Club America in ominous form

Club America

Ignacio Ambriz the latest to attempt appeasing Club America brass

Club America have appointed former Queretaro manager Ignacio Ambriz as their manager after parting ways with Gustavo Matosas.

Club America moved on relatively quickly from the Gustavo Matosas era, officially presenting Ignacio Ambriz as the team's new coach on May 26. The team has signed him to a two-year contract, although any fan of the club knows full well that could be cut short if Ambriz fails to live up to expectations.

"It's a professional alliance and we seek order and balance on the field. We evaluated who could help us and that's why we brought in 'Nacho,'" said club president Ricardo Pelaez. "We want to give...

Gustavo Matosas firing from America partly due to arrogance on both sides

Favorites Club America unexpectedly exited the playoffs after losing a two-leg tie to Pachuca.

At first glance, it seemed like such an ideal fit: A suave Uruguyan coach paired with the wealthiest and most successful club in Liga MX history. Gustavo Matosas had the substance to back up his flashy style as well, since he was the only coach that had managed to win Liga MX titles alongside Club America's last two championships. That was back when he was in charge of Leon, with a squad considered measurably weaker than America's powerhouse roster.

Yet the promise of attractive, attacking soccer...

Club America have questions to consider before next season

Gustavo Matosas will likely be granted a grace period with Club America.

Club America's Clausura 2015 season is dead, but the team's administration still has a lot of decisions to make in order to rally and chase another title in the upcoming Apertura season.

The first question that could have a major impact on the team going forward is that of coach Gustavo Matosas. At a low point in the season, following losses by multiple goals to different teams, club president Ricardo Pelaez had to call a press conference to let everyone know that Matosas was not about to be fired....

Plucky Pachuca sends Club America crashing out of the Liga MX Liguilla

Defending Liga MX champions Club America have been eliminated from the playoffs by Pachuca.

With a 4-3 loss, the defending champions are out of the Clausura Liguilla 2015 in the first round. All Club America needed to do after the first leg ended 3-2 in favour of Pachuca was score a goal.

The Aguilas squad scored three, but they ultimately lost, of course, because the team gave up four goals to a youthfully persistent Pachuca. The Tuzos, backstopped by the seemingly ageless Oscar Perez and featuring a number of impressive young players, move on with a chance to claim a sixth title for...

Liga MX favorites Tigres and Club America on upset alert in Liguilla

Dario Benedetto and Club America will need to score a few more goals to overcome Pachuca in the second leg.

The Clausura Liguilla kicked off with two wins and two draws for the lower seeds, who hosted the first legs of the quarterfinals.

Every squad still has a fighting chance, and some favorites are in danger of upset. Now each have just 90 more minutes to make a case for themselves for a spot at the semifinals of the Liguilla.

Here are five things to watch for this weekend.

1. America pushing for another comeback at the Azteca

Pachuca might have the 3-2 win in hand against America, but Las Aguilas will...

Club America left with plenty to do after first-leg Pachuca loss

Dario Benedetto's 50th-minute goal was not enough to inspire Club America to a win.

With a 3-2 loss in the first leg of playoff action, Club America must rely on their experience and internal motivation to win at home in Estadio Azteca in order to advance to the next round. Pachuca's youthful defiance notwithstanding, the Aguilas did well not to let the match slip out of reach when at times it seemed they were about to be overrun.

Yet coach Gustavo Matosas and his squad still have work to do in order to secure a victory against the upstart Tuzo players. Here are three key lessons...
