Heading into the final day of the Liga MX 2022 Clausura Tournament, several teams are directly involved in the fight to avoid being the team with the third and last place in the standings, who must pay a fine.

The three teams at risk of paying 33 million pesos are: Gallos de Querétaro (118 points), Diablos Rojos de Toluca (119 points) and Mazatlán FC (120 points).

One of the aforementioned teams will join FC Juarez and Xolos de Tijuana, which will have to pay fines of 80 million and 47 million pesos, respectively.

The economic penalties are applied to the three teams that accumulated the least amount of points during the 2021-22 Mexican soccer season.

On the last date of the Clausura Tournament, Querétaro will be at home to FC Juárez, Toluca will play at León FC’s stadium and Mazatlán FC will host Puebla.
