There are two outstanding statistics a neutral would immediately find when scouring the Liga MX 2018 Apertura table after seven rounds of matches of the season. And both involve the number zero.

The first is Cruz Azul's undefeated start to the season; the other is Atlas' inability to score even a single goal.

Pep Guardiola, Xavi Hernandez congratulate Rafa Marquez on 'spectacular career'

Former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola and midfielder Xavi Hernandez have lauded Mexican defender Rafa Marquez's career, after the 39-year-old confirmed his retirement in a thank-you letter on Saturday.

Marquez featured for Mexico at the World Cup, but had already retired for club side Atlas and made it known that Russia 2018 would be the end of his career.

Marquez wrote that he felt "very satisfied" with his 22-year career and highlighted that the happy times outweigh the more negative episodes.
