Campeón de Campeones: Tigres UANL vs Chivas de Guadalajara – Recap and Highlights

Tigres UANL claimed the “champion of champions” title with a 1-0 victory over Chivas de Guadalajara at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

El Rebaño suffered a further setback in the 27th minute when both Oswaldo Alanís and José Juan Vázquez had to leave the field with injuries.

Campeón de Campeones: América vs Santos Laguna

campeon de campeonesIn the 2015 Campeón de Campeones game between the last two Liga MX champions, Santos Laguna took down América 1-0 in Frisco, Texas.

The lone goal of the game came early on in an ill-tempered affair that featured a good deal of fouls, pushing and shoving, and yellow cards. In the 15th minute, Osmar Mares appeared to trip Djaniny in the area, and referee Leszek Stalmach pointed to the penalty spot.

Néstor Calderón stepped up to take the PK, and he sent Hugo González the wrong way, burying the spot kick to make it 1-0 for Santos Laguna.

América attempted to respond after falling behind, with Andrés Andrade, Rubens Sambueza, and Carlos Darwin Quintero all making Santos keeper Agustín Marchesín work at one time or another.

However, the Águilas could not get past Marchesín, and it was difficult for either team to establish a good rhythm with the game interrupted time and again because of fouls and confrontations. The heat in Frisco also led to the game being stopped once in each half to allow the players to hydrate.

In the end, despite América pressing right until the final whistle in the 96th minute, Calderón’s lone goal stood up as Santos was proclaimed the “Champion of Champions”.

América: Hugo González, Gil Burón, Erik Pimentel, Omar Mares, Miguel Samudio (José Daniel Guerrero 75′), Javier Güemez, Osvaldo Martínez (Francisco Rivera 70′), Andrés Andrade, Rubens Sambueza, Carlos Darwin Quintero (Alejandro Díaz 46′), Micheal Arroyo.
