It may not be Europe and neither Chivas Guadalajara nor Club America will play in the UEFA Champions League next year so some people might not know it, but Mexico's Super Clasico might very well be the world's best rivalry. On Sunday evening in front of a packed Estadio Omnilife, Chivas set the home crowd afire with a scintillating 3-0 win over their hated rivals with none of the goals better than Marco Fabian's that made it 2-0 and largely out of America's reach.
With their win, Chivas is now into second place in group A of the Clausura and in position to make the Liguilla. On the flip side, America's grip on second place in group B is not as stable as it once was. They sit just two points ahead of San Luis and Toluca and Toluca has a match in hand. Even with the important league implications, nobody will remember the Super Clasico for its impact on the table. As always, it will be remembered for its intensity and now, for Fabian's goal.
