Liga MX: Chivas, Queretaro on the rise while Puebla, America slide

The former Barca man only needed six minutes to bag a brace after coming on as a sub for Queretaro.
Things are looking up for Omar Bravo and Chivas de Guadalajara.

It was a good weekend for Chivas de Guadalajara, who lead the Liga MX Clausura table after 14 rounds and also made relegation a mathematical impossibility with Friday's 1-1 draw against Club Tijuana.

At rival Club America, things aren't so rosy after falling 4-0 at home to Queretaro on Saturday, making for an intriguing Clasico Nacional in Guadalajara next Sunday.

Here's the good, the bad and the ugly from the weekend that was in the Liga MX.

Liga MX title contenders Chivas extend undefeated run to five

Omar Bravo edging closer is edging closer to a record.

Chivas de Guadalajara tied 1-1 away at Club Tijuana on Friday, making it five Liga MX games without defeat for the side and moving the team to the brink of the playoffs, with relegation worries now a distant memory.

Omar Bravo was the savior for Los Rojiblancos, after he equalized in the 66th minute, following Jesus Chavez's opener for Xolos in the 16th. The goal put Bravo just two behind team legend Salvador "Chava" Reyes, who is the club's highest goal-scorer.

Chivas were slow out the blocks and...

Carlos Salcedo is emerging as one of Mexico's brightest young defenders

Take a "By The Numbers" approach to the continued rivalry between the United States and Mexico.
Carlos Salcedo is one of the biggest reasons that Chivas is finding its way out of the Liga MX relegation zone.

SAN ANTONIO -- Even before the World Cup in Brazil, questions had been asked about who could lead El Tri's defense in the post-Rafa Marquez era. It has been a problematic question for Miguel Herrera and was an issue even for previous coach Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre.

Seemingly from nowhere, a short-term solution has emerged that ticks all the boxes and could one day be a more permanent solution to this succession question: Chivas' Carlos Salcedo.

The 21-year-old will make his Mexico debut...

Chivas top the Liga MX table, completing a remarkable turnaround

Chivas Guadalajara coach Jose Manuel de la Torre and his brother Nestor -- the club's president -- deserve credit for dragging the club back from the brink of relegation.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- It's been a long time since life tasted this sweet for Chivas Guadalajara fans.

Less than one month ago, the club was on the brink of falling to last place in the relegation table in its game against Puebla. Now, following the team's 1-0 victory over Leon on Sunday, the club is top of the Liga MX Clausura table, in the Copa MX final and, most importantly, relegation is a distant, horrible past memory.

Here are three takes from Sunday's match and Chivas' recent rise from the...

America's win in the Clasico Joven moves it up in the Power Rankings

The ESPN FC crew predict a suspension for Juan Arango's for biting an opponent, but do not expect the same sort as Luis Suarez did.
Oribe Peralta's winner in the Clasico Joven for Club America over Cruz Azul helped the inconsistent club secure a vital three points and third place in this week's Power Rankings.

There was a total of 31 times that the 18 teams scored over the weekend. Most noticeably, the games between Leon vs Queretaro and Club Tijuana vs Monterrey had an astonishing total of 16 goals.

With only two draws and little lack of excitement from the weekend, let's check out the recent updated Power Rankings for the Liga MX.

1. Veracruz (no change)

Despite the 3-1 loss to Tigres on Saturday, Veracruz is still No. 1 in the rankings. The recent lack of wins for first-place Club Tijuana and a near-defeat...

Chivas' Michel shines as Atlas' Gonzalez misses golden opportunity

Luis Michel is congratulated by his teammates after his penalty save.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico - There's sometimes a fine line between becoming a hero and falling flat on your face and Atlas' 20-year-old Mexico international Arturo "Ponchito" Gonzalez slipped towards the latter on Saturday in Guadalajara's derby between Atlas and Chivas.

The midfielder tried an outrageous Panenka from the penalty spot with the last kick of the match, with the score at 1-1, but Chivas goalkeeper Luis Michel reacted from his dive to the left and clawed the ball away.

It was a wild ending...
