Liga MX Week 5, 2016 Clausura, TV schedule and live stream

Week 5 officially kicks off on Friday with a host of exciting games throughout the weekend. Santos Laguna's impressive rise this season has taken the league by surprise, and on Saturday, they play Club America in what promises to be the must-watch game of the week.

America's 3-0 victory over woeful Dorados was significant, especially in terms of timing. Ignacio Ambriz seems to be in the hot-seat every two weeks and this will be his chance to impress in front of a tough Santos team. In the Estadio Azteca, though, America have a rough time, winning only once in their last six games.

Santos are in top form after losing their opening game of the season. They have pace and talent in a few areas and this could easily be another memorable away day at the Azteca.

One manager who is feeling the pressure is Matias Almeyda at Chivas. If Chivas are to get back into the discussion they have to win against Toluca. A defeat and three draws to start the season has dropped several of Almeyda's admirers back, and although they did win in the Copa MX midweek, the Rebaño Sagrado need to start hitting the accelerator.

Finally, undefeated Pachuca continue to impress and they will be out to beat Pumas UNAM at Ciudad Universitaria on Sunday. On current form, not to mention with the young individual talent of players like Hirving Lozano and Erick Gutierrez, there is no surprise as to why this team is top of the league. Diego Alonso's side look like a reinvigorated side after narrowly missing out on the playoffs last season, and while Ciudad Universitaria is always a tough venue, the Tuzos will go to the capital full of confidence.

Meanwhile, Pumas UNAM have been inconsistent. They are a side with tons of pace on the counterattack but their problem is conceding first and having to play catch-up. After four weeks, they will surely improve on that, and like they showed last season, they aren't a side to be underestimated.

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