Chivas might be on track to give Toronto FC a fight and qualify for their first FIFA Club World Cup, but in the Liga MX El Rebaño Sagrado is dangerously close to not qualifying for the playoffs. Nine points in the last three matches is the only way Chivas can possibly sneak into the top eight, and it all starts in Tijuana. Will the Goats be in contention for two titles this semester, or will they fall out of the liguilla race and turn their focus to the CCL?

Player to Watch: If Matias Almeyda continues to put young players in the league and rest the starters, look for another great game from Oscar Macias. Despite a loss against Veracruz last week, Macias was one of the most efficient players on the field. The 19-year-old teenager had a 92 percent pass accuracy, created one big chance, won five of his seven duels and had five crosses to equal a 7.1 match rating from SofaScore.

Before being eliminated by Chivas in the semifinals of the CCL, the New York Red Bulls succeeded in sending Tijuana back home from the competition. Now, Xolos find themselves in the bottom half of the playoff hunt fighting for a spot along with six other squads. This time of year will be make it or break it time for Tijuana as they try to make the playoffs for the first time since the Miguel Herrera days.

Player to Watch: Since returning from injury earlier this month, Gustavo Bou has yet to score a goal. The Argentine, nicknamed “The Panther”, was Tijuana’s top scorer last season and will want to continue netting them for the club in the last few critical matches of the Clausura. Look for him to step his offensive game up in the last few weeks and heading into the playoffs.
