4. Cruz Azul is tied for fourth with Pachuca. They do lead with a better goal differential and less goals allowed.

5. Fifth on the list and tied for fourth this season is Pachuca. They have scored more goals than Cruz Azul but also have allowed more and have a worse goal differential.

7. Tigres UANL is next. They are coming off a 5-1 victory over Mazatlán. Their next match is Friday, March 29 verses Puebla.

8. In eighth sits Querétero. Tied with León in points, this team is coming off two straight wins.
