The Liguilla duels could include matches between América and Chivas in the Clásico Nacional, but there is also the possibility of a Clásico Regio between Tigres and Monterrey, or even a Clásico Joven between América and Cruz Azul and a Clásico Tapatío between Atlas and Chivas.
What would the results have to be like for this to happen?
Combinations for the Clásico Nacional - América vs Chivas
The Clásico Nacional is the most attractive match that could be seen in the quarterfinals, in the event that Puebla loses its playoff and Chivas advances to the next phase, causing a clash between the Rojiblancos and América, two of the most in-form teams of the Clausura 2022.
Combinations for the Clásico Tapatío - Atlas vs Chivas
In another case, up to two Clasicos could be presented in the quarterfinals of the Clausura 2022. This would occur if Puebla, Chivas, and Monterrey advance, making a Clasico Regio and Clasico Tapatio possible.
For the Clasico Tapatio, Puebla would need to qualify and Chivas would also need to qualify so that the sixth-place team would face the third-place team on the table. Leaving a Clasico Joven, between Cruz Azul and America, is out of the question.
Combinations for the Clásico Regio - Tigres vs Monterrey
A clash between Chivas and Atlas in the quarterfinals opens the key for the Clasico Regio, as Monterrey, should they win their playoff, would qualify in seventh place and meet Tigres, who finished second in the table.
Combinations for the Clasico Joven - America vs. Cruz Azul
Meanwhile, there is also a combination that would allow a Clasico Joven in the quarterfinals. Cruz Azul needs to win its playoff and hope that Chivas, Puebla, and Monterrey lose their play-offs to meet América in the next phase.
Celestes and Azulcremas faced each other at the end of the regular phase with a scoreless draw, which gave América a direct pass to the playoffs.
