Mexico's National Derby wasn't much of a contest. A match that the entire county stops to observe 2 times a year was a blow out as the visiting team CF America defeated Chivas de Guadalajara by a score of 4-0.
America forward, Luis Gabriel Rey scored in the 9th and 15th minute. Raul Jimenez score in the 56th and Luiz Mendoza in the 71th minute.
The victory was well deserved by the team from Coapa. CF America maximized on their early opportunities. Once they were ahead they knew how to play with the lead, defended soundly and did not complicate things from themselves.
Extending their lead off of counter attacks the way the did was only logical for the most hated team by Mexican soccer fans.
The victory places America in 4th place in the standings, while the defeat drops Chivas to 10th.
Chelsea Boss Mourinho Gives Up On Title Hopes? After losing to Crystal Palace 1-0 on Saturday, Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho declared in his post game commentary that with the loss his side can pretty much forget about any English Premier League championship aspirations. The "Special One" (Mourinho) said, "Now we have lost our chance of finishing first..." he went on, "Now we depend on too many results. When it depends a little it is possible. When it is a lot it isn't." Mourinho concluded, "I know mathematically it is still possible. But one thing is mathematics and one thing is reality. I dont' think it is going to happen.
With 6 games left in the season and only 2 points behind league leader Liverpool, I think this Chelsea side has more chances than Mourinho declares. Mind games on his behalf? Wouldn't surprise me.
