This week's Liga MX good, bad, and ugly for this weekend looks at Tigres' ascension and Pachuca's relegation struggle.
Tijuana are feeling the pressure from a surging Club America, while Pachuca and Cruz Azul are going backwards in the latest Liga MX Power Rankings.
The obvious change in this week's Liga MX power rankings is the significant rise of Leones Negros. The newly-promoted squad from last year defeated America and Tigres in its last two league games.
In a mostly even match, Pumas made a statement by beating local rival Club America 1-0 in the opening leg of their playoff series.
