Current relegation standings:
|17||Jaguares de Chiapas||112||99||1.1313|
Puebla is on the verge of mathematically guaranteeing their safety; the Poblanos will definitively avoid relegation with a win this weekend or with a Veracruz loss or with a draw if Veracruz fails to win.
Just one point separates the other three teams in the relegation fight, however, and any of them – Morelia, Jaguares, and Veracruz – could end the weekend in last place in the Tabla de Cociente.
Morelia started the season there, and they remained last until Week 9, when they moved above Veracruz for the first time. Since then, it has been the Tiburones Rojos stuck in last place, but they’ve been closing the gap on Morelia and Jaguares, who have been sliding down the Tabla de Cociente since Week 8.
All four teams in the relegation fight are away this weekend; the matches to watch are:
Querétaro vs Jaguares de Chiapas
León vs Puebla
Necaxa vs Monarcas Morelia
Pumas UNAM vs Veracruz
