    Thanks for your comments Marc, and indeed Cruz Azul were clearly dominating before the red card!
    I tend to avoid the first three weeks of competition in Liga (you know those unwritten rules!). Tigres looks very powerful, and in the opener Valencia look impressive, but look how things are in Liga MX in the last match he got expelled, here is a constant up and down, winning streaks are not that often seen. Depends against with teams but yes, overs or btts looks like the way to go.
    Lobos BUAP debut in Liga MX shows a team that will provide fierce competition, a refreshing change.

    Re: Can there really be a system?
    Let's simply assume this statement to be accurate :-) Your knowledge has to be superior by more than 6.8% in this case to even start to make a profit. That in itself is hard to achieve and once there it is extremely fragile. Then you have used the word "consistent", if you rely on your knowledge of the sport then you are primarily using your own brain to make betting decisions. Unfortunately the brain isn't exactly "consistent" over time, decisions made today may differ from those you make in a year even given exactly the same circumstances. This means that even if you consistently make a profit over a given period of time that may change at any moment. The problem is you won't know it has changed until you've lost a bundle. So yes it is possible but don't count on it. My advice would be to create some sort of structure in your life that supports you, i.e. a job. Then make arrangements for 'consistency' in your daily life as much as possible. On top of that try your hand at betting but know it takes a long time, several seasons at least before you get any confirmation that indeed you can beat the 6.8% and even then things may 'turn' on you at any moment without you noticing so modesty is the key. One of the problems you'll get is time-management. In order to be profitable you need multiple accounts and take the best prices you can get. Can you be on-line at the right time to do that. You'll see a few systems posted here showing profit. Try your hand at following one on paper. Take the prices you can get at the time you are on-line to place your bet. Often you will need to take a lower price that the system poster has done. That will eat away any profit. Just see what difference it makes.

    Los Angeles Galaxy
    Winless in their last six matches, LA Galaxy has been able to collect five draws in this streak, three of them in home, the team needs to start collecting victories here. And this seems like a good start.
    DF De Jong leave the team to join Galatasaray in Turkey, FW Robbie Keane played on Wednesday his Ireland NT farewell match and could miss this match, together with absences due to injury in last match make the team look thin for this match. Still the dept of the club is impressive, as many players that act as replacement would have starting positions in many teams. So players that other seasons where starters like Alan Gordon, and Jeff Larentowicz return to the lineup for this match, and should deliver a good performance as this is their chance to show their value.
    The team has four game home undefeated streak alive versus Columbus, all the way back to 2007, two wins and two draws in that span. 
    DF Jelle Van Damme
    MF Steven Gerrard 
    FW Gyasi Bardes (season-ending injury)
    Columbus Crew
    Improved in their last thee matches, as they collect two victories, winning last one 2-0 to San Jose Earthquakes on home, now they go on away.  Before they have collected a 10 matches winless streak, still the improvement might come to a hold this week as they encounter this match with several players on international duty or not very fit for playing for the team.
    After this match the go home once again and there the good results could continue, still this match looks very difficult for them to be able to obtain something.

    Only time for this season that the team will face-off . Expect a match dominated by Los Angeles Galaxy, which will enjoy the best scoring chances, still not a field day as Columbus will lay down counterattacking expecting to get at least a point.
    LA Galaxy should return to the winning path as they go home where they are unbeaten, still have draw more matches than winning.  In their favor plays the international callups Columbus have together with their bad performance on away (1 victory in 11 matches). On top of that many questionable players that might not play this match, Columbus absences hurt them more than those in LA Galaxy.

    I also like gogetta opinion, but the international call ups can make things very different as expected, still I do not share one thing:
    The objective to win the CONCACAF Champions League is not very realistic. The difference between the MLS to Liga MX still is very considerable (considering the Liga MX and MLS teams taking part on that tournament).

    Queretaro vs Necaxa
    27 August 2016 23:00 hrs (CET TIME)
    In their last five matches in Liga MX,the team has just obtained a victory against Puebla back in July. From there the team seems to have lost the offensive power and lost their first match in Liga MX against Leon on away.
    In midweek the team played Copa MX, but they send an alternative squad so the main eleven is rested and ready for this match. 
    The team returns home, where they are unbeaten and have only allowed 1 goal in 3 matches. Coach Victor Manuel Vucetich considers this to be a good chance to take home advantage and take 3 points.
    Their return to liga MX has not been very good the team has not won yet, still remarks that they have obtained 4 draws so they have been able to collect point, but there are not enough for a team that first objective is to avoid relegation to Ascenso MX. Their forwards have not been able to score during this season. 
    The team have failed to produce more on offensive which have them leave points on home to Pumas and Tijuana, both great results at home, but on away the team has just not showed that and have lost their last two away matches.
    Necaxa is preparing for changes if the situation is not improved as during the week they present a new sports director that will have to make decisions if the situation continues as it is. 
    I do not see Necaxa getting to victory here, next match in home against Santos seems as a better opportunity for that.
    Necaxa should focus on at least getting a point here, with two points that will be very cautious in defence, Queretaro should dominate the match and get the best scoring chances, and return to the victory path with probable goals of Emmanuel Villa. The need of Necaxa to get points should provoke them to leave open spaces as the match proceeds, as a draw would not be of much use, spaces that Queretaro should capitalize from.

    Ratings tipped up Philadelphia @ 4.20 and Under 2.5 Houston v Seattle last night so a decent result, and well worth keeping an eye on.

    Match ended: Montreal 1-1 DC Utd. In the midst of a stretch of three games in six days, DC coach opted to make 7 changes to the starting team! Montreal also rested two starters. But this did not really change the complexion of the game; the visitors scored a penalty in the 39th minute, setting the stage for a hectic second half and visitor's GK Bill Hamid saved the point for them.

