Liga MX resumes this weekend after the international break.
The Liga MX’s 2014 Apertura tournament is nearing its conclusion, meaning there are lots of intriguing fixtures at both ends of the table.

Here are our three ‘must watch’ games:
Club America vs Monterrey
This game sees the league leaders America welcome the side in third, Monterrey. America have 26 points from 12 games, while Monterrey are 3 points behind with a game in hand. America’s have a +10 goal difference compared with Monterrey’s +8, so a win for Monterrey would send them top. Monterrey will be praying Chilean talisman Humberto Suazo is fit enough to start after missing more than a month through injury.
Atlas vs Toluca
A fortunate symmetry means on the same weekend that first play third, second-placed Atlas also face fourth-placed Toluca. Atlas are two points behind America and could go top depending on the other result. Toluca are four behind America and two behind Atlas. Most onlookers think the post-season Apertura champions will come from one of these four teams.
Tigres UANL vs Cruz Azul
Tigres are currently fifth and are tied with Toluca as being the most in-form side in division. They are hoping to return to the post-season after failing to qualify in the 2014 Clausura, and with a five point buffer over ninth-placed Queretaro it’s looking positive. Cruz Azul won the regular season in the Clausura but have struggled for form in the Apertura and sit eighth, only one point better off than Queretaro. Tigres ended Cruz Azul’s nine-game winning streak in the last campaign and will hope to inflict more damage on their opponents this time.
