Template:Infobox soccer derby The Clásico Joven (English:The Juvenile Classic) is a soccer rivalry disputed between two of the four most popular clubs in Mexico:[1] Club América and Cruz Azul. Both teams play in Mexico City, even though Cruz Azul originated out of Jasso, Hidalgo.

The first match among both teams was on 30 August 1964 in the stadium 10 de Diciembre, América won the match 2-1 with goals by Marín Ibarreche and Alfonso Portugal, Hilario Díaz scored for the "cementeros".[2] However, the clásico truly began on 9 July 1972 when both teams played against each other in the final during the 1971-72 season, where the "cementeros" easily defeated América 4-1.[3]

History[edit]

Clásico Joven Club América vs Cruz Azul en el Estadio Azteca

After Cruz Azul would win the title in the Segunda División de México during the season 1963-64 and was able to gain promotion into top flight football, they would face América during week 13 on 30 August 1964 in the stadium 10 de Diciembre where the score ended 2-1 with a victory for the "azulcrema". In just a couple of years had important wins and in 1971 they decided to move to Mexico City and play at Estadio Azteca, actual stadium of América.[2] Years later these club had great matches in which Cruz Azul became the team of the 1970s, where they earned the nickname"La Maquina", and América the best of the 1980s.

This rivalry became a true derby during the season 1971-72 where the teams played each other in the final and the "cementeros" came out with a convincing victory of 4-1,[2] this result hit hard for the Americanistas since Cruz Azul also knocked them out of Copa México the same season.

América were able to redeem some dignity in Copa México 1973 where they were able to defeat Cruz Azul in an aggregate score of 3-2 with two goals by Osvaldo "Pata Bendita" Castro and one by Roberto Hodge. But the most significant rematch for América was the final during the season 1988-89, where "las Águilas" rose to victory with a first leg score of 3-2 and second leg score of 2-2 which the aggregate score came to be 5-4 with a decisive goal by Carlos Hermosillo who years later would be considered an idol for the "Celestes" winning three Goalscoring titles during the years 1993-1996.
