Matchday 15 and the penultimate of the Torneo Apertura of the Liga MX will have the Clásico Nacional between América and Chivas as a great attraction, in addition to the fact that many classifieds will begin to be defined.
América, the great leader of the tournament, will host Chivas, who suffered a very heavy defeat and are looking to add at least 1 point to ensure their place in the playoffs.
Monterrey, which is second, will have the visit of Atlas, already eliminated, and who seeks to finish its two-time championship in the best way.
Pachuca, who needs to win to confirm their qualification for the quarterfinals, will visit an Atlético San Luis that is beginning to see its passage to the next round in danger.
Finally, Tigres, who achieved a great victory last Tuesday, will now play against Puebla, which is on the tightrope.

América wants to close a great first part of the tournament and already has 9 wins in a row, being indisputably the best team in the league and its passage to the quarterfinals is more than certain, however, in the derby, they will always want to defeat Chivas.
Guadalajara was coming along very well, with 7 undefeated games and 5 wins in that interval, being the best defense (9), but they fell spectacularly at home against Tigres (1-4) on Tuesday and their dream of getting into the top four vanished. Although it is very difficult for them to be eliminated from the playoff, a point confirms it mathematically.
América vs. Guadalajara Betting Pick: América

Monterrey is still fighting for its place in the quarterfinals and only needs one win to do it early. They come into this game with 4 undefeated games, adding 10 out of 12 points and improving the game plan a bit.
Atlas was a disappointment. They are the current two-time champions of the Mexican league, but they have only been able to win 2 games in this tournament. They have 10 points in penultimate place and are already eliminated, but they want to say goodbye to their double crown in the best way.
Monterrey vs. Atlas Betting Pick: Monterrey
Liga MX Matchday 15: Atlético San Luis vs. Pachuca

Atlético San Luis is in danger. Although they beat Atlas (1-3) and are in eighth place, their last two games are against Pachuca and Tigres, two teams that are in the top 4 and are trying to secure their direct passage to the quarterfinals. The Rojiblanco team, with 18 points and 1 game more than most, is easy prey for the other rivals looking to enter the playoffs.
Pachuca is, along with America, the best team in the tournament. 6 games undefeated and 5 wins in that time is not everything, as this weekend they crushed Tijuana 6-1, showing that they have a lot of power in attack. Precisely their striker, Nicolás Ibáñez, is the tournament’s top scorer with 10 goals.
Atlético San Luis vs. Pachuca Betting Pick: Pachuca
Liga MX Matchday 15: Puebla vs. Tigres

Puebla is on the tightrope and needs to win to stay alive and depend on itself on the last day of the Liga MX. La Franja has not won since its second game, on July 8, since it later achieved 10 draws and 2 losses, one of them last weekend against Guadalajara (1-0). Nicolás Larcamón’s men are the ones with the most equalities and the fewest falls (2), but they are in 11th place and have to beat, not only Tigres but also América in the last game, to obtain their passage to the playoffs.
Tigres suffered an incredible defeat at home against León (0-1) and recovered this Tuesday by crushing Chivas in Guadalajara 1-4 to roar and show that it is alive and fighting for the title. They climbed to fourth place but they are battling with Santos and Pachuca, and only two of them three will keep those places.
Puebla vs. Tigres Betting Pick: Tigres
