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.

Milton Caraglio is swamped by his Cruz Azul teammates after scoring the winner against Monterrey on Saturday.

Cruz Azul booked its place in the Liga MX 2018 Apertura final with a 1-0 victory over Monterrey on Saturday in Estadio Azteca.

Argentine Milton Caraglio netted the only goal of the game in the 55th minute, with Cruz Azul advancing from the 1-1 aggregate draw due to its higher final position in the Apertura regular season table.

Cruz Azul will host the second leg of the final, likely next Sunday in Estadio Azteca, and will face either Club America or Pumas, who drew 1-1 in their first leg and play...

An early headed goal from Rodolfo Pizarro handed Monterrey a 1-0 victory over Cruz Azul on Wednesday in Estadio BBVA Bancomer in the first leg of the Liga MX 2018 Apertura semifinal.
