After 3 matches, Leon is tied in points for 1st place in the regular standings with 7 points; Pachuca is in 4th place with 6 points.
The ‘tuzos’ have been one of the better teams at the beginning of this tournament. They won their first 2 matches after defeating Toluca and Tigres. Although Pachuca lost in their past game against Xolos of Tijuana, the team coached by Gabriel Caballero has demonstrated his team has a good defense, while their offense could still improve. How much the offense improves will depend greatly on how long it takes Duvier Riascos to adapt to his new team. Once the talented forward is comfortable, Pachuca will be balanced offensively and defensively.
The ‘panzas verdes’ are back; at least in their recent performances. After 3 weeks, the team coached by Gustavo Matosas has defeated Atlante and Atlas, while they tied America during the week. Leon has not played teams in great form, however, they are already 9 points away from tying their total from last season.

Against Pachuca they will have a very tough opponent, therefore it will serve as a parameter to understand in what level in the team is at.
