Club America, Toluca and Monterrey still atop Liga MX Power Rankings

Oribe Peralta scored for Club America for the first time in more than two months.

Club America had time to stew over the 4-0 loss to Mexico City rival Cruz Azul during the international break. The return to Liga MX action brought an authoritative display and a 2-0 home victory against Monterrey, both of which consolidated America as the early favorite for the Apertura 2014 crown.

Antonio Mohamed perhaps hasn't had the credit he has deserved for gradually shaping Miguel "Piojo" Herrera's already-successful team into his image and, most importantly, keeping everyone onside through...

Club America bounce back with clutch win versus Monterrey

Pablo Aguilar helped Club America get back on the winning track in Las Aguilas' home victory over Monterrey.

With a secure, if not emphatic, 2-0 victory over Monterrey, top place in the Liga MX standings belongs to Club America. The team's win seems to have consigned the Cruz Azul defeat inflicted two weeks ago to a mere blip on the radar screen.

Truth be told, Monterrey was a more clear and present danger to the Aguilas in the standings. They have been only a step behind Club America nearly all season long. Clearly, coach Antonio Mohamed made sure his players were ready, as they attacked hard from...

Clash with Monterrey good liguilla prep for Club America

Liga MX leaders Club America return to action two weeks after getting walloped 4-0 at Cruz Azul.
Liga MX leaders Club America return to action two weeks after getting walloped 4-0 at Cruz Azul.

In some ways, the international break for Liga MX came at a bad time for Club America. One might think that leading the league gives the team the luxury of being unperturbed by a weekend stoppage to accommodate national squad play, but no organization wants to wallow in the wake of a 4-0 loss for long.

Yet that's exactly what Club America had to endure, with two weeks to stew over the defeat to longtime rivals Cruz Azul. Sure, the team is far above Cruz Azul in the standings, but that consolation...

Cruz Azul stun league leaders Club America in the Clasico Joven derby

Club America players trudge off the field after their 4-0 defeat.

Even in the matches Club America hasn't won this season, it has prevented opponents from scoring many goals. In fact, no team in the Apertura thus far has managed to notch more than two against the Aguilas. At least, until now, when Cruz Azul hung four goals on Club America in claiming the Clasico Joven derby between the two squads on Saturday.

The 5 matches to watch in Week 12 of Liga MX

Oribe Peralta, left, and Eric Pimentel have America flying high as they head to the classic rivalry with Cruz Azul.

What more could Liga MX fans ask for than 18 season games in just one week?

Nine of the 18 have already been played, with the rest of the matches left for this weekend. It's a true testament to endurance for squads who have played two league games in such a short amount of time. Others, such as last-placed Morelia, will unfortunately have the shortest break and play two games in just three days.

Considering the games from earlier this week, here are my five matches to watch this weekend in Week...
