Struggling Chivas to get painful reminder of past glories vs. Cruz Azul

Cruz Azul's 'Maza' Rodriguez, right, will clash with his former club on Saturday.

No Chivas fan of a certain age could forget Francisco "Maza" Rodriguez's looping header in the Apertura 2006 final second leg in the Estadio Nemesio Diez.

The goal equalized the aggregate score against Toluca, laying the foundation for Adolfo "Bofo" Bautista's heroics to win Chivas' 11th title and spark celebrations that lasted not just into the December night, but for days.

Back then, the future was bright for Chivas. Club owner Jorge Vergara had come good on his promise to bring a title to the...

Kannemann's brilliance, referee scrutiny headline Liga MX week five

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains Ronaldinho has become more a luxury player in the latter stages of his career rather than a first-team focal point, following the news that Queretaro coaches created a special training program for the Brazilian.

1. Cruz Azul's defense holds strong

A center-back pairing of Francisco "Maza" Rodriguez and Julio Cesar "Cata" Dominguez, combined with Gerardo Torrado's screening in a holding role just in front of the pair, plus Jesus Corona's exploits in goal, screams solidity and experience for Cruz Azul.

So far this Clausura, those features have been on display in bucket-loads, with La Maquina yet to concede a goal in 450 minutes of play. The water-tight defense has helped Cruz Azul move to first place...

Cruz Azul's stifling defense masks a lack of goals as they sit atop Liga MX

Cruz Azul did win this weekend to go top of Liga MX but they are a difficult, sometimes boring, team to watch.

I would be lying if I were to say that watching Cruz Azul has been fun this season. Despite the fact that manager Luis Fernando Tena has lead the team to an unbeaten start to the 2015 Clausura, it has all been very uneventful to watch -- especially in attack.

After the injury to Paraguayan striker Roque Santa Cruz against Santos Laguna last month, the club has struggled to create and convert their attacking opportunities. Brazilian Jose Carlos Toffolo (or "Alemao") has taken Santa Cruz's place...

Five Liga MX matches to watch on opening weekend

Will former Premier League and La Liga star Roque Santa Cruz have an impact in Liga MX with Cruz Azul?

After a short winter break, the Liga MX will resume Friday with the start of the 2015 Clausura. So get ready for another few months of dramatic matches and battles -- here are five games to watch during the opening weekend of the new season.

1. America vs. Leon

What better way for Gustavo Matosas to start his tenure at America than to take on the last club he coached?

The match will be a big opportunity not only for Matosas, but for the club as a whole. Anything less than a title this season...

Malaga striker Roque Santa Cruz set for Cruz Azul switch

Roque Santa Cruz has confirmed he is close to leaving Malaga.

Malaga striker Roque Santa Cruz is set to complete a move to Mexican side Cruz Azul.

The Paraguay international arrived in Mexico early on Tuesday morning and is expected to sign a two-year contract with the club.

The 33-year-old joined Malaga, initially on loan, from Manchester City in 2012 but is now set to leave Europe 15 years after his arrival at Bayern Munich.

The EFE news agency quoted Santa Cruz as telling Mexican media that the "negotiation is well advanced" and that his presence suggests...
