Toluca vs Santos Laguna – 1:00 PM – Univision / Univision Deportes
Toluca (8th) fell 1-2 to León last weekend to give them back-to-back losses. The Diablos Rojos failed to win in midweek as well, where they drew 2-2 with FC Juárez in the Copa MX. They’ll look to get back to winning ways in this one, and they’re traditionally hard to beat at home (last week’s result notwithstanding). Toluca has one of the better attacking records in the league and they’re average two gaols a game at home this season; they’ll look to keep that pace up in this one.
As for Santos Laguna (3rd), the Laguneros drew 1-1 with Cruz Azul last weekend to keep them winless in two but unbeaten in five. They avoided defeat in midweek as well, where they drew 0-0 with Pachuca in the Copa MX in midweek. Santos has a bit of a mixed record on the road so far, though, where they’re 1-1-1. But they’re just three points out of first place and they’ll be looking for a win in this one against a Toluca side that’s been on a bit of a slide as of late.
Toluca took the lead but couldn’t hold it as León came back for a 1-2 away win. The result is a second straight win for La Fiera, who have now won three of their last four, while the Diablos Rojos now have back-to-back losses.

Toluca vs Tijuana – 1:00 PM – Univision / Univision Deportes
Toluca (6th) beat Tigres UANL 1-2 last weekend to remain unbeaten in two. The Diablos Rojos are also unbeaten at home and they’ll look for another win as they return to the Estadio Nemesio Diez for this one. Toluca has been a consistent attacking threat in the Apertura, scoring at least once in every game, although they’ve been somewhat up-and-down defensively.
As for Tijuana (10th), the Xolos drew 1-1 with Cruz Azul last weekend to keep them winless in three. They did win in midweek, though, where they earned a 3-1 victory against FC Juárez in the Copa MX. The Xolos have only had one road game this season, which they lost back in Jornada 2. They’ll look for a better road result in this one, but Toluca is a tough team to play at home.

Lobos BUAP vs Atlas – 6:00 PM – Univision Deportes
Lobos BUAP (12th) fell 1-0 to Necaxa last weekend to remain winless on the road this season. The Licantropos’ lone win of the Apertura came at home, and they’ll look for a repeat performance as they return to the Estadio Universitario BUAP for this one. Lobos have one of the better defensive records to date, but they’ve also struggled for goals. They’ll look for their attack to come to life here. Lobos will also have the advantage of being better rested as they did not have a midweek game.
As for Atlas (17th), the Rojinegros fell 0-3 to Pumas UNAM last weekend to keep them winless this season. Atlas also has yet to score a goal in league play, although they did manage a 2-2 draw with Cruz Azul in the Copa MX in midweek.
