Chivas Guadalajara - form analysis: gaining momentum

The "Striped Goats" suffered at the hands of their compatriots from America. First, they were eliminated in the round of 16 of the CONCACAF Champions League, with a devastating 0-3 defeat away. Then, they were the last team to take points from the Mexican Championship. After a goalless draw in mid-March, they managed to win 5 times, including four clean sheets. This allowed them to finish fifth in the table and avoid the preliminary round of the playoffs.

Toluca - form analysis: unable or unwilling to compete for the lead

The "Reds" tarnished their overall good season with a disappointing finish. They started with a 1-5 loss against America, partially redeemed by a similar scoreline victory against Atletico San Luis. However, in the final round, they lost 0-1 at home to Cruz Azul, with Tiago Volpi missing two penalties after the break. As a result, their opponent jumped to second place, ahead of them by 1 point (33 to 32). America remained the leader with 35 points.
