Week 7 of the Liga MX Apertura 2012 has several interesting matches. My pick for Friday is Morelia vs Pumas, pitting an undefeated Morelia against a Pumas with an interim coach. Saturday’s pick is Santos vs Tigres, two Northern teams that have faced each other in key matches in the previous seasons. Sunday’s pick has to be Toluca vs America, the #1 team against an America that had a week filled with locker room tensions.
