Five lessons from first leg of Liga MX Liguilla quarterfinals

Humberto Suazo's penalty miss doomed Monterrey against Atlas.
Humberto Suazo's penalty miss doomed Monterrey against Atlas.

Four games down, four more to go.

The Liga MX Liguilla didn't exactly start off with a bang, but the lack of goals from the first leg of the quarterfinals should inspire the eight clubs to have more lively performances this weekend.

As for the first leg, the games may have been a bit underwhelming at times, but there were still lessons to be learned from the matches on Wednesday and Thursday evening.

Here are my five takeaways from the first batch of games from the 2014 Apertura playoffs:

Heart carries River Plate past Boca Juniors

River Plate summoned just enough to edge past rivals Boca Juniors in the Copa Sudamericana semifinals.
River Plate summoned just enough to edge past rivals Boca Juniors in the Copa Sudamericana semifinals.

BUENOS AIRES -- There's a saying that it doesn't matter if you play well or poorly in Superclásicos, you have to just win them, and it looks like River took to the pitch with this well in mind in their attempt to win, not only a decisive match, but the entire semifinal round of the Copa Sudamericana. The thought being: when you don't have the skill and your legs don't respond, it's your heart that does the pushing.

For the return leg at the Monumental, the Millionarios put a little bit of each...

Can AS Roma get over their UCL disappointment in Moscow?

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the scenarios for the teams trying to qualify from Group E in the Champions League.

It's a cross Roma will have to bear.

Vasili Berezutski checked inside and curled a ball into the area for his teammates, Alan Dzagoev and Seydou Doumbia. This was a Champions League Hail Mary. Caught between two CSKA stools, goalkeeper Morgan de Sanctis froze in the Moscow cold. Anticipating point-blank contact from one of them, it touched neither and fell into his net.

A speculative swing of Berezutski's boot instead felt like a sucker punch. It floored Roma. Francesco Totti told Sky Italia afterward...

Tigres primed to claim Liga MX Apertura championship

Tigres are in a good position to advance to the Liga MX Liguilla semifinals following their quarterfinal first leg 1-1 draw at Pachuca.
Tigres are in a good position to advance to the Liga MX Liguilla semifinals following their quarterfinal first leg 1-1 draw at Pachuca.

No firm favorite.

That was the general consensus ahead of the Liga MX quarterfinal first legs. Ninety minutes later in each of the ties, it largely holds.

Tigres tied 1-1 away at Pachuca, Pumas won 1-0 against Club America, Chiapas drew 1-1 against Toluca and Atlas secured the best result of any with a 1-0 road win over Monterrey.

There's not much between any of the teams and doubts remain about all of them, but at halftime in the quarterfinals, I'm prepared to put my neck on the line and...

Comparing the current New England Revs squad to the 2007 team

Relive the first legs of the MLS conference finals which were full of thunder, controversy and vengeance.

Major League Soccer years are almost like dog years. In a league of constant change, in which nothing is quite the same from one year to the next, even a few years ago seem to be in a distant, misty past that feels like a strange dream when compared to the current reality.

Whether it's the rash of new stadiums, a host of expansion teams or the shifting way the North American game is played, the differences between the MLS of say, 2007, and the MLS of today are stark.

And 2007 just happens to be...

Keane quits Villa having made little impression

Paul Lambert refused to be drawn on his future at Aston Villa saying he is simply concentrating on trying to win games starting against Burnley.

When Roy Keane was appointed as Villa's assistant manager in the summer, the question on most supporters' minds was simply this: How long will he stay? The general consensus was that Keane's stint at the club would be brief and his departure after four months and 12 games of the Premier League season is far from a surprise. It was always a matter of when, not if.

It never felt like a comfortable fit: Keane, with his monstrously huge public persona and a former top-flight manager himself, playing...
