Club America and Gustavo Matosas get crucial Liga MX win over Cruz Azul

Oribe Peralta scored a header in the 48th minute to help America beat Cruz Azul 1-0.

Right when coach Gustavo Matosas needed it most, Club America dug deep and produced a crucial victory over derby rival Cruz Azul in the Clasico Joven.

That close win doesn't magically erase the recent slump of Aguilas games lost against an avalanche of goals, but it does throw Matosas and his tenure a crucial lifeline.

Here are three takeaways from the game.

1. New approach at Club America

The win against Cruz Azul came at a cost on a philosophical level. The arrival of Matosas to Club America...

Club America and Cruz Azul with plenty to play for in Mexico City derby

Club America will be missing key players such as Moises Munoz for the weekend's Mexico City derby against Cruz Azul.

The Clasico Joven, or "young classic," as the derby between Mexico City clubs Cruz Azul and America is called, is one of the most storied and bitter in Liga MX.

The 4-0 derby loss to Cruz Azul last season contributed partly to the ousting of then-coach Antonio Mohamed. After the defeat, Mohamed still had Club America in the top spot of the league standings and he still went on to claim the historic 12th championship for the club, but many Aguilas fans couldn't forgive him for that Cruz...

Struggling Chivas to get painful reminder of past glories vs. Cruz Azul

Cruz Azul's 'Maza' Rodriguez, right, will clash with his former club on Saturday.

No Chivas fan of a certain age could forget Francisco "Maza" Rodriguez's looping header in the Apertura 2006 final second leg in the Estadio Nemesio Diez.

The goal equalized the aggregate score against Toluca, laying the foundation for Adolfo "Bofo" Bautista's heroics to win Chivas' 11th title and spark celebrations that lasted not just into the December night, but for days.

Back then, the future was bright for Chivas. Club owner Jorge Vergara had come good on his promise to bring a title to the...

Kannemann's brilliance, referee scrutiny headline Liga MX week five

1. Cruz Azul's defense holds strong

A center-back pairing of Francisco "Maza" Rodriguez and Julio Cesar "Cata" Dominguez, combined with Gerardo Torrado's screening in a holding role just in front of the pair, plus Jesus Corona's exploits in goal, screams solidity and experience for Cruz Azul.

So far this Clausura, those features have been on display in bucket-loads, with La Maquina yet to concede a goal in 450 minutes of play. The water-tight defense has helped Cruz Azul move to first place...

Cruz Azul's stifling defense masks a lack of goals as they sit atop Liga MX

Cruz Azul did win this weekend to go top of Liga MX but they are a difficult, sometimes boring, team to watch.

I would be lying if I were to say that watching Cruz Azul has been fun this season. Despite the fact that manager Luis Fernando Tena has lead the team to an unbeaten start to the 2015 Clausura, it has all been very uneventful to watch -- especially in attack.

After the injury to Paraguayan striker Roque Santa Cruz against Santos Laguna last month, the club has struggled to create and convert their attacking opportunities. Brazilian Jose Carlos Toffolo (or "Alemao") has taken Santa Cruz's place...
