With three weeks to go in the Apertura section of the Liga MX, Club León travel to face Club Puebla at the Estadio Cuauhtémoc hoping to win six games in a row and take a step closer to the title. They just need four points from their last three games to win the Apertura title. A win guarantees the title if Pumas do not win.
