Liga MX

Chivas show heart and character but threat of relegation still looms

Chivas Guadalajara is a big club in Mexico, but are currently going through some difficult times.

Omar Bravo came to Chivas' rescue on Sunday evening, netting an 84th-minute goal to hand the relegation-threatened side a 1-1 tie in the Guadalajara derby against  Leones Negros.

It was Chivas' first attempt on target in a game that once again highlighted the deficiencies and lack of cohesion in the team and did little to dispel fears about going down.

Nevertheless, Sunday's point could turn out to be a vital one come the end of the season, with four teams -- Veracruz, Puebla, Chivas and Leones...

Chivas' five keys to victory against Leones Negros

Chivas Guadalajara is a big club in Mexico, but are currently going through some difficult times.

It's not every week that 4,000 fans attend a training session in hopes of radiating good vibes and support through to their club's players. But that's what Chivas fans did on Friday, emphasizing just how much of a massive match it is on Sunday in the Guadalajara relegation derby against Leones Negros.

Leones Negros are just ahead of Chivas in the relegation table at present, and although Chivas took a significant step forward last weekend in their win against Pumas when they filled the Estadio...

Vergara at his combative best in addressing Chivas crisis

Chivas Guadalajara is a big club in Mexico, but are currently going through some difficult times.

Chivas owner Jorge Vergara did a different kind interview on Thursday, with ESPN.com.mx inviting users of social media to ask the polemic businessman questions about the club, using the hashtag #preguntaleavergara (ask Vergara).

What followed was a fascinating exchange with Vergara at his provocative best, admitting some mistakes that led to the club being on the verge of relegation from Liga MX, but staunchly defending his record at the club since he took over in 2002.

The exchange gave...

Chivas Guadalajara's group of strikers are starting to show signs of improving

Aldo de Nigris ended an almost year-long goal drought by scoring against Dorados de Sinaloa in Copa MX Clausura.
 

When Aldo de Nigris scored the opening goal in Chivas Guadalajara's 1-1 draw against rival Atlas back on March 23, 2014, no one would've believed he would have to wait 305 long days to get his next.

But the striker -- brought in to much acclaim at Chivas in June 2013 when he was still a Mexico regular -- finally broke his long scoring drought on Wednesday evening in the team's 2-2 tie against Ascenso MX side Dorados de Sinaloa in the club's Copa MX Clausura group stage opener.

De Nigris scored...

Chivas notch big home win in front of sellout crowd

Marco Fabian celebrates a spectacular goal in front of a sellout crowd in Guadalajara.

Chivas' 2-1 win over Pumas inside the Estadio Omnilife on Sunday felt like a cleansing of sorts for the troubled institution.

Two bona fide golazos, a full stadium cheering the team on and -- most importantly -- three precious points. Sunday was a rare glimpse of what Chivas are and can be when the fans and team come together.

The relegation problems almost seemed to be pushed to the back of the mind, with even the usually serious Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre finding time late on to encourage...

Chivas get much-needed win as Veracruz continue to set the pace

The 2015 Clausura will be a make-or-break season for Chepo de la Torre's Chivas.
Ex-Mexico boss Chepo de la Torre is in his second spell as Chivas coach.

Another week of Liga MX is in the books, and here are five things we learned. 

1. Rumors of Chivas' relegation have been greatly exaggerated.

Yes, Chivas was at the bottom of the standings after the first week of matches, but it was always going to take some time for the new reinforcements to jell and be able to help the squad defeat opponents.
