The 2014 Liga MX Apertura is entering the final weekend of the regular season, with just nine games left to decide the final outcome of the league table.

Only five spots in the playoffs have been claimed, leaving the last three spots for seven teams to fight over this weekend.

With so much at stake for so many clubs, there will likely be a massive amount of futbol drama in the last round of the regular season.

Considering what is at hand, here are my five must-watch games for Week 17 of the...

Chivas searching to end gloomy Apertura with a rare win

Chivas are winless in Chepo de la Torre's first six games since returning as head coach.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Chivas close out the 2014 Apetura season with a trip to Morelia on Friday for a game pitting the bottom two teams in the Liga MX table.

Two wins from 16 games so far for Chivas this season tells its own story, but if there is one positive, it is that Morelia's woeful goal difference means Guadalajara won't finish the Apertura in last position, even with a loss.

Chivas, who only fields Mexican players, is on a run of 11 games in all competitions without a win. Three points...

With the latest international break coming to a close and the frenzy of the club season about to resume, we asked some of our writers to chronicle what they love, both past and present, about the leagues they follow. It's #WhyWeWatchFootball. Here's Tom Marshall on how he got into Liga MX.

It's a 24/7 telenovela

"Never a dull moment" is a cliche but it holds true to Liga MX. Some stories over recent weeks include Pachuca's vice-president Andres Fassi cornering a referee and shouting that he would...

Toothless Chivas Guadalajara slide further into relegation trouble

Fernando Arce, right, made the unfortunate error that cost Chivas the game.

It'd be a mistake to pin Chivas' 1-0 defeat on the road to Monterrey solely on the shoulders of Fernando Arce.

The midfielder made a catastrophic pass in midfield that allowed Humberto Suazo to swoop in and square the ball to Dorlan Pabon, who netted the winner for Los Rayados in the 59th minute. It was a horrendous error at odds with a player who has built a successful career for club and country on consistency.

Chepo looking for first win back at Chivas against Monterrey

Chepo de la Torre has solidified Chivas' defense, but scoring goals remains a problem for the relegation-threatened Guadalajara side.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Chivas coach Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre is yet to win a match since his return to the club on October 7th as they head into Saturday's game on the road to Monterrey, but he is upbeat on the improvement he has seen from his side.

"The group is giving everything to get out of the place we are in," said De la Torre this week, referencing the relegation struggle. "We've seen an important improvement."

De la Torre has tightened up the side over the last two games -- both...
