw

Sunday's 0-0 tie in the Clasico Capitalino between Pumas and Club America wasn't a classic, but it did leave Pumas undefeated and joint top of the Liga MX.

It's early days yet in the Liga MX Clausura but that doesn't mean there aren't important games aplenty. Our Liga MX correspondents look at three of the most intriguing matchups of the weekend, headlined by one of Mexico's biggest rivalries.

Pachuca vs. Lobos BUAP

Saturday's game isn't one that immediately jumps off the page. But it is a game that feels more vital to both teams than most other Liga MX matches this weekend.

New manager Diego Cocca's pragmatic approach has Tijuana looking up again

New manager Diego Cocca has changed the culture quickly at Tijuana.
Tijuana have a much more positive feel under new manager Diego Cocca.

A little less than three months ago, Tijuana made plenty of headlines across the Mexican media landscape, albeit for the wrong reasons.

Amidst the unexpected news on Oct. 30th that then-manager Eduardo Coudet would no longer be working with Tijuana, reports began to emerge that the team was struggling with payment problems. To make matters worse, suspected locker room issues were also reported to have played a role in Coudet's exit from the club.

Xolos were in shambles off the field, and despite...

Landon Donovan's decision to come out of retirement at age 35 and play for Club Leon of Liga MX was met with all sorts of surprise and skepticism.

As a result, this week we asked our Liga MX correspondents Tom Marshall, Nayib Moran and Eric Gomez to assess Donovan's chances to succeed in Liga MX and ultimately, predict whether he stars or flops at Leon. Here are their answers:

Jesus Gallardo's versatility could earn him a place in Mexico's World Cup squad

Pumas' Jesus Gallardo has gotten off to a bright start to the Clausura.
Jesus Gallardo has had a bright start to the season for Pumas in Liga MX.

The urgency that there's no time to waste has been felt in the first two weeks of the 2018 Clausura. For some there will only be 17 regular season matches to impress, while others could end up having as many as 23 if their club reaches the Liga MX final in late May. The bulk of Mexico's national team in next summer's World Cup will be formed by players who are playing in Europe, but there will still be a significant bunch coming from Liga MX.

On this road to Russia, so specific, and at the same...

Liga MX 101: The terms, rivalries and names you need to know

U.S. and LA Galaxy legend Landon Donovan is presented at Club Leon and addresses his new fans for the first time.
Alejandro Moreno is skeptical of Landon Donovan's decision to join Liga MX side Leon after his return to the LA Galaxy disappointed.

But it is also the most watched on television in the United States and has been steadily improving its international appeal in recent years.

With the 2018 Clausura underway, we thought now would be a timely opportunity to straighten out some of the terminology that is...
