Liga MX sides struggle in CONCACAF Champions League week three

A 2-1 loss to San Francisco has Luis Noriega, center, and Queretaro in danger of missing the CCL quarterfinals.
A 2-1 loss to San Francisco has Luis Noriega, center, and Queretaro in danger of missing the CCL quarterfinals.

With the 2015-16 CONCACAF Champions League group stage at the halfway point, a number of groups are still very much in doubt. Here are five things learned from matchday three.

1. Winless week for Liga MX

After a less-than-flattering performance last week, the three Liga MX sides in action could only muster one point in this week's slot of CCL contests. What has to be frustrating for Santos, Queretaro and Tigres is that they all led in their respective matches. Santos and Queretaro looked good...

Mexico losing out with no players in European summer transfer window

Javier Aquino is just one of many players no longer plying their trade in Europe.

A loan deal taking 19-year-old Omar Govea from Club America's Under-20s to Porto B is the sum total of transfer deals involving Mexican players heading over the Atlantic this summer. And with the transfer window in Europe closing on Monday (Tuesday in the Premier League), there is silence when it comes to rumors regarding imminent Mexican signings.

The net movement between the Liga MX and Europe this summer will very likely be a net loss come Sept. 2. Javier Aquino left Villarreal and returned...

Liga MX features Clasico Joven, Toluca vs. Leon and Pako Ayestaran's debut

Dario Benedetto and Club America are looking like the early favorites for the 2015 Apertura title.

It has officially been over a month since the Apertura has started, and the league is slowly starting to take shape.

Leon, America, Pumas and Toluca are starting to look like early title contenders, while others like Santos Laguna must pick themselves up and quickly gain vital points in the Liga MX table.

Let's take a look at the five things to watch during Liga MX's Week 7 of the Apertura:

1. Clasico Joven between Cruz Azul and America

What better way to start Saturday's group of games than to...

Emanuel Villa hat trick stands out in Liga MX Best XI

Tigres completed the comeback late in the second half at Estadio Caliente against Tijuana as Joffre Guerron's late strike would seal a 2-1 win for his side.
Emanuel Villa's hat trick against Cruz Azul helped Queretaro earn their first Liga MX victory of the Apertura.
Emanuel Villa's hat trick against Cruz Azul helped Queretaro earn their first Liga MX victory of the Apertura.

Even defenders were scoring during an exciting Week 6 of the Liga MX Apertura which contained 30 goals in just nine matches.

Although these defensive players surprised many with their offensive talents, it was Queretaro striker Emanuel Villa who stole most of the headlines with his three goals scored for Los Gallos Blancos.

With Villa leading the charge, let's take a look at Liga MX's Best XI from Week 6:

Jonathan Orozco, GK, Monterrey

Although he couldn't do much to stop the late equalizer...

'Tuca' deserves his El Tri shot, Pachuca going crazy: what we learned

Chivas boss Jose Manuel
Ricardo 'Tuca' Ferretti, right, has proven to be very effective at his Tigres post.

With another week of the Liga MX Apertura 2015 season in the books, there are important lessons to be learned.

Here are five of the main ones:

1. "Tuca" deserves his shot

Yes, Ricardo Ferretti is an emotional coach. So those hoping for occasional outbursts are not likely to be disappointed by the veteran as he begins his stint as Mexico national team coach. But he has also proven to be very effective at his job.

The latest example came in a Tigres game which seemed an unlikely spot for them to consolidate...

Pumas are Apertura title contenders with Britos, Martinez and Sosa

Fidel Martinez was on target as Pumas' fine season continued with a 2-0 win over Dorados on Sunday.

When you think of Apertura title contenders, a few suspects come to mind -- America, Tigres and Leon -- but it's time Pumas gets some recognition.

After winning the Clausura title in 2011, the Mexico City squad has failed to make much of an impact in the league in recent seasons. During the past few years, Los Felinos have tended to be average, generally finishing the regular season in midtable and exiting the playoffs in the first round.

But in the 2015 Apertura, they have already gained 12 points...