    Montreal Impact vs DC United
    DC is not lacking motivation for this game; it is desperately clinging to the last play-off spot in the Eastern conference and seeks to breathe easier by putting a 3-point cushion ahead of Orlando, while reducing the 5-point difference with the conference rivals directly ahead (the hosts). DC also has the better form at the moment; unbeaten in the last four matches and scoring 6 goals in the last three. The recently signed offensive players Mullins and Lloyd Sam have added spark to the team's attack. Additionally, DC has not done too badly in recent head-to-head meetings with the hosts. But the team is also conceding.
    The hosts come from losing two games in a row, conceding three goals in each while scoring only one goal in both. Montreal have struggled defensively for much of the season, especially vulnerable when opponents counter-attack. In the latest 3-0 home loss to Chicago (Sunday); the defence, midfield and attack all struggled. And this comes before the team faces three games in the next eight days, including the important Canadian derby away to Toronto on Sunday!
    The hosts are expected to react in this match but they are more likely to score a goal than to solve all their defensive issues in three days. The desperate but in-form visitors may seize their chance and get a result. I expect a tentative start to this game but fireworks to follow once the first goal is scored. BTTS  and Over 2.5 goals.

    For Thursday's games as a quick thought, consider home stats for locals and away stats for away teams:
    Columbus Crew vs Philadelphia Union - Columbus draw their home matches more than any other result, meanwhile Philadelphia losses them. Therefore, draw seems the most likely.
    Montreal Impact vs DC United - Good home team versus a team that on away has just won one match, still draw more then loss, therefore Home win or Draw.
    Orlando City vs Toronto FC - Only on defeat on home for Orlando, Toronto mixed results, leaning towards home win.
    Chicago Fire vs LA Galaxy - Mixed results for both, could go either way.
    Houston Dynamo vs Seattle Sounders - home team draws more than win or loss, meanwhile Seattle losses more than anything. I would prefer to stay away, but could be a home win.
    San Jose vs New England - San Jose looks could take a win, still last home match loss against a team that have not won on away the whole season (with 9 away defeats), New England also losses a lot on the road, but San Jose doesn't still the confidence needed. I would stay away.

    Great start of Xolos in Apertura 2017, which has see them improved on the relegation table, and get to the top of the table in this season. The team knows they need two good seasons to avoid being relegated to Ascenso MX and they are doing a good job.

    At home the team has showed great defending and FW Dayron Moreno continues to display his great capabilities scoring. Strong in home, 3 goals average and none received Tijuana is in a very good position for this match.

    Injured: MF Henry Martin

    A very bad start of the season have them winless in 4 matches, alt ought they had good playing against Pumas on away, despite losing the match, and a scoreless draw in home against Necaxa. The team has three consecutive matches without scoring, which seems could stretch at least for one more match.

    Last match important players got injured, with coach Tena having to use the three changes due to those injures, and the team not able to train as usual due to heavy raining in their city, the environment on the team is not the perfect for a comeback.

    GK William Yarborough has stated there is no place for excuses. FW Mauro Boselli has expressed that the locker room does not want the coach fired or any internal problem.

    DF Efrain Velarde, DF Carlos Guzman, MF Alexander Mejia, DF Osvaldo Rodriguez

    Last 3 Leon has not been able to beat Tijuana. The abnormal week of Leon and the changes in the lineup, together with Tijuana great form, should deliver a home win.

    Winless during this season the team has begun their participation on Liga MX in a disastrous way after being in Ascenso MX last season. The reinforcement that arrived during the summer has not performed as expected and the results are not coming. Highlights that since April when they were still in Ascenso MX they have not won at home.

    GK Marcelo Barovero

    Dominating Liga MX, the team has a streak of three victories, with their lone defeat against Puebla 3-2. During midweek the team played against Lobos BUAP in Copa MX, the team used an alternative squad and obtain a 1-1 draw, which allows the team to rest their main squad.

    FW Dayro Moreno continues his good scoring streak and scored last Liga MX match, and should continue in this match. In last match the team did not dominate the match for long stretches and a draw was the most probable result but they get the victory.

    Expect a tense match, Necaxa needs the victory and being at home should motivate them; Meanwhile Tijuana has a comfortable position and I expected them to counterattack.Not an easy match, but in a level ball handicap, I sense Tijuana has a good chance to grab something as they have been performing better.

    Puebla vs America
    Sunday August 21 2016 - 23:00hrs (GMT)
    Winless in their last three matches, Puebla will encounter America trying to return to victory.  The team has a streak of five matches without defeat at Cuauthemoc Stadium, last a victory against Dorados in Copa MX, still they have not face a strong team here. Their season has started in a very irregular way.
    Important absence in Puebla, as MF Toledo is one of the players of Liga MX that provide good movement to the ball and the player with more pass effectiveness.
    MF David Toledo
    During the last five games, the team has lacked consistency as they have alternate victories between defeat and draw. Their performance has allowed them to be on the upper side of the table.
    The team has a strong squad to deliver better performance. FW Silvio Romero and FW Darwin Quintero are expected to score soon. DF Erick Pimentel returns to the squad after serving a one-game suspension.  
    America faces their arch rival next week against Chivas, therefore a good result in this match would see them reach there in a better way.
    FW Oribe Peralta
    Expect a match with many offensive plays as this are two of the best offensives and their defenses are not among the best, so it could be a high scoring match. America arrives as favorites for this match, and their squad is clearly superior to that of Puebla. Puebla needs the victory, which could lead to open spaces that America for sure will take advantage of them.
