The league makes unhappy reading for the two Monterrey clubs. Tigres were last season’s runners up but now lie 14th after losing two of their first three games, while their cross city rivals Rayados – semi finalists in 2014, are down in 16th.
Club America, the reigning champions, are also enduring a miserable 2015 thus far. They’ve picked up four points from three games, but were held at home by minnows Puebla last weekend in a dour 0-0 draw.
And the leaders? Veracruz – a side that are still involved in a relegation scrap due to a convoluted system that sees the demoted side decided by a rolling three-year average of points.
The top eight will qualify for the post-season in May.
