If there is something that is never missing in a day of the Women’s MX Leagueare the goals. It is common to see more than 20 entries on a single date and it is surprising to see goalless draws, but it seems that these statistics are no longer worthy of rejoicing, but rather an alarm signal for practically all teams.

Tigres, Monterrey and Chivas have us used to winning, liking and thrashing; sometimes they are accompanied by America and Pachuca. However, the reality of Mazatlán, Puebla, Necaxa and other squads is completely different because the wins are against.

And an example of this is the start of the Clausura 2023. It is the most scoring start in any tournament in the history of the Liga MX Femenil, although the fans did not celebrate it. Only Mazatlán has conceded 18 goals in 3 games and with it, more than 100 goals were reached in the first 3 dates.

How does this start with a scoring record help or affect?

While the Women’s MX League boasted this figure with hype and cymbal, the fans expressed anger, annoyance and even concern with this situation. It seems that the perspective of the fans is the one that should dominate in the environment, but also inside of this competition.

Nevertheless, Talking about competition already seems illogical. How many teams are actually competing? How many surprise with a draw or victory and then they stay in the same as always? The only thing that certain teams show is a lack of continuity and practically interest.

Once again, we have the example of Mazatlán. A campus that usually changes almost completely from one tournament to another And it’s not that their footballers are bad, but that they don’t have continuity as a team. In counterpart we have Tigres, who disputes the Clausura 2023 with 7 players who came to the club since the Apertura 2017.

And this does not mean that teams are prohibited from reinforcing their roster; for this reason, we exemplify precisely with Tigres. A club that has a directive that reinforces the staff according to the needs that has the DT in turn.

So whether it’s lack of interest or budget, there’s a long way to go. The distances that seem to be shortening at times have remained a mere mirage and as the sixth anniversary of the Liga MX Femenil approaches, there is more to correct than celebrate.

Yes, the Women’s MX League has us so used to scandalous results, that it seems time to put a stop.

The goals scored during 3 days in each tournament of the Liga MX Femenil

The record in the Clausura 2023 is no coincidence. Only on the first date we had a 5-1 from Pumas to Chivas, 7-0 from Juárez to Mazatlán and Atlas left the Volcán thrashed with a 6-0 courtesy of Tigres. Then in J2, Pachuca beat Toluca 10-2 and América beat Puebla 7-0.

And what about Matchday 3? América was once again forceful with a 5-0 win over Tijuana and Rayadas did their part with a 9-0 win over Mazatlán. For now, the Cañoneras are the worst team in the Women’s MX League.
