Five things to watch as the Liga MX Liguilla goes down to the wire

Luis Mendoza and Club America have all but booked their ticket to the Liguilla final following their first leg triumph in Monterrey.
Club America's Luis Mendoza shields the ball from Candido Ramirez of Monterrey during the first leg of their Liga MX Liguilla match.

Four squads are now left in the Liga MX Liguilla competition, but only two will emerge from the playoff battles this weekend.

Tigres and Toluca seem to have equal chances of making it into the finals after they held each other to a scoreless 0-0 draw during the first leg of the Liguilla semifinals. Toluca will now head to Monterrey and attempt to beat Tigres for the first time since March of this year.

As for Club America, the squad is in the driver's seat for the final. Unless Monterrey can pull...

Three Points: America in command after easy win vs. Monterrey

Luis Mendoza and Club America have all but booked their ticket to the Liguilla final following their first leg triumph in Monterrey.
Luis Mendoza scored a brace for Club America as they cruised to a 3-0 win in the first leg of their semifinal tie with Monterrey.

With a dominating 3-0 win over Monterrey, Club America rendered the second leg of this Liga MX semifinals to little more than a formality. It's very difficult to imagine how the Rayados could possibly climb out of the aggregate hole, especially since they seemed so befuddled about how to cope with the Aguilas in the first place.

Five things to watch ahead of the 2014 Liga MX Liguilla semifinals

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Alejandro Moreno break down the 2014 Liga MX semifinals.

Just two more matchdays separate four teams -- America, Toluca, Tigres and Monterrey -- from the finals of the 2014 Apertura Liguilla. On Thursday, the two lower seeds will host the higher seeds in the first of two legs. The second legs are Sunday, Dec. 7.

Considering the scores from the previous round, anything seems possible. The favorites of the tournament have seldom scored and the lowest ranked team, Monterrey, are the ones coming in with the most momentum.

Here are five things to watch for...

Pabon the key for Monterrey while Lobos is vital for Toluca

Dorlan Pabon set up Lucas Silva's winner when Monterrey beat Atlas 2-1 in September.

After 17 weeks of league play, the 2014 Apertura playoffs are set to begin. Thursday sees Monterrey meet Atlas and Chiapas take on Toluca -- here are five things to watch for:

1. Dorlan Pabon

Of Monterrey's 23 goals scored during the regular season, 11 came from Pabon. Along with his goals, the striker also collected five assists as well, meaning that only seven of his side's goals came about without his help. Thus, a good performance from the Colombian striker will be vital in their match against...
