Hi, I’m Manu! Hosting sport fans from around the world in my home town MX City is my true passion and no match has more passion than the Mexico City Derby.
“El clásico joven” was established on July of 1972, between the capital teams Cruz Azul & America. Club America founded in october 1916, now owned by the magnate Emilio Azcarraga, and founding member of the Mexican league from 1923 is perhaps the most popular team in the country holding 13 league titles in his record. They are better know as “Las Aguilas” or “Los Cremas”. In the other hand, Cruz Azul, founded in 1927 & owned by a workers cooperative from a Cement manufacturer, won its promotion to the 1st division in 1946 holding 9 league titles so far on the 1st division. They are known as “La Maquina” or “Los Cementeros” & hold also a tremendous base of fans. Both teams are members of the select club of “Los 4 grandes” (The big 4) in México.
The best comparison to understand this derby would be the “Madrid Derby”. In one hand we have the most decorated club in México; Club America. And in the other we have a Big & successful club; Cruz Azul with great international recognition, but not as popular as the 1st. Much like Atleti to Real Madrid (saving the proper dimensions). Both of the teams have had golden eras, Cruz Azul on the 70´s & America on the 80´s.
“El clásico joven” was founded on dramatic finals. The 1971-72 final will forever be remembered for the manner in which Cruz Azul dismantled America in a blow out 4-1.
America & Cruz Azul met again in the 1988-1989 final, which went down to the wire with America winning by an aggregate score of 5-4.
And in perhaps the best final of this derby, during the dying minutes of the 2013 closure final, the goalkeeper Moises Muñoz scored to force the extra time & then in penalty kicks America won it´s 10th league title.
While it is called the Young Derby, the truth is Cruz Azul vs America, has become one of the biggest rivalries in the country. Last years have been exciting. “Los cementeros” won´t let America forget the 5-2 on 2019. & “Las Aguilas” will never let Cruz Azul forget the final on 2013.
America stands for glory, recognition & winning mentality.
Cruz Azul represents hard work, perseverance & loyalty.
Now you have the opportunity to take part of the #186 edition on August 20th when Club América will face Cruz Azul as local in historic Estadio Azteca on a match which none of the teams can lose!!! [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
