We've reached the stage of the season where we are finally getting a clearer picture of who will be fighting for a playoff spot and that means several key ties to look forward to.

Week 13's Saturday batch of matches get started with Club America, who go into their game against Xolos de Tijuana on the back of clinching a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League final. Before, Las Aguilas had the talent but lacked the consistency. Now Ignacio Ambriz's side are enjoying an excellent few weeks, and are unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions.

But Xolos manager Miguel "Piojo" Herrera will make his return to his former club America as his side chase one of eight playoff spots available. Herrera will love the idea of beating his former side and he should know a thing or two about winning at the Estadio Azteca.

Meanwhile, Club America's rival in the CONCACAF Champions League final, Tigres, will be on the road as they take on third-placed Pachuca. The champions reserved one of their worst performances of the season for last week when they squandered a two-goal lead against struggling Atlas to settle for a 2-2 draw.

Surprisingly, Tigres sit seventh in the league table after 12 games played, and a good result at Pachuca will do well to keep them in a playoff spot. Pachuca, however, are a tough side to beat at home. At the Estadio Hidalgo, the Tuzos have not lost since November 14 and they should have enough to trouble the champions in home soil.

Finally, the week will end with Puebla playing hosts to Chivas at the remodeled Estadio Cuauhtemoc. Chivas look like a side full of ideas at the moment and will be confident following a 4-0 victory over Pumas UNAM last weekend.

A month on and the Rebaño Sagrado have bounced back from Clasico Nacional defeat with two straight wins against tough opposition.With only a point separating Chivas from one of the final playoff spots, Matias Almeyda's side will probably not have too many chances remaining to move into a top eight position.

It is also now or never for La Franja. Puebla have not won in their last five league games and are looking like a side to be opposed. But three of their last five league games are at home, and If they plan on reaching their second consecutive Liguilla, then earning points is the only option for Pablo Marini's side.

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