A total of 18 clubs started the 2021 Liga MX Apertura season with dreams of lifting the League Cup in December. But first, it takes getting to the post-season: To do this, teams must finish among the top 12 teams in the standings to advance to the post-season, or league, as it’s more commonly known.

What is at stake: There will be plenty of position maneuvering during the 17-game regular season. That’s because his placement in the top four in the standings automatically gives the team a place in the quarter-finals. Teams that finished from fifth to twelfth place have to survive the singles elimination game only to reach the quarter-finals. Difference #13 to #18 is out of contention.

Why ranking is important: The regular season standings also play a role during the quarter-finals and semi-final series, which are held over two legs. The team with the most goals leads in both matches. But if teams equalize by goals scored at the end of that second leg, the club that finished higher in the regular season standings will advance. This rule disappears in the final match, as teams will go to extra time and penalties, if necessary.

1. Superior goal difference
2. Score the most goals
3. Score the most goals on the road
4. Head-to-head matches between the tied teams
5. Best position in order of ‘outcome’ (Points per game compared to the previous six seasons)
6. fair play order (based on yellow and red cards received)
