CopaMX:
The portent
of two champioinships.

Copa MX

The team grew under the hand of Matías Almeyda, it's the gift that keeps giving. Winning the Copa MX of CL2017 was a proof of all that we have walked in the right direction. We won the Cup for the second time since Almeyda came, we did it after almost 20 years of no titles in our home, without losing a single game. That was the fuel for the LigaMX Title.

The battle begins:
win or die

Liguilla Quarter finals- Chivas Vs. Atlas

We were starting the liguilla, as number three in the general board against our ultimate tapatio enemy in the quarter finals of the Closing Tournament 2017. We had to gain leverage on the score to move forward to the Tile of the LigaMX, closing home. Defeating Atlas would be a great spirit boost, to achieve the star number 12.
