Defending champions taking on the 1st placed 

Despite scoring placed in the top 4 on the regular, it was an issue for Cruz Azul to finally secure the title. After a 20+ year drought, The Machine managed to bring home the league silverware. It will be a great feat and also mean a lot to the supporters if the club manages to defend its title and go for a back-to-back win.  

Toluca on the other hand has lacked any trophies in quite a while. The side's last accomplishment was winning a league title in 2010. However, their most recent results were 4 rankings in the bottom half of the table in a row. The team seems to have bounced back nicely and is the current league leader, yet to lose any points. Keeping this up against Cruz Azul would be a struggle though.
