History of Club America and Chivas de Guadalajara
Club America was born on October 12, 1916, in Mexico City, when two soccer teams joined forces. They chose the name Club America from Club de Futbol America. The founders were people from the College of Mascarones and the local church, who met on a special day called Columbus Day, or Dia del descubrimiento de America, and created this world-famous club. America is a founding member of the Mexican Primera Division and holds a significant rivalry with Guadalajara.
Rebano Sagrado, or Chivas, is one of the most famous, influential, and successful teams in the Mexican league. The team originates from Guadalajara, the capital city of Jalisco. They compete in the highest division of Mexican football, known as Liga MX. With a history dating back to May 8, 1906, the team has a rich and lengthy heritage. In its 116 years, Guadalajara has won 12 league titles, 4 MX Cups, 7 Champion of Champions trophies, and 2 Concachampions cups. The team was founded by Edgar Everaert, a Belgian man, and Rafael and Gregorio Orozco.
They called it Union Football Club but later changed it to Club Guadalajara. In their first game, they wore white shirts and Rafael Orozco was their coach and president. Everaert suggested adding red stripes to the shirts, inspired by the flag of Bruges in Belgium. The team became known as Guadalajara on February 26, 1908, establishing its identity. Both clubs are very successful and popular, so their matches are called El Super Clasico.
The Club America Vs Chivas rivalry is the most important one in Mexico. Also, Club America plays against Cruz Azul and Club Universidad Nacional, which makes their games even more exciting.
America vs Chivas: History of Wins in the Mexican Classic
Club America crushed their rivals Chivas Guadalajara with an amazing 4-0 win at the Estadio Azteca in the Clasico Nacional on Saturday, September 17th. This win in the Liga MX Apertura moved America to fourth place with 14 points, while Chivas are just behind them with one point less. Chivas have had a bad time lately, losing three games in a row, and this one will hurt them the most.
But let’s look at the bigger picture and explore the history of both teams. Both teams wanted to win the Super Clasico match, as it would help them climb the standings. America has a better record than Chivas overall. They have played 250 times since the 1940s, including 38 friendly matches, and América has won 93 times, while Chivas has won 78 times, and 79 times they have tied. But in their last game, Chivas won with a big score of 4-0.
It is interesting that Chivas has not been able to beat America at Estadio Azteca in regular-season games since 2016, except for their 3-1 win in the Clausura semifinals last May. América has done better than Chivas in important games. In the Mexican league playoffs, the team from Mexico City has won 10 out of the 13 two-legged games against Chivas.
The most famous of these games was the ‘Final of the Century’ in 1983/84. America won 5-3 in total and got their fourth national championship, putting them ahead of Chivas, who have 12 titles. There have been five Súper Clasico games in the semifinal stage of the league playoffs in their history.
Right now, Chivas has an edge in this, as they won 2-0 in total in the Apertura 2016. But America got back at them in the Apertura 10 years before when they won 2-0 in total. The teams have also competed in significant matches such as the Mexican Cup finals in 1954 and 1955, both of which were won by America. They also faced each other in a first-round game of the CONCACAF Champions’ Cup in 1985, with Los Azul-Cremas emerging victorious.
In 1998, the two teams met once again in the Copa Libertadores, as Mexican teams were invited to participate in South America’s most prestigious club tournament for the first time.
