Liga MX Power Rankings: Cruz Azul still No. 1 as Toluca climbs into second

MEXICO CITY -- The quiet dominance of Toluca over Tijuana last Sunday should come as no surprise to those diligently watching Liga MX -- the Diablos Rojos made the Clausura 2018 championship final amid steady, if under-the-radar play.

After a rocky start, Hernan Cristante's team is nearing the top of Liga MX standings once again. Meanwhile Pumas, an early darling, has begun to plateau at a tough time: it's in for a tough two games this week, including a visit to the Estadio Azteca against rival...

It's early, but Cruz Azul appears to be in the midst of redefining itself

New-look Cruz Azul were impressive against Puebla and will look to make it two from two vs. Chivas.
It's barely four weeks into the season, but Cruz Azul already has a different feel to it.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- The season's first four games don't provide enough of a sample size to make a definitive judgment on Cruz Azul's season, but they can offer hints that a once-insecure team with a habit of falling apart at the wrong time is turning things around. A valiant away draw at Tijuana's always-difficult pitch, earned with only 10 men from the 22nd minute on, made it clear that Cruz Azul is ready to move on from its recent period of uncertainty.

Any conclusions at this point would be...

Liga MX Power Rankings: Cruz Azul stays top, Toluca jumps into top five

MEXICO CITY -- The race at the top of Liga MX is tightening after four weeks of play. Club America soundly defeated Monterrey at the Azteca and took its place in the league table. Cruz Azul and Pumas were unable to continue their perfect starts, drawing against Tijuana and Pachuca respectively.

Moving into Week 5, seven teams are in striking distance for a potential first-place spot at the end of the weekend. Here are the Power Rankings after the most recent week of play:



Is Cruz Azul's Pedro Caixinha being slept on as a candidate for the Mexico national team job?

Could Pedro Caixinha be the next boss for El Tri?
Would Cruz Azul's Pedro Caixinha make a good Mexico manager?

Are we overlooking a certain Liga MX-based manager when it comes to the Mexico national team coach's job?

The name Pedro Caixinha was mentioned all over the media back in 2015 before Juan Carlos Osorio was confirmed as El Tri's permanent coach. The Portuguese manager appeared keen back then, even if this time around he appears to be more nuanced in his enthusiasm.

"I think that in Mexico there is a great tradition of [picking] the coach that is in fashion, that is winning or has won," stated...

Pablo Aguilar the biggest key to Cruz Azul's hot start, massive turnaround

Cruz Azul are unbeaten through three games and new signing Pablo Aguilar (right) is a major reason why.
Unbeaten through three games, revamped Cruz Azul are looking like serious Liga MX title contenders.

In recent weeks, there has been no shortage of excitement when it comes to Cruz Azul.

Under the new era of sporting director Ricardo Pelaez, La Maquina has quickly transformed into one of the most dominant teams in Mexican soccer. After kicking off the season with three wins in three matches, recent signings such as Elias Hernandez and Roberto Alvarado have gained plenty of praise for what they have been able to provide in the attack.

All that said, no newcomer has been more important to Cruz Azul...
