For many teams, the last matchday will be very exciting, 5 clubs have kept their chances alive and are playing for their last opportunity to qualify for the Playoffs. While it is true that our Chivas have already secured their ticket, a series of results could place them in sixth place or drop them to tenth, hence the importance of defeating Cruz Azul on the last matchday.

You might be asking yourself, what does El Rebaño Sagrado have to do to be able to play the Reclasification match at the Akron? Well, here are the different scenarios that could occur before the start of the so-called Fiesta Grande of Liga MX.

IF CHIVAS BEATS CRUZ AZUL- Chivas will be assured of hosting the playoff match at home by reaching 25 points.- To finish sixth in the general table, they need Toluca and Puebla not to win.- If Toluca wins and Puebla draws or loses, El Rebaño would finish seventh.- If Toluca and Puebla win, El Chiverío will remain in eighth place.

IF CHIVAS DRAWS WITH CRUZ AZUL- Chivas would be at risk of conceding the Playoff match at home, as they would be left at 23 points.- If León wins, they would overtake Chivas in the standings with 24 points.

IF CHIVAS LOSES TO CRUZ AZUL- Chivas would have to play the playoff match away from home, as Cruz Azul would overtake them in the standings, as the Rebaño would have 22 points and La Maquina would have 24.- If León wins its match, it would also leapfrog Chiverío in the standings by reaching 24.- If Necaxa wins, they could overtake Chivas in points (22), but it is difficult to overtake them due to the goal difference; at the moment, the team from Guadalajara has +3 and La Maquina -6.
