Liga MX Week 7, 2016 Clausura, TV schedule and live stream

Week 7 officially kicks off on Friday with plenty of games to look forward to throughout the weekend. After losing to Xolos de Tijuana, Tigres will look to bounce back against Queretaro in the opening match of the week.

Tigres' 2-1 loss at home to Miguel Herrera's side was only the champions' second of the season and they look far more up to the fight against an inconsistent Gallos Blancos team.

Queretaro seemed to have found some form after beating Veracruz 2-1, but after another defeat away from home, Victor Manuel Vucetich's side sit 13th in the table. It's hard not to see Tigres keeping possession on this one, and Queretaro will have to take their chances if they want to give the champions another defeat.

The biggest tie of the weekend, though, is at the Estadio Azteca, where Club America take on Cruz Azul. Last weekend's 2-1 win at home to will have boosted Cruz Azul's confidence and the Cementeros come into this Clasico Joven in a good moment.

On paper, Cruz Azul manager Tomas Boy, as he usually does, will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on his defense. In every match this season, the Cementeros have led at one point in the match. Another persistent defensive display like last weekend's could mean all three points at the Azteca if they manage to get through Moises Muñoz.

But Club America seemed to have come through their rough patch at home and that could mean bad news for Cruz Azul. While it's not easy to win against an organized side like Tomas Boy's, Las Aguilas have plenty of talent and pace on the attack.

These two teams have plenty of history, and at the end of the day, both know it is all about getting the W.

One team not getting wins is Chivas. The Guadalajara outfit is still winless after six games and they are paired up against Chiapas on Saturday.

Chivas owner Jorge Vergara denounced that they were looking at Jorge Sampaoli as a possible replacement for Matias Almeyda, as pressure mounts on the Argentine manager.

If Chivas are to get back into things, they have to win at Chiapas. A defeat or draw would drop Matias Almeyda further back, and although the team had a win against Leones Negros in the Copa MX during the midweek, Chivas need a victory here.

Meanwhile, Chiapas enjoyed a week of rest after their game was postponed due to the Pope's visit. Ricardo La Volpe's men have lost four of their last five games and they will be as eager to get the three points here.

Below, you can find the full list of games and their time.
