2019 Liga MX Apertura Liguilla semifinals: Everything you need to know

The reigning champion, last season's runner-up and the 2019 Apertura regular-season winner all went out in the quarterfinals of the Liga MX playoffs in a series of matches that were up there with the best the league has seen this decade.

The top four seeds -- Santos Laguna, Leon, Tigres and Queretaro -- are no longer around, meaning the semifinal series have two clear favorites: Club America and Monterrey. However, the way this liguilla has gone so far, the tag of favorite hasn't been something...

Guadalajara Chivas keeper Antonio Rodriguez scored straight from a drop kick to seal a 3-1 win over Veracruz.

MEXICO CITY -- French striker Andre-Pierre Gignac's penalty completed an unlikely 2-1 comeback victory for Tigres against Club America in Estadio Azteca in the quarterfinal first leg of the 2019 Apertura Liga MX playoffs on Thursday.

Tigres only had a total of two shots on goal over the 90 minutes, but the reigning Liga MX champions netted through a Gignac penalty and Guido Pizarro header from a corner in the second half.

Club America had looked the better side by far in the first 45 minutes and...

Carlos Vela does it again, and LAFC lead 2-0 vs. LA Galaxy.
