Half of the tournament came, the Matchday 9, and a Double Date is also coming, or Triple if the two weekends are counted.
The teams are already separating between favorites, hopefuls, those who will remain in limbo and those who struggle not to pay the fine for those who are in the last places of the quotient.
And the particular thing is that there is still no technician who has been fired in the Guardians 2021.

This is historical, in the short tournaments, from 1996 to date, they had never reached this height without a head having rolled. The longest the teams had taken to kick out a coach was the Day 7, twice.
The first was in the Summer 99, when Jose Treviño he was kicked out of Monterrey on Matchday 7. Carlos Jara Saguier entered his place.
The second was in the Opening 2002, on that occasion they thanked Sergio Good at Santos Laguna, and his replacement was Luis Fernando Tena.
ON THE TABLET
But the goodwill of the managers could end. There are three technical directors which, you could say, are on the board if they don’t get good results in the mid-game and weekend games.
Paulo Pezzolano in Pachuca. The Uruguayan has survived in the Tuzos despite being the only team that has not won in the tournament. The technician was reinforced by the team and even so he has not managed to get good results. He has earned three points, out of a possible 24. His rivals will be: Necaxa and Tijuana.
Andrés Lillini in Pumas. Although they have just renewed it and it is ensured that they will endure the entire tournament no matter what, the morale of the University students is on the ground. The absences due to the sale of players: Carlos González to Tigres, and Alejandro Mayorga, although he returned to Guadalajara for not having a purchase option, have weighed too much on the university team. The promise to sustain it is there, but perhaps being so close to the basement could make the board change its mind. Five points is a pittance. His rivals will be: Santos Laguna and Cruz Azul.
José Guadalupe Cruz in Necaxa. Profe Cruz’s team was dismantled and that has caused everything he won the previous tournament to go to the hole. Many draws and many losses have the Rays near the bottom of the competition table. The directive is patient, but before the bad results could despair. Six points added in the tournament, suggest a close cessation. The rivals on the next two dates will be: Pachuca and Santos Laguna.
