Chivas' Apertura ends on sour note as Almeyda seeks relegation escape

The woes of Jose Ramirez and Chivas continued with a soggy 1-0 defeat in Guanajuato.
Chivas have endured a troubled campaign and face a fight to avoid relegation this season.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Chivas ended their Apertura 2015 campaign on Sunday with a painful 3-0 loss against Santos Laguna.

Bryan Rabello opened the scoring in the first half, with Jose Abella and Cesar Ibanez netting after the break to wrap up the points for Santos Laguna. Chivas finish the season in 13th place in the Liga MX table and has now made the playoffs just once in the past six seasons.

Here are five takes from their troubled campaign so far ...

Avoiding relegation still club's priority

Marco Fabian stunner hands Chivas Clasico Tapatio win over Atlas

Marco Fabian was the hero for Chivas as his lone goal would be enough to defeat Atlas.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Marco Fabian was the hero for Chivas in Wednesday's Clasico Tapatio after scoring the goal in his team's 1-0 win over Guadalajara city rivals Atlas in the Estadio Jalisco.

The three points move Chivas further away from last-placed Dorados de Sinaloa in the relegation table, although neither Chivas nor Atlas could mathematically reach the playoffs before the game.

Here are three rapid takes from the game:

Atlas and Chivas battle for pride and little else in Clasico Tapatio

Raul Lopez and Chivas will try to bring some light to the end of their season against Atlas.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Behind Mexico City, regional giants Monterrey and Guadalajara share a rivalry over which is Mexico's true second city.

Nuevo Leon's Monterrey has risen in the relatively recent past to become an economic, political and industrial powerhouse in the north, while in western Mexico, Guadalajara and Jalisco are home of the country's best known traditions: mariachi, tequila, charreria and, some would argue, Chivas.

But when it comes to soccer, Monterrey is by far outstripping...

Chivas crumble, Javier Aquino leads Veracruz: Liga MX Week 16 lessons

Javier Aquino, right, continued his sparkling form as Veracruz fight for a playoff spot.

MEXICO CITY, Mexico -- With one game left in the 2015 Apertura's regular season, Pumas will finish in first place. Guillermo Vazquez's team got an important 2-1 win over Victor Manuel Vucetich's Club Queretaro, which was coming off two big wins against America and Rayados.

As the Apertura enters its last week of games, teams will have about two weeks to prepare for the big weekend in which seven teams will be vying for three remaining playoff places. Here are five lessons learned from Liga MX,...

Chivas' loss to Dorados effectively ends playoff dream for Matias Almeyda

Matias Almeyda brought an exciting style of play to the team, but his playoff hopes are over.

The Liga MX Apertura 2015 playoff dream is surely over for Chivas, thanks largely to Dorados de Sinaloa's Segundo Castillo.

The Ecuadorian scored from two late corners -- including a 96th-minute winner -- to cancel out Marco Fabian's opener for Chivas and leave the Guadalajara team needing a minor miracle if it is to make the playoffs following a 2-1 loss.

Chivas need to re-focus on Liga MX after energizing Copa MX win

Chivas will need to quickly forget the joy of a Copa MX trophy and re-focus on Liga MX.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- After the joy and celebration comes the hard reality for Chivas.

The club lifted the Copa MX on Wednesday with a 1-0 win over Leon. That ends a nine-year trophy drought for Chivas, but it also raises the expectations of a fan base that has suffered over recent years.

Club America has won the Liga MX title twice over the last three years, with the Clausura 2013 victory leveling Chivas' 11 wins and the Apertura 2014 title surpassing the Guadalajara team as Mexico's...
