Five matches to watch this weekend in Liga MX

Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti's Tigres are next up to face Ronaldinho's Queretaro. With only a four point difference between sixth and 13th place, the Liga MX Apertura appears to be destined for a dramatic finish. There are only three games left in the regular season -- except for Chivas and Monterrey -- and it will be truly intriguing to see how the Apertura table ends in late November. As for this weekend, there is an abundance of fantastic matches, but I have focused on a few of my favorites. Here are my five "must-watch games" for Week 15 in Liga MX. 1.

Weakened Dortmund still a threat to Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola was pleased with his side's progress to the last eight of the German Cup. Let's clear one thing up before getting started. Bayern Munich versus Borussia Dortmund; yes, it is a big game, but it is far from "Der Klassiker." At the risk of showing my age, please keep this term reserved for the original Bayern vs. Borussia Monchengladbach in the 1970s. Alternatively, even Hamburg.

Manchester City under pressure against Manchester United

ESPN FC's Craig Burley questions Manchester City's recent form following their latest slip-up in a 2-0 loss to Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup. How quickly things can change. Ten days ago, Manchester United were the listing ship heading for stormy waters. Having required a late Daley Blind goal to salvage a point against West Bromwich Albion, what possible hope did they have against Chelsea and then Manchester City? City had just annihilated Tottenham and, while they suffered the indignity of allowing a two-goal lead to slip in Russia that ended in a 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, they had West Ham and Newcastle as...
