The Clausura 2024 season is headed for the stretch run and Puebla is the only team that has been eliminated from postseason consideration though Tijuana, FC Juárez and Atlas could see their playoff dreams end this weekend.

Sitting atop the table, América and Monterrey are 1 point away from clinching a playoff berth and Toluca could secure a spot with a win and a Pumas loss.

If the season were to end today, América, Monterrey, Toluca, Tigres, Cruz Azul and Pachuca would be in the quarterfinals, while Necaxa, Querétaro, León and Guadalajara would take part in the Play-in Tournament to claim the final two spots in the Liguilla.

The race for the Golden Boot will go down to the final weekend and a new king will be crowned after last season's scoring champ Harold Preciado was suspended for a doping violation.
