Who wins the Torneo Apertura 2017?

Odd unit: EU | UK | US

On July, the mexican league will start his first tournament of the season with the Torneo Apertura. After 17 matches, 8 teams will qualify for the playoffs, and only one team will prevail after the eliminatory matches.

Guadalajara was the last champion of the tournament, winning the final matches against Tigres (2-1 and 2-2). After ten years without lifting a trophy, the team managed by Matías Almeyda won the league with a solid performance. The argentinean manager is the main architect of this moment and he may be leaving the team this season for new ventures over Europe. If this happens, las chivas will have a hard time to replace him. Improving the squad isn’t also easy, as the team only signs Mexican players.

Tigres UANL is always a candidate for the title. They have the best squad in the country, with a vast quantity of quality players in all the zones. The team managed by Ricardo “Tuca” Ferretti is an offensive one, with a lot of scoring chances provided by the French star André-Pierre Gignac, the national team forwards Jürgen Damm and Javier Aquino, the argentinean Ismael Sosa and the chilenean Eduardo Vargas.

Toluca and Tijuana were the other semifinalists last season. Although they’re already established teams, they surprised everybody with good performances, especially in the playoffs. Toluca has an interesting blend with young promises and experienced players and is interesting to see what they’ll develop over the season. Tijuana, on the others side, is a team more oriented at building their squad with good foreigner players. Their new manager, Eduardo Coudet, is an interesting one who surprised everyone at his spell at Rosario Central and worth keeping an eye on him. Santos Laguna is the other team who can surprise us after their last season if they don’t dismantle the current team they have.

Club América, the giant of México, had a bad tournament last season, not reaching the final stages by goal difference. They’re always expected to be the main contenders for the tournament, and the players they have ask for no less. Managed by the historical coach Ricardo La Volpe, and with players such as the always reliable Oribe Peralta, the argentinean striker Silvio Romero, Darwin Quintero and the young paraguayan promise Cecilio Domínguez the stakes are always high if they reach what they seems to be capable of.

Finally, teams as Monterrey and Pachuca could be the other contendants, as they usually reach playoffs. Monterrey under the management of Antonio Mohamed displayed some good performances. However they failed in the quarter finals against Tigres. A revamp of the squad is on the talks, and if they keep some key players such as Dorlan Pabón, Carlos Sánchez and Edwin Cardona, they can aim for the title. Pachuca, on the other side, will need some improvements to their short squad if they want to have a chance, especially in the offensive line. Also, they’ll have to keep the young promise Hirving Lozano, who was a crucial player last season.
