Liga MX action has heated up on Univision in the US, as the network’s presentation of the Apertura 2018 semi-finals delivered the two most-watched Liga MX matches of the season on any network.

ligamx 13 dec 2018The games averaged 1.6 million total viewers in primetime and 812,000 adults 18-49. Kicking off last Thursday on Univision and simulcast on Univision Deportes Network, the first leg of the semi-final featuring America vs. UNAM was the highest-rated Liga MX match of the season, regardless of language, and the top-rated club soccer match since Toluca-Santos (also on Univision) in May. The delivery bested TNT’s broadcast of NBA double-header Knicks-Celtics and Rockets-Jazz across all key demos.

The second and final leg of America-UNAM, also broadcast on Univision and simulcast on UDN on Sunday became the second most-watched Liga MX match of the season on any network.

Cruz Azul versus Monterrey, airing last Saturday on Univision and simulcast on UDN, delivered 1.5 million total viewers.

The Liga MX Gran Final featuring Club America-Cruz Azul begins Thursday, 13 December with coverage starting on UDN at 8:30 p.m. ET and on Univision at 9 p.m. ET. Coverage for the second leg will get underway Sunday, December 16 at 6:30 p.m. ET on UDN and 7 p.m. ET on Univision.
