Same issues plaguing Club America


Club America's patience is paying off

ESPN FC's Katia Castorena and Leon Lecanda recap Club America's 2-0 win over Cruz Azul, where Oribe Peralta notched a goal in the win.

Club America claimed bragging rights in the Clasico Joven on Saturday, defeating Cruz Azul 2-0 in a game where the Aguilas players' complete control of the match stood out even more than the goals they scored to seal the victory.

The thing about any fine exotic car, like, say, a Ferrari, is that it's a delicate machine that can run poorly, or not at all, if conditions aren't right. It's certainly not as hardy as a Jeep or even a fuel-efficient compact vehicle. But when it's tuned right and running...

Club America face important test vs. struggling Cruz Azul in Clasico Joven

Ignacio Ambriz has America on the right track, but he'll need to continue his winning ways against rival Cruz Azul.

Cruz Azul and Club America face off Saturday in the Clasico Joven. As ever in a derby contest, there's hope for a scintillating match that will thrill fans and enter the history books of the long-standing rivalry. At the same time, the expectations for this game are probably at a low, given the fact that the two clubs seem to be headed in different directions. Cruz Azul fans are likely bracing themselves for the result, hoping to avoid embarrassment.

Here are five things to watch for in the match.

Andres Andrade making an impact for Club America

Andres "El Rifle" Andrade's brace paced Club America to a comfortable 3-1 win over Veracruz.

Club America turned in another composed performance on Saturday, securing a victory against Veracruz with a 3-1 result. Since dropping their first two games of the season, Ignacio Ambriz and his players have won every game on the trot, as the new coach seems to have won the trust of his players, partly by his use of effective tactics to win matches.

It was a revealing quote by Oswaldo Martinez to the press before the match when he described Club America's new coach as "humble".

Perhaps the...

Ambriz under pressure as America eke out unimpressive win over Walter Ferretti

Ignacio Ambriz and Club America squeaked by Walter Ferretti, thanks to a goal from Michael Arroyo.

It was a 1-0 victory that came a little too close to the end of the match for Club America fans, but the Mexican club got the win against Nicaragua's Walter Ferretti in CONCACAF Champions League Group E.

It's too soon to get complacent. All those enjoying the Ignacio Ambriz era at Club America, including Ambriz himself, have to face up to the reality that the margin for error is practically nonexistent.

Although it was assumed by many that former El Tri coach Miguel Herrera would probably be interested...

Under Ignacio Ambriz, improved Club America tops Liga MX Power Ranks

Ignacio Ambriz has rallied Club America from its struggles early in the season to one of the best teams in Liga MX.

Believe it or not, but the Liga MX Apertura is already over a quarter of the way through.

With only 12 games left until the Liguilla (playoffs), several clubs will need to pick up their form if they wish to fight for an Apertura title this year. As for the current leaders in the league table in Leon and Veracruz, they must be cautious of the rising form of teams like America and Monterrey.

Here are week five's Liga MX power rankings:

Perhaps it was a bit too early to criticize America...

Dario Benedetto's brace continues Club America's win streak in Liga MX

Dario Benedetto appears to be over his recent struggles after he scored a brace for Club America in its win over Santos.

With Club America's 2-0 win over defending Liga MX champions Santos Laguna, the club now has a winning record in league action. After five matches, the Aguilas appear to have put the two-match losing streak at the start of the season firmly behind them with three straight wins.

Aside from the positive results, manager Ignacio Ambriz has the team putting together composed performances that generate a number of quality chances. The club now avoids getting flustered when an early flurry of energy doesn't...
