Liga MX Power Rankings: America, Chivas take top early Clausura spots

America continues its good form from last season's championship run but are searching for a scoring threat in the transfer market.

MEXICO CITY -- Let's try something new.

Well, it's not entirely new. Inspired by (but definitely not copied from) ESPN's fantastic treatment of the NFL Power Rankings -- in which a different topic is explored each week -- the improved Liga MX Power Rankings will give great nuggets of content along the way. Here's how it works: a different topic or question is chosen each week and then spread out among the teams, giving you an added twist.

The rankings, however, remain simple. The number one...

Chivas Guadalajara provides blueprint on how to defeat Cruz Azul

Miguel Angel Ponce
Chivas proved that if you set deep and let Cruz Azul have the ball, you can stifle its creativity.

Another wild weekend of the Liga MX 2019 Clausura is in the books. Here are five takes from the second round of matches:

1. Cardozo masterminds Chivas win over Cruz Azul

It's becoming increasingly clear that Cruz Azul has a problem breaking down well-drilled and compact defenses and Saturday saw Chivas coach Jose Cardozo lay down a template of how to defeat Pedro Caixinha's side. Other teams will surely follow suit.

Chivas sat back, let Cruz Azul have the ball (60 percent possession), remained patient...

Cruz Azul has trebled Chivas' spending, and results suggest it's paying off

Orbelin Pineda was Cruz Azul's biggest signing ahead of the Clausura.

To overhaul the squad last season and come out on top over rivals Chivas, Cruz Azul made the decision to invest three times the amount of money, resulting in the Mexico City squad gaining the upper hand on its Pacific coast rivals in Liga MX.

Specifically, Cruz Azul has invested just over $45 million in the past two half-year tournaments. Some 14 players in total have arrived; 11 via acquisitions and three on loans. This change in transfer policy is in large part due to the arrival of Ricardo...

Liga MX W2W4: America kick off title defense without Diego Lainez

It's Week 2 of matches in the Liga MX's 2019 Clausura, at least for most teams. Here's what to watch for in Mexico this weekend:

America makes season debut vs. Atlas

After being granted a break in the first round of matches of the Clausura, Club America's title defense will begin on Friday night against Atlas in Estadio Jalisco, with the sale of Diego Lainez to Real Betis still fresh and the squad incomplete.

The celebrations from winning title number 13 back on Dec. 16 have barely finished for Las...

Monterrey, Chivas kick off Liga MX Clausura with important wins

Luis Madrigal of Monterrey celebrates after scoring the fifth goal of his team
Monterrey got off to a good start in their Clausura campaign.

The opening round of matches of the Liga MX 2019 Clausura came less than three weeks after Club America lifted the Apertura title in Estadio Azteca. With the games coming so soon after the holidays, there was a little bit of a preseason feel to some of the clashes, but some important results and performances nevertheless.

Here are five takes from week one of the Clausura.

Rodriguez, Gonzalez shine as Monterrey makes statement

Monterrey made a lot of noise this transfer window, especially...
