We are now essentially halfway through the 2017 Clausura, and are in the midst of an extraordinarily open year. With just nine games to play, literally any of the 18 teams in the league could end up in the liguilla, including bottom feeders León, who cannot be taken lightly. There were an astounding 31 goals scored this weekend, the most of any jornada this season. Relegation candidates performed well, Monterrey finally lost a game, and of course, there were golazos.

5. Unreal Comeback From Jaguares
Chivas seemed to be on their way to a comfortable victory over Jaguares on Sunday evening, and entered the tunnel at halftime with a 2-0 lead. They were in complete control of the game, but something must have happened in the Chiapas dressing room at halftime, because the Jaguares came out on fire, and in a 4 minute span turned a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead. Chivas were left stunned, and fell 4-3 when the final whistle blew. The victory continues the trend for Jaguares of winning against the big teams and losing against the poor ones. They now have wins over Chivas, Toluca, Tigres, and América, but still are outside the playoff zone.
