Liga MX showcases crunch Mexico City derby as Pumas face Cruz Azul

Hernán Cristante debuts with a draw, taking on Toluca. Atlas playing with 10 men's at the 45 minute didn't manage to surpass the 1-1 result after leading the game.
Paco Palencia will try to make it two wins in two games when Pumas face off against Cruz Azul.

Liga MX 10/8 rule has negative effect on Mexico national team

ESPN FC's Tom Marshall previews the upcoming Liga MX campaign and discusses the new 10/8 rule.

Liga MX Talking Points: Which young Mexican star is ready for Europe?

Hernán Cristante debuts with a draw, taking on Toluca. Atlas playing with 10 men's at the 45 minute didn't manage to surpass the 1-1 result after leading the game.

If not Hirving "Chucky" Lozano -- who could sign with Manchester United after the Olympics -- then who? ESPN FC asked Tom Marshall, Nayib Moran and Cesar Hernandez to weigh in after Week 1 of Apertura action.

Tigres striker Andre-Pierre Gignac has pledged to see out the remainder of his contract with the Liga MX club.

Gignac, 30, left Marseille for Mexico last summer but France Football recently reported that he was keen a new challenge.

On his return from holidays, however, the France international said he was not going anywhere.

"They're only rumours," BeIN Sports quoted Gignac as saying. "I love Tigres and everyone knows it.

"I still have three years left on my contract -- I'm going to stay. I'm 30...

Hirving Lozano stars while Carlos Pena, Cesar Montes and Javier Aquino falter

Hernán Cristante debuts with a draw, taking on Toluca. Atlas playing with 10 men's at the 45 minute didn't manage to surpass the 1-1 result after leading the game.
