Liga MX review: Liga MX needs to resolve its 'Veracruz problem' before things get even worse

Veracruz have not won a single game all season and haven't won in Liga MX since August!

Veracruz problem dragging down Liga MX

When Monterrey hosts local rivals Tigres on Wednesday in the impressive Estadio BBVA Bancomer for the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League final, you'd be stretched to find a more positive advertisement for the strength of Liga MX. There'll be over 50,000 people in attendance, a quality of play and players that are as good as you will find outside the top European leagues and passionate fan bases fueling the spectacle.

But as exciting as the Clasico...

Relegated Veracruz to pay way back into Mexico's top flight - manager

As MLS and Liga MX mull a new tournament like the SuperLiga of the mid-2000s, Taylor Twellman says the time is right for a new competition.
MLS commissioner Don Garber and Liga MX president Enrique Bonilla speak of their hopes of bringing unity to the two leagues as they announce the Campeones Cup.

Veracruz's 2-0 loss to Liga MX leader Leon on Sunday condemned the team to relegation and brought tears to the eyes of young goalkeeper Sebastian Jurado on the final whistle.

But Los Tiburones Rojos are likely to remain in Mexico's top division, as long as the club pays 120 million Mexican pesos (just over $6 million) to keep its place in a league looking to expand from 18 to 19 teams for next season.

"[Club owner] Fidel [Kuri] has the money to pay, but the idea was to save the team from relegation...

Liga MX W2W4: Chivas vs. Monterrey, Leon's Angel Mena and finally hope for Veracruz

Despite its current fourth-place position, Chivas have been very much a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde club this season in Liga MX.
Despite its current fourth-place position, Chivas have been very much a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde club so far this season in Liga MX.

It's almost time for Week 9 of the 2019 Clausura! Before Liga MX returns with another set of highly anticipated matches, here are three things to watch out for:

Which Chivas will show up vs. Monterrey?

What do we make of Chivas at the halfway point of the regular season?

There are definite signs of progress -- evidenced by their current place in the top four and the 3-0 thrashing of Atlas in the Clasico Tapatio this month -- but there's still something missing. Every time it looks like Los Rojiblancos...

Liga MX W2W4: Cruz Azul under pressure vs. Veracruz, Vucetich returns to Queretaro

Cruz Azul are staggering in 2019 and have declined since they reached the Apertura final. A game vs. Veracruz should be a great tonic for what ails them.

Round eight of the 2019 Clausura is almost upon us with one new face on the manager's bench and other head coaches under fire. Here are three things to watch out for this weekend:

Can Veracruz provide a reprieve for struggling Cruz Azul?

When things are looking bad, a game against Veracruz is about as good as it gets for a Liga MX side. And for Cruz Azul, things have gradually declined since that final Apertura loss in December to Mexico City rival Club America.

There are different ways to measure...

Possum wins 'man of the match' award in Liga MX as Puebla defeat Veracruz

Puebla defeated Veracruz 1-0 on Friday in Liga MX in an important win for La Franja, but the man of the match award wasn't given to any of the actual players.

Instead, a limping "tlacuache" -- a possum -- that entered the pitch in the first half to the bemusement of the public and those watching on TV was the centre of attention, winning the award according to one TV station.

Veracruz is a side staring relegation in the face and with Puebla 1-0 up, the away team took the opportunity to make fun...
