Copa MX

Copa MX Clasico Nacional: Chivas to spoil party, America to salvage pride?

In the last edition of Mexico's Clasico Nacional, Chivas thumped Club America 3-0 in a heated battle at Estadio Azteca.

Another highly anticipated edition of Mexico's ​Clasico Nacional is upon us, with Chivas traveling to Estadio Azteca to take on Club America in the semifinals of the Copa MX. ESPN FC asked our writers Tom Marshall in Guadalajara and Nayib Moran in Mexico City to set the scene for the historic clash.

Club America must focus on the football amid centenario controversy

Club America defeated Club Tijuana 1-0 in its celebratory centennial match on Saturday.

Club America has been embroiled in controversy off the pitch during its centenario season, but what happens on the field remains the most important point. And there too, Las Aguilas have been found wanting. Ricardo La Volpe's team advanced to the semifinals of the Copa MX and is on track to secure a Liguilla spot, but it has yet to fully convince with its performances and depth.

Can America do it? Can Las Aguilas lift trophies by season's end and give their fans a fitting celebration as...

Round 13 of matches in the Liga MX Apertura 2016 is done and dusted.

Here's five talking points from another absorbing weekend of football:

1. Ricardo La Volpe's Club America marches on

Las Aguilas' coach may have goalkeeper Moises Munoz and Club Tijuana's erratic finishing, as well as some luck, to thank for the 1-0 victory over Xolos on Saturday, but he won't care.

America has now picked up eight from 12 available points since La Volpe took over on Sept. 22 and has moved into fifth position in...

Liga MX Talking Points: Dream or disaster for America in centenario?

Club America celebrate v Chivas
Will Club America win its 13th league title at the end of the 2016 Apertura?

Club America celebrated its 100th birthday on Oct. 12. The club's all-time leading goalscorer, Luis Roberto Alves "Zague," told ESPN FC's Nayib Moran that failing to win the 2016 Apertura would be a "huge blow for the fans' moral," adding that securing the Copa MX trophy "wouldn't have the same taste or feeling" during the club's 100-year celebrations. So, we asked our Liga MX writers Tom Marshall, Moran and Cesar Hernandez to weigh in: Will it be a dream or disaster finish for Las Aguilas in...

Club America's centenario celebrations must be capped off with Apertura title

Club America's most recent title came against Tigres in the 2016 CONCACAF Champions League.

MEXICO CITY -- Club America entered the 2016 Apertura radiating confidence and consistency. Arriving off the back of four titles wins since 2013 -- two Liga MX (2013 Clausura, 2014 Apertura) and two CONCACAF Champions League (2014, 2016) trophies -- it looked set to celebrate its centennial year in style.

But now, only a Liga MX title will salvage a season marked by angst, frustration and uncertainty.

In September, Ricardo Pelaez was forced to do something he had never done in his position as America...
