Top Stories of Week Six

We're now into second third of the Liga MX Clausura, and this week brought some surprises and note-worthy events. Here's Kim Tate's top moments in Liga MX for week six.


Chivas pull off first away win in exactly one year 

Chivas haven't impressed in quite some time and even today's 1-0 win wasn't the most attractive, but former Monterrey striker Aldo De Nigris was able to get them three points with his 52nd minute golazo at Estadio Cuauhtémoc against Puebla. It also marks exactly one year since Los Rojiblancos have won a single game on the road. Now that their winless-on-the-road streak is behind them (side note - did anyone ever predict that Chivas would get over this feat quicker than Tijuana?), they'll want to focus on scoring more than one goal per game - something they haven't done since September 15, 2013. 


Pumas win three straight

At this time during the 2013 Apertura, Pumas were winless with a 0-3-3 record. After some new signings in the offseason (Daniel Ludueña has been a much needed addition), Pumas have come back and put on a decent show with promise to finish in a better position than bottom three. In their last three games, they've beaten Tigres 2-1, Tijuana 3-0, and now Leon 2-1. 


Brizuela making a name for himself

The San Jose, CA-born Mexican American has been a big part of Toluca's midfield. He recently played a part in a goal scored for El Tri against South Korea and scored on Sunday for Toluca, helping his team nab three points in a 1-0 victory against Chiapas. He's only 23 years old and will continue to develop and impress. Keep an eye on him - Piojo Herrera certainly has been. 



Xolos come back to beat Monterrey and remain undefeated at Estadio Caliente

While their road form continues to leave them winless away from Tijuana, Xolos still find a way to collect points at home. Week six saw them come back from a 1-0 deficit to defeat Monterrey 2-1. The return of Argentine-Italian Dario Benedetto has been beneficial for them - he scored the equalizer only minutes after subbing on for Herculez Gomez. He then played a part in the second goal and winner by Cristian Pellerano.


Marco Fabián and Cruz Azul 

A move from Chivas to Cruz Azul has proven beneficial for both player and club, according to Cruz Azul's top place in the Liga MX table as the only standing team with zero losses, and Fabián's performance as of late. He scored two on Sunday against Atlante, and his form in the last few weeks proves that he's responding well to new coach Luis Fernando Tena. The attacking midfielder from Guadalajara has scored three goals and gets credit for an assist in five games so far in six weeks, opposed to three goals in all of the 2013 Apertura with Chivas. Keep this up, and Cruz Azul -with Fabian-will be definite title contenders.
