For the first time in the 2021 Guardians there were no scoreless games and Chivas concluded matchday five by defeating the current champions Club Léon on Monday night. The team from Guadalajara obtained their first three points of the tournament and they sit in eleventh place with a record of 1-2-2.

Matchday five saw the most goals of the tournament so far and Club León saw their first defeat at home for the first time in over a year. Also no one was expecting that there would be a triple tie for first place with Toluca (first), Monterrey (second) and Club América (third) all picking up 10 points in five games.

América has room for improvement

Santiago Solari was appointed as Club América’s new head coach for the 2021 Guardianes tournament and so far his record is 3-1-1. The team is still adapting to their new head coach's style of playing and the results are proof of that. América have struggled to win, but they have shown to be effective when it comes to managing the games when they have the lead.

Cruz Azul has been a pleasant surprise

After a very disappointing 2020 Guardianes tournament that led the bosses to part ways with Robert Dante Siboldi, Cruz Azul has a record of 3-0-2 and are in fourth place with nine points. Juan Reynoso took the head coach job for this tournament and the team seems to have recovered their confidence and will make a run for the title that they haven’t won since 1997.
