The Liguilla quarterfinals are over and now there are only four Liga MX teams left in the playoffs.
Here is a breakdown of who made it into the semifinals:
After going down 1-0 to Morelia in the first leg, Xolos came roaring back in the return leg, topping Morelia 2-0. Now Tijuana are into the semifinals, though they will face Tigres, which is no easy task.

The quarterfinals weren’t even close as Tigres absolutely walloped Monterrey over both legs, finishing with a 6-1 aggregate win. Tigres were in such strong position, they didn’t really even need André-Pierre Gignac’s free kick wonder in the second leg, but it was sure fun to watch anyway. No team is in better form right now than Tigres.

Chivas are chasing their first title in more than a decade after dispatching Atlas in the quarterfinals on tiebreakers. Atlas won the first match 1-0 while Chivas won the return leg 1-0, but Liga MX playoff rules give the tiebreaker to the higher seeded team.
With two lopsided score lines, Toluca just barely got the edge on Santos Laguna to advance on a 5-4 aggregate score. Toluca dominated the first leg, 4-1, but Santos nearly waged a comeback, falling just short at 3-1. Now Toluca will face Chivas in the semifinals.
