Ascenso MX Semifinals: Top Seeds In Trouble Early

The Ascenso MX Clausura 2017 playoff semifinals were held last night and tonight, and it looks like Dorados will have to earn their way back to Liga MX in the Grand Championsip. In semifinal 1 last night, the Apertura Champions lost on the road 1-0 at Juarez FC, meaning Dorados will need to win by at least 2 goals in the second game to advance outright. In semifinal 2’s first game earlier tonight, top seed Mineros and their #1 defense couldn’t keep Lobos off the board, as the home team won 2-0 to take a big 2 goal advantage into the second game. If both leading teams pull the upsets then it will be #4 vs. #6 for another shot at Dorados with a trop to Liga MX next year on the line.
The second games will be Saturday & Sunday.
