50-50 Challenge: America vs. Chivas

50-50 Challenge

America's patience paying off

Club America

Club America bounces back with win over Chiapas

Paul Aguilar gives Club America the lead against Chiapas.

Club America bounced back from a poor run of two straight losses with a 2-1 Liga MX victory over Chiapas FC on Saturday.

The game showcased the grit of the Aguilas players more than anything else. The fact that Chiapas got an equalizer so soon after Paul Aguilar opened the scoring could have discouraged the Mexico City squad but, if so, they fought through that to win their first game in the last three outings.

Here are three things to take away from the game.

1. Perhaps Sambueza should stay on...

Club America looks to end recent Liga MX struggles in match vs. Chiapas

Club America's captain Rubens Sambueza hasn't delivered as expected since receiving the armband.

As Club America reels from two straight losses, manager Ignacio Ambriz hasn't put forth the most stirring defense of his players, telling media recently, "We're not so bad."

Not bad is certainly not good, however. The thing is, Club America hasn't really found equilibrium and consistency this season. All of its matches are wins or losses, there hasn't been a single draw in this entire season. The team's 18 points, which was a fine and acceptable total two weeks ago, now has the squad mired in...

Rising Toluca and Chivas among five Liga MX stories to follow this weekend

Toluca has surprised Liga MX observers with a steady rise to the top of the table.

Liga MX Week 12 kicks off just two days after mid-week action on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tired legs and minds will have little time to regroup as the Apertura tournament keeps pushing forward to the final stages of the regular season.

A few of the league's biggest teams struggled during Week 11 and will look to quickly recapture some success during this weekend.

Here are five things to watch during Week 12:

1. Toluca stealing the spotlight

Slowly, but surely, Toluca has moved up the league...

America captain Rubens Sambueza sent-off as Aguilas lose again

Club America captain Rubens Sambueza, left, earned an early bath in the 3-0 loss to Leon.

Club America's 3-0 loss to Leon was their worst this season not only in terms of total goals suffered, but also for how the defeat affects the team trajectory this season.

Only days ago, Club America was stalking the leadership of Liga MX. Now the team has suffered two straight losses. Unlike their early season setbacks or the referee-affected loss against Tigres, Club America can only blame themselves for this latest fiasco.

Club America can perhaps claim to be distracted or frustrated by a sideline...

Chivas Guadalajara highlight Club America's shortcomings in clasico win

Club America's Andres Andrade takes on Chivas' Jorge Enriquez, left, and Oswaldo Alanis.

It's never possible to look past the final score when a game matters as much as the clasico nacional between Chivas Guadalajara and Club America did.

The 2-1 result in favour of Chivas was shocking, however, partly because of the discrepancy between the two squads. Guadalajara is fighting relegation, while the Aguilas squad is near the top of the Liga MX table.

That situation hasn't changed with this one game, but Club America's title credentials have to be in question after this result. Big games...

Omar Bravo leads Chivas Guadalajara to stunning win over Club America

Omar Bravo scored twice and Chivas Guadalajara held on with 10 men to defeat Club America 2-1 in the Super Clasico on Saturday night.

Relegation-threatened Chivas de Guadalajara defeated rival Club America 2-1 on Saturday in Mexico's Clasico Nacional, despite playing the entire second half with 10 men.

Omar Bravo was the hero of the entertaining game with two first half goals, but Chivas midfielder Carlos Salcido was sent off just before half-time and Oswaldo Martinez converted the resulting penalty. In the second 45 minutes, Chivas held on and repelled waves of attacks from Club America to earn a vital three points in their battle...
