Liga MX Apertura semi-final TV coverage plans by Univision


Univision has announced their TV coverage plans for the Liga MX Apertura semi-finals, which will be shown across its networks.

One game is already “in the can” after Tigres UANL defeated Club Leon 1-0 in the first leg on Wednesday night. Next up is the clash between Necaxa and Club America, which is scheduled to kick off this evening.

The top two teams will advance to the 2016-17 Liga MX Apertura final, which will be broadcast exclusively on Univision Networks exclusively.

The season all started in July, as the 18 teams of Liga MX began their battle to be the champion of North America’s top pro soccer league. In November, fans watched on Univision and UDN as the top eight teams advanced to the Liguilla, where top seeds Tijuana and Pachuca would fall. Now it’s down to the final four, as No. 3 Tigres UANL, No. 5 América, No. 7 Necaxa and No. 8 León head into the semifinal round.

The second leg of the two-game total-goals semifinal tournament opens on Saturday, December 3 with Tigres UANL versus León on UDN, and concludes on Sunday, December 4 as América and Necaxa renew their battle on Univision and UDN.

Univision and Univision Deportes coverage will feature play-by-play commentary as well as analysis by the networks all-star team of soccer experts, including Alejandro Berry who will host Fútbol Central at 8:00 p.m. ET/ 5:00 p.m. PT on UDN and Linea de Cuatro at 11:30 p.m. ET/ 8:30 p.m. PT.
