Liga Bancomer MX finals are on now between Club America and Tigres!


The only reason I am even mentioning this is because I was in Cancun a month ago and saw for myself all the local interest there in soccer and in Liga Bancomer MX.

Anyway, the finals are now on between Club America and Tigres, with Game One on tonight at Azteca Stadium and Game Two happening on Christmas Day. 

Might I add that a two-game series seems to work for Liga MX, but in MLS soccer you have this lousy one-game-for-the-Cup format where one team can dominate shots-on-goal for an entire game but still lose the Cup in a shootout after a 0-0 draw. Yes, I’m still bitter. Had that MLS series between Toronto FC and Seattle gone two games, it might have had a different outcome which might have been a bit more fair.

Also, an oddity of Mexico soccer is that they have a summer-fall season and then a winter-spring season, both of which have full playoffs. So this league always ends up having two champions in one year! Very strange.
