On the other hand, we have another iconic team in Mexican soccer, Toluca. Although they are in a privileged spot within the playoffs for the next Liguilla, they have been playing very irregularly in their last matches, in which they have won only 1 game out of the last 6. However, they still have a strong chance to qualify for the next phase without having to enter the playoffs. Since they are very few points from third and fourth place on the table, they could equal the score if they start a positive streak in their next matches.
In their last game, Toluca faced Leon for Matchday 13 where they were defeated 2-1 after a very good comeback by Leon. Toluca currently occupies the 7th place on the leaderboard with 5 wins, 4 draws, and 4 losses.
