It is a little too early to start with predictions for the quarterfinal seedings,although we do already have a major potential upset on the cards: defending champ, six-time regional tournament winner and three-time CCL finalist, Cruz Azul is no longer in control of its destiny in Group 6, after losing to Chorrillo FC in Panama.

Saprissa Hates Club America More

Sideline Views at related • 0 views
Here's my wrap-up on how Club America took care of bidness against Saprissa in Costa Rica.

I've been to the Monster's Cave, back when I lived in Costa Rica during part of my college years. It's a concrete cave of a stadium, but I always thought of it as small. I mean, I've been to Azteca, which is huge.

What's wrong, America?

Sideline Views at related • 0 views
It's surprising that Club America isn't at the top of the table after spending five months there. It's also interesting that the team brought in excellent attacking players, yet those players haven't been able to score in the past two games. It's also weird that not a single player on the defending champions made theLiga MX Best XI.

Early Loss for Matosas

There's nothing unusual about a Gustavo Matosas-coached squad lingering around the middle of the Liga MX table with an equal amount of losses to wins.

But it is weird to see Club America there. For five months straight, the team has been at the top of the Liga MX standings, winning a championship along the way.

This time, Club America came out on top as the defending champions defeated Leon, who didn't even make the playoffs last season to defend their own back-to -back championships from the previous seasons.

In college, I played the role of Viola in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and got to say these lines:

I hate ingratitude more in a man than lying, vainness, babbling, drunkenness, or any taint of vice whose strong corruption inhabits our frail blood.
I thought of those lines again while watching Club America win their historic twelfth championship.

What Price a Coach?

I dismissed the first reports of Gustavo Matosas signing as the new coach of Club America because it didn't make sense that any team would undercut a coach in the middle of a playoff run, with just the championship match yet to go.

But more and more, the same news kept showing up, until, though still unverified by the team officially, there was too much smoke for me to pretend there was no fire under the butt of Antonio Mohamed.

In front of his home fans at Estadio Azteca, Miguel Layun put in the performance of a lifetime.

The Club America right back played the kind of game fullbacks dream of, scoring all four goals in America's 4-1 romp over Santos Laguna. While three of the four came from inside the box, Layun's second was a sensational 45-yard chip on a first-touch half-volley with the goalkeeper way off his line.
