The women’s Apertura 2017 Week 9 make-up began tonight with 2 of the 8 games scheduled, results from those games (updated with full results):
Atlas 2, at Santos 1 (Atlas keeps faint playoff hopes alive but still way behind in tiebreakers)
at Queretaro 3, Necaxa 0
The remaining 6 games will be played tomorrow (10/18):
Pumas 3, at Toluca 1 (moved from Estadio Nemesio Diez to Metepec due to logistics issues)
at Pachuca 2, Veracruz 1
at Guadalajara 1, Tigres 0
at Morelia 1, Tijuana 0
at America 6, Cruz Azul 0
at Monterrey 4, Leon 0
Group 1-America has clinched a playoff spot with their win, while Pachuca now has a 5-point lead on Toluca for 2nd with just 2 games left thanks to Pumas beating Toluca. But despite the win, Pumas is now out of the playoff race. Tijuana & Morelia will battle for 5th, while Cruz Azul will finish 7th. Veracruz has 2 chances left to get that elusive first win.
Group 2-It. Is. On! Thanks to the Guadalajara win over Tigres and Monterrey’s win, we have a 3-way tie for 2 playoff spots! It it finishes this way Tigres will be in, if the playoffs started now Guadalajara would edge out Monterrey in goal differential by 1 for the tiebreaker. The rest are out. It’s all but going to be decided by Monterrey-Tigres next week. Guadalajara’s last 2 are Santos & Leon, Tigres finishes with Necaxa, Monterrey gets Santos last.
