Liga MX Week 5 Preview 8/18-20


8pm-Morelia vs Pachuca (Univision Deportes)

Prediction- 1-0 Pachuca, Morelia is not good and Pachuca’s defense will slow them down and Pachuca scores 1 goal in a dull affair

10pm-Tijuana vs Santos (Univision Deportes)

Prediction- 1-1, neither team is good, Tijauna is finally able to get 1 point at home


6pm- Cruz Azul vs Atlas (Univision Deportes)

Predicition- 2-1 Atlas, Atlas has been impressive and I think they take all the points against the Blue Cross

6pm-BUAP vs America (no tv)

Prediction- 1-0 America

8pm-Tigres vs Pumas (Univision)

Prediction- 1-1, Pumas’ defense will slow down the Tigres attack and sneak out with 1 point each, Tigres has not been impressive after winning 5-1 over Puebla week 1, now they play a good defensive team and will have a tough time getting going

8pm-Veracruz vs Queretaro (Univision Deportes at 1am)

Prediction- 1-0 Queretaro

806pm-Leon vs Monterrey (ESPN Deportes and Galavision)

Prediction- 3-1 Monterrey, Leon’s defense stinks and Monterrey has a good attack

1006pm-Chivas vs Puebla (Univision)

Prediction- 2-0 Chivas, Puebla is awful and a perfect recipe to get Chivas on track


1pm-Toluca vs Necaxa (Univision)

Prediction- 2-0 Toluca, very good home team that wont lose to Necaxa
