El Clásico de Clásicos (English: The Classic of Classics), also known as El Clásico (English: The Classic), and El Súper Clásico (English: The Super Classic), is an association football match between Mexican clubs América and Guadalajara. It is considered the biggest rivalry in Mexican football. Both teams share the distinction of being the two most successful Mexican football clubs with both América and Guadalajara holding 11 titles.

History[edit]

The first confrontation between what are considered the two most popular teams in Mexico[1] ended with a victory for Guadalajara with a score of 1–0.[2] The rivalry began to flourish after the second match, when América defeated Guadalajara with a score of 7–2. Although the huge defeat sparked embarrassment within the ranks of Chivas, it was almost two decades before the rivalry became the Clásico that is known today. Initially, América was struggling in the Mexican League. Halfway through the 1957–58 tournament, América had only managed to win six points, placing them in last place in the overall standings. In danger of finishing lower in the standings, the club hired Fernando Marcos, a retired player and referee. By the 1958–59 tournament, Marcos had transformed the team into a contender for the title. Although América's level rose, Chivas was playing tactical football that was giving them good results. After the 1957–1958 tournament, in which Club Zacatepec was crowned champions, Chivas managed to win a record four consecutive titles.

The late 1950s through the mid-1960s could be considered the best era in Chivas' history. During this time period, Chivas won the majority (7) of their eleven league titles, only interrupted twice in 1958 and 1963, by Zacatepec and Club Deportivo Oro respectively. Although América, or any other Mexican club for that matter, never achieved the same success in such a short period of time, an equally impressive feat is achieved much later by América.

Mexican football had drastically evolved by the 1980s. The period of football domination between two teams was certainly over. Although absolute parity is never achievable, competition was more evenly distributed throughout the football clubs competing in the Mexican First Division. The 1980s is perhaps the best decade in Club América's history. Up until then, no other club had managed the incredible success of Chivas. During this time period, América won five titles in the course of five years. First, starting in 1984, a series of three consecutive titles, followed by two consecutive titles starting in 1988. América achieved what no other team has achieved in present-era Mexican football. Despite consistency from both Chivas and América, after América's glorious years and long after Chivas' golden age, the two teams have only managed to win four titles between them, two apiece.

Riot of 1983[edit]

In the second leg of the semi-finals of the 1982–83 season, players of both two teams sparked a brawl better known as "La Bronca del '83" ("The Riot of '83"), which resulted in Chivas going onto play Puebla in the final by eliminating América during that playoff.

The following season América would get to play Chivas once again in the 1983–1984 final in which América came from behind on aggregate to defeat Chivas in to date the only final disputed between the two teams.

In between the seasons of 1983 through the year 2000, América showed dominance over Chivas recording an impressive record of only 6 losses out of 43 matches against Chivas.

2000s[edit]

One of the most memorable games played between Chivas and América during the Clausura 2005 tournament took place on 13 March in the Estadio Azteca. The game started with a goal by Pável Pardo at the 15th minute of the game. América would then attempt to solidify its hold on the game when, in the 38th minute, Óscar Rojas scored the second goal, capitalizing on a pass from Cuauhtémoc Blanco. During the 42nd minute of the game, with the first half about to conclude, Héctor Reynoso scored one of the most beautiful goals of his career, making the score 2–1. Francisco Palencia would score the 100th goal of his career in the 58th minute, tying the score 2–2. But América would again take the lead when, at the 78th minute, Pável Pardo made an excellent pass to Claudio López who didn't waste the opportunity to penetrate the goal tended by Oswaldo Sánchez. However, things wouldn't end there. Three minutes before the game ended, Palencia would make his 101st goal as a result of a magnificent play involving Ramón Morales and Alberto Medina. The score was tied 3–3 although Chivas attempted yet another goal that came from Palencia.

In 2007, America set the record for most wins in a year by defeating Chivas four times.

Gonzalez was a former footballer in real life, having been a goalkeeper for Club León before switching to comedy.
