América beat Querétaro by the minimum difference to remain unbeaten at home this season. The result also gives the Águilas back-to-back wins and keeps them unbeaten in seven overall, while extending the Gallos Blancos’ losing streak to four games.
The hosts took the initiative from the opening whistle and they found chances in the early going, primarily through Oribe Peralta. But it wasn’t until just before halftime that América was able to open the scoring.
A late goal gave América a 1-0 win against Necaxa on Wednesday night. The result keeps the Águilas unbeaten at home this season and unbeaten in six overall while the Rayos remain winless in seven.
The visitors had the first good chance of the game in the 10th minute, when Marcos González forced a good save out of Agustín Marchesín to keep the game goalless. After that, the game slowed down and there were few chances of note at either end for the rest of the first half.
It was honors even in the Estadio Caliente as Tijuana and América settled for a 0-0 draw. The result is a third straight draw for the Xolos, who are now winless in four, while the Águilas remain unbeaten in five.
The game started slowly. América, missing a number of players due to injury or suspension, came out looking to play for the draw. Tijuana’s usual high-flying attack – the highest scoring in the league – was missing its usual spark, and there were almost no chances to speak of in the first half.
América remained unbeaten at home this season with a 1-0 victory over Monterrey. The loss ends a two-game winning streak for the Rayados and keeps them winless on the road in four.
The first half was a largely even affair. Monterrey had the first chance in the 11th minute, but Agustín Marchesín sent Dorlan Pabon’s effort out for a corner kick. América then had a chance through Michael Arroyo in the 22nd minute, but after getting past César Montes he couldn’t beat Hugo González, who made the save.
América let a two-goal lead slip, but a late goal by Cecilio Domínguez gave the Águilas a 2-3 victory against Pumas UNAM. The result keeps América unbeaten in three while Pumas suffered their first home loss of the season.
The universitarios started the game off better as they looked to take advantage of América’s absentees, as well as the forced substitution of the injured Miguel Samudio. In the 18th minute, they nearly opened the scoring when Jesús Gallardo found an open Nicolás Castillo, but he couldn’t put his shot on frame.
Tijuana beat América by the minimum difference in the Copa MX round of sixteen.
The hosts took the initiative from the opening whistle and the Xolos dominated possession and chances. After spending much of the game in América’s defensive third, Tijuana found the breakthrough in the 28th minute.
Guido Rodríguez played in Paul Arriola, who sent his low shot past Agustín Marchesín to make it 1-0.
León took the lead but couldn’t hold it as they drew 1-1 with América. The result leaves León winless in seven while the Águilas are now unbeaten in two.
León hit the crossbar in the 8th minute, but it was an injury rather than a goal-scoring opportunity that drew attention in the first half. In the 18th minute, Renato Ibarra was on the receiving end of a hard tackle by Andrés Andrade that led to the Ecuadorian leaving the stadium in an ambulance. América later confirmed on social media that Ibarra had suffered a fractured fibula.
In the Clausura 2017 edition of the Clásico Joven, América earned a 2-0 victory over 10-man Cruz Azul. The result ends a three-game winless streak for the Águilas, while La Máquina are now winless in seven.
The game started off at a good pace, with both teams attacking, but it was the hosts who took the lead. In the 28th minute, Oribe Peralta got behind the defense and headed the ball home to make it 1-0. Peralta has now scored in five consecutive games against Cruz Azul.
The Disciplinary Committee has suspended one player, one coach, and opened two investigations in the aftermath of last weekend’s Jornada 7 games.
The two suspensions both went to Club América, with player Miguel Ángel Samudio given a one-game suspension for violent conduct and coach Ricardo La Volpe given his own one-game suspension for entering the playing field.
Chivas de Guadalajara earned bragging rights in the Clausura 2017 edition of the SuperClásico with a 1-0 victory over América. The win is a second consecutive one for Chivas and keeps them unbeaten in four, while the Águilas are now winless in three in league play.
The visitors took the ball early on and Michael Arroyo tried to jump start their attack with some good crosses into the box, but no one could get on the end of them. It took Chivas more time to settle into the game, but bit by bit they began to take control – and once they had it, they never relinquished it.
