It all comes down to this. One match stands in the way of Chivas Guadalajara or Tigres UANL being named the Liga MX champion of the Clausura. After a 2-2 tie in the first leg, now the winner will be decided in the second leg.
Unlike the previous round of the Liguilla, there are no automatic tiebreakers in the final leg. If the aggregate is still level after the match ends, it will go into extra time and then penalty kicks.
Tigres are in back-to-back Liga MX finals after scoring a whopping 10 goals in the Liguilla playoffs coming into the final.
Coming into the second leg, Tigres remains the favorite (despite the tied score) because they have dominated the Liguilla. Momentum shifted their way in the first leg as they came back from a 2-0 deficit to equalize.
Though they are on the road for the return leg, they've been the obvious best team in the playoffs and their form is tough to bet against.

It'a been a tougher road for Chivas, who only eked their way into the final on tiebreakers and scored just three goals leading up to the final.
They scored twice early in the first leg and looked well on their way to a 2-0 win, until five minutes from full time when Tigres scored twice.
It helps that Chivas will be at home in front of their own fans, and given that they haven't had a title in a decade, they really want this badly.
