Club America's success in the CCL highlights league inconsistencies

Club America advanced past Saprissa 5-0 on aggregate in the CONCACAF Champions League.

Perhaps still smarting a bit from their unexpected league loss to Guadalajara's Leones Negros, Club America nevertheless rallied and won the second leg of their CONCACAF Champions League matchup versus Saprissa handily with a 2-0 victory. That left them with a 5-0 aggregate victory, which may heal the wound of their Liga MX loss somewhat.

The conclusion at Estadio Azteca was almost a given, since Club America had jumped out to a three-goal lead in the away leg in Costa Rica. Still, the result, as...

Herculez Gomez blasts Ventura Alvarado for Mexico, U.S. comments

United States Men's National team head coach, Jurgen Klinsmann notes that he remains optimistic for the future of the USMNT despite the disappointing run of recent results.

U.S. and Puebla forward Herculez Gomez blasted Club America's Ventura Alvarado for not having a sense of nationalism and said the 22-year-old should keep his indecision to himself about playing for either Mexico or the United States rather than involve the media.

"He should decide before he speaks," Gomez told via telephone on Tuesday night. "With all due respect, neither the United States nor Mexico teams want to hear this from him. Both sets of fans want commitment.

"If he feels...

Club America caught napping in surprise loss to Leones Negros

Club America's rise to the top of the Liga MX table hit a bump in the road from a most unexpected place. The less celebrated team from Guadalajara, Leones Negros, defeated the Aguilas by scoring the lone goal of the match in a 1-0 final at Azteca Stadium.

It was a surprising defeat, but perhaps not a shocking one, given how Club America also struggled against Puebla earlier in the season. It's a fatal flaw to underestimate an opponent. Unfortunately for America, it seems to be a habit of late...

Club America throw down gauntlet in CONCACAF Champions League

Osvaldo Martinez and Club America are one step closer to their sixth CONCACAF championship following Wednesday's 3-0 win at Saprissa.
Osvaldo Martinez and Club America are one step closer to their sixth CONCACAF championship following Wednesday's 3-0 win at Saprissa.

The first legs of the CONCACAF Champions League are in the books with two teams -- Club America and Alajuelense -- all but booked for the semifinals, while the other two series are still very much up for grabs. Here are five takeaways from the week that was in the CCL.

1. Club America ruthlessly punish Saprissa

For a good stretch Saprissa were the dominant of the two sides in their Wednesday encounter with America. Playing in front of a frenzied crowd, the Costa Ricans swarmed the Mexican champions...

Club America rest players and still get midweek CCL win vs. Saprissa

A CONCACAF Champions League mid-week match against Saprissa in Costa Rica gave Club America's regular bench players some good practice, but also allowed the team's stars to shine in the 3-0 victory.

It's never easy to play against a Costa Rican squad on native soil, and indeed, for large parts of the match, Saprissa had a lot of the ball and created a number of chances. That the Central American club wasn't able to convert was due less to poor finishing, though, than to the stellar performance...
