Santos Laguna dominate Chivas Guadalajara to reach Liga MX final

Nestor Calderon celebrates after scoring a 40-yard stunner for Santos Laguna.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- Santos Laguna overcame Chivas 3-0 on Sunday at the Estadio Omnilife to reach the Liga MX Clausura 2015 final, following the 0-0 draw in the first leg on Thursday.

Djaniny Tavares opened the scoring in the 38th minute, with Carlos Izquierdoz heading in the second in the 56th minute and Nestor Calderon launching a 40-yard wonder-strike over keeper Luis Michel in the 68th minute to wrap up a famous victory for the Torreon-based club.

Chivas never really got going and won't...

Chivas and Santos Laguna are set for a tight defensive match

Jose Manuel de la Torre's Chivas are one win away from reaching the 2015 Liga MX Clausura final.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- The sight of the world-class, yet often empty Estadio Omnilife over the last few years seemed to epitomize the state of the whole Chivas institution back before the Clausura 2015, when the club was sliding down the slippery slope towards relegation.

There was an illusion of grandeur on the outside, but inside was a rotten core. The idea of Chivas being a genuinely big club was latent, but without local fans buying into it and actually attending games in the stadium, it...

TORREON, Mexico -- There was a small dust storm and some thunder and lightning in the air, but no goals on Thursday as Santos Laguna tied 0-0 with Chivas in the Liga MX Clausura 2015 semifinal first leg.

Santos Laguna had the better of the play and chances, but the result leaves everything to play for on Sunday in Guadalajara in the Estadio Omnilife, especially with away goals counting.

Here are three quick takeaways from the match.

Chivas will need to pass a tough test vs. Santos to make the Clausura final

De La Torre has Chivas firing on all cylinders and enjoying playing football.

TORREON, Mexico -- Santos Laguna coach Pedro Caixinha colorfully portrayed his side as the "ugly duckling" leading into Thursday's Clausura 2015 semifinal first leg against Chivas at the Estadio Corona.

Few are predicting Los Guerreros can get past Chivas, reach the final and win the Clausura, even though they had arguably the most difficult quarterfinal against Tigres, the regular-season first-place finisher.

"Ugly ducking is an expression that we use because I believe that, from that moment [before...

Marchesin's goalkeeping magic leading Santos in Liguilla

Brazilian star Ronaldinho launches a counterattack with this extraordinary piece of skill in Queretaro's 2-2 Liga MX Torneo Clausura quarterfinal against Veracruz.

With the top four seeds now gone from the postseason, the race for the 2015 Clausura title is now truly up for grabs for the four remaining clubs in the competition.

Without a few key players, it will be interesting to see how Pachuca or Queretaro will adjust when Los Tuzos host Los Gallos Blancos during the first leg at the Estadio Hidalgo on Thursday.

Later on that night in Torreon, a confident Santos Laguna will host a Chivas side that is fresh off a 4-1 thrashing of Atlas on Sunday. Considering...

Fabian career back on track in time for Chivas Liga MX title surge

Marco Fabian has endured a tough road, but looks back to his best.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico -- The erratic career of Marco Fabian appears to be finally gaining some stability and, with Chivas in the semifinal of the Liga MX Clausura and the Copa America coming up next month for Mexico, the timing couldn't be better.

Now 25 and approaching his prime, it has been a long, winding and often-bumpy road for a player whose ceiling in terms of natural ability is arguably higher than any other Mexican currently in the Liga MX.

Following Fabian's first half hat trick and mesmerizing...
