Five compelling Liga MX matchups

America showed up Leon last weekend, and this weekend will look to further establish themselves as the class of Liga MX.

The first set of matches of the Liga MX Apertura last weekend may have been a bit dull, but a quick glance at the upcoming schedule should potentially provide some hope for those futbol thrill-seekers.

There are plenty of juicy subplots to watch unfold and plenty of stars to watch shine, but it's hard to look past the exciting set of games this weekend.

Here are five games to watch during the second matchday of the Liga MX:

Santos vs. Cruz Azul

Both squads still have something left to prove. Santos were able to beat Veracruz 1-0 last weekend, but there is still a bit of doubt over their attack after the departure of Oribe Peralta. Cruz Azul, on the other hand, were abysmal against Pachuca during their loss. La Maquina weren't even able to break Los Tuzos when they were brought down to nine players.

Santos can use this as great opportunity to showcase their desire to be a dominant squad, while Cruz Azul are hoping to regain some composure and respect.

America vs. Xolos

This game has the potential to be a complete blowout that would favor America. Yet America weren't exactly the best at home last season, and Tijuana, like Cruz Azul, have plenty to prove after their embarrassing home loss.

- Herrero resigns as Chivas president
- Hernandez: Mexicans performing abroad

With the inclusion of Oribe Peralta and their recent win over Leon, America are pressing to not just be a Liguilla team, but the best team in the Liga MX.

Xolos are on the brink of a terrible season and will hope to reassure fans once Javier Gandolfi and Hernan Pellerano return to stabilize the defense.

Tigres vs. Leon

Leon need to bounce back. They had plenty of good moments against America but it wasn't enough to secure three points. Players such as Jose Juan Vazquez, Carlos Pena and Rafael Marquez will likely be in full form after having to immediately transition back to the Liga MX from the World Cup.

As for Tigres, the squad finished an underwhelming match against Atlas last weekend and will need to once again show that their immense amount of talent on the roster is worthy of much more than just a tie.

Pumas vs. Chivas

Pumas are riding a bit of a high after their 3-1 win against Queretaro, and Chivas are still in shambles after their embarrassing draw at home. Chivas may have embarrassed themselves, but with their squad, they are still capable of providing an upset or two. Pumas are somewhat of a forgotten "top team" and would love to find a second win in a row, especially against Guadalajara.

Leones Negros vs. Queretaro

"Prove" seems to be the word of the Apertura thus far, but it is once again relevant when discussing the Leones Negros. The Guadalajara side were awful against Monterrey and will have an opportunity for restitution in their first home game of the Liga MX this season.

Queretaro were one of the surprises of the opening weekend, despite their loss, and their attack against Pumas was still very impressive considering the score. With the power that they have going forward, Los Gallos Blancos have every chance to find a way into the playoffs. However, the first step in that direction requires points in matches such as the one against Leones Negros.
