Santos Laguna storms into Liga MX Clausura final with upset of Club America

MEXICO CITY -- If only briefly, it appeared as if the Estadio Azteca was working its magic once more.

Two quick goals from Cecilio Dominguez and Bruno Valdez had Club America on the brink of an epic comeback just 23 minutes in, after a 4-1 loss in the first leg of the Liga MX semifinals necessitated a 3-0 win from the 12-time league champions. Echoes of Club America's late comeback against Cruz Azul in the Clausura 2013 finals rang through the fabled Mexico City soccer cathedral when Dominguez jammed...

Djaniny Tavares' fitness could go some way to deciding Santos' semifinal vs. America.

MEXICO CITY -- There are two teams from the northern part of Mexico still vying to take home the Clausura 2018 title. They're just not who most people were expecting.

Both Monterrey teams and Apertura 2017 finalists in December, Tigres and Rayados, were stunningly eliminated in the liguilla quarterfinals. The former were knocked off by Santos Laguna, a team that had started off hot in the regular season only to cool off towards the end -- a cardinal sin for odds makers in Mexico's unpredictable...
