The eighth weekend of action in the Mexican Clausura tournament is here, and fans will surely get their money's worth with the upcoming fixtures.
League leaders América go back to Azteca Stadium after beating Monterrey, and they will put their defense to test against Necaxa, in what should be an interesting match to watch. The match between Toluca and the ailing Monterrey should also be closely monitored, and the clash where Tigres and Pumas will lock horns could end up giving us a new leader, if América is not able to earn all the points this Saturday evening.
Surprisingly, Matchday 8 in the Clausura 2020 tournament will begin with a whopping four games on Friday, something that might be surprising to most. Three more games will take place on Saturday, and the weekend will come to a close with a couple of duels on Sunday.
Here's what the eighth weekend of action in the Clausura 2020 has to offer.
América vs Necaxa
This clash between teams that used to belong to the same owner will serve one purpose: to find out if América can hold on to their lead at the top. Usually, the Eagles have struggled to beat Los Rayos, and given how things have happened between these teams in recent times, we can expect a close match. Even so, the outcome of this game could be talked about for quite a few days, especially if Miguel Herrera's men lose.

Tigres UANL vs Pumas UNAM
The team from the North side of Mexico has not been as impressive as usual, and their latest results in Liga MX and CONCACAF Champions League games back that claim. This team will face Pumas, a club that has surprised most experts for their good performances, and since they are playing a better brand of football than their rivals, it seems that we could be in for a good match between two would-be candidates to win the title.
