The 2022-2023 Liga MX season kicks off with the 2022 Apertura Tournament with defending champions Atlas looking for another consecutive title. But they are not the only ones hungry to win, other big teams like Tigres UANL, Club America and Pachuca are also eager to win this year.

But to get to the playoffs, also known as 'La Liguilla', the teams must have the best players to win the games, especially to have the best possible offensive attack since Liga MX is considered one of the best leagues in the American continent in terms of average goals per game.

What Atlas did last season is something unusual within Liga MX, winning the two phases of the Mexican league (known as Bicampeonato, Spanish word for two-time championship), before them another team that won both stages in a row was Club Leon (2013 Apertura and 2014 Clausura).
