MLS vs Liga MX All-Stars live score, updates, highlights & lineups from 2022 edition in Minnesota

For the second straight year the best players from MLS and Liga MX will go head-to-head in an All-Star Game that continues to fuel the rivalry between the two North American leagues.

What’s ironic about this matchup is that the MLS squad will have the most high-profile Mexican stars between the two teams. The MLS All-Stars will be captained by LA Galaxy’s Mexican forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, who starred for the Mexican national team alongside fellow All-Star Carlos Vela of LAFC. 

The Liga MX side features a host of South American talent alongside up-and-coming Mexican players who are hoping to lock up places on Mexico’s 2022 World Cup team. It features six players each from Atlas and Pachuca, who faced off for the most recent Mexican league title. 

MLS has claimed the upper hand in the most recent head-to-head matchups between the two biggest leagues on the continent. MLS beat Liga MX on penalties in last year’s All-Star Game and then the Columbus Crew beat Cruz Azul in the annual Campeones Cup battle between league champions.

Earlier this year, the Seattle Sounders became the first MLS team to knock off a Mexican opponent in the final of the CONCACAF Champions League, providing the latest twist in the ongoing MLS vs. Liga MX saga.
