Chivas de Guadalajara beat Tigres UANL 2-1 (4-3 aggregate) to win the Clausura 2017 league title.
El Rebaño entered the Liguilla as the third seed, and they defeated sixth-seeded Atlas and fourth-seeded Toluca in the quarter- and semi- finals, respectively, to set up a meeting with seventh-seeded Tigres in the Gran Final.
A 2-2 first leg draw kept everything up in the air for the second leg in the Estadio Chivas, where Alan Pulido and José Juan Vázquez gave the hosts the aggregate lead.
The Clausura 2017 league title is Guadalajara’s 12th – which ties them with rivals América for most titles overall – and their first since the Apertura 2006 season. They also won in the 1956-57, 1958-59, 1959-60, 1960-61, 1961-62, 1963-64, 1964-65, 1969-70, 1986-87, and Verano 1997 seasons.
The Clausura 2017 title is coach Matías Almeyda’s first league title with Chivas and his fourth overall with the club (he also won two Copa MXs and a SuperCopa MX with Guadalajara).
