MEXICO -- After nine games, Cruz Azul's impressive unbeaten streak ended in the Apertura 2018, falling victim to one of the most frustrating and entertaining teams in the tournament: Necaxa.

Returning from international duty, the eight-time Liga MX champions are still in the driver's seat as the season moves into the second half, however, as they retain a three-point lead over Club America, Pumas and Santos Laguna -- all of whom won last weekend.

Here are the Power Rankings after Week 9.

Liga MX W2W4: Julio Furch stepping up for Santos Laguna; Tigres must keep focus

Liga MX action returns to action following the international break and there are plenty of storylines as the 2018 Apertura begins the second half of the season. Here is what we'll be watching: 

Can Necaxa upset undefeated Cruz Azul?

Necaxa was one of the talking points of the first few weeks of the season, mainly due to Marcelo Michel Leano's presence on the bench. The 31-year-old -- a friend of Argentina legend Cesar Luis Menotti -- had his team playing attacking football, was shaking journalists'...

MEXICO CITY -- As Liga MX breaks for the first FIFA international dates of the budding season, we can mark an informal midpoint to the season with eight games down and nine to go in the Apertura 2018 campaign. 

While one team sits head and shoulders above the rest in Cruz Azul, another (Atlas) has still not won a game and just fired its manager after an offensive output of one goal in the first eight matches. Even then, all 18 teams still possess a mathematical chance to make the playoffs --...

Cruz Azul are at full steam ahead; Atlas finally breaks goal drought

The international break brings a temporary halt to proceedings in Liga MX, but it's been an exciting weekend in Mexico's top division. Here are ten talking points from round eight of games in the 2018 Apertura:

1. Cruz Azul, Alvarado continue to impress

The pitch inside the Estadio Azteca may be in an embarrassing state, but Cruz Azul's fortunes continue to soar.

La Maquina overcame Veracruz 4-1 in the famous stadium on Saturday in what turned out to be a comfortable win over spirited opposition.
