Puebla is the Copa MX champion‏

· With a final score of 4-2, Puebla snatches the championship from Guadalajara

· Cuauhtémoc Blanco bids farewell to Mexican soccer with a championship win

· Puebla F.C. continues its struggle to reach the Liga MX Liguilla playoffs

 Puebla F.C became the 2015 Copa MX Torneo Clausura champion last night at Estado Universitario BUAP in the capital of the Mexican state of Puebla after defeating C.D. Guadalajara 4-2 in the final match of the tournament.

Copa México, better known as Copa MX, is a professional soccer tournament in Mexico featuring teams from both the top-level Mexican soccer league as well as the second-level Ascenso MX league.  The final match determining the winner of the 2015 Clausura tournament was played last night between Puebla and Guadalajara.

It was an epic close to the Copa MX tournament.  Puebla scored first when Facundo Erpen headed in a goal seven minutes into the match.

A second goal was scored by Luis Gabriel Rey, also with his head, taking the total to 2-0 for Puebla.

After half time, the Chivas Rayadas of Guadalajara responded and the team managed by José Manuel de la Torre tied with a brace from Aldo de Nigris, who scored in the 53rdminute before scoring again a minute later, whipping the fans into a frenzy.

The joy was short-lived for Guadalajara after Matías Alustiza scored with a penalty kick using his left leg.

Another explosive goal by Matías Alustiza sealed Puebla’s victory at 67 minutes, when he broke away from the Chivas defense and kicked in a goal, again with his left foot.

The team managed by José Guadalupe “El Profe” Cruz has won the Copa MX title, and with this championship win, Cuauhtémoc Blanco bids farewell to Mexican soccer. But it still has a way to go before it can win the Liga MX championship.  The Liguilla playoffs are two weeks away and can be enjoyed on Azteca America.

Experience all the excitement and the best Puebla F.C. matches on Azteca America, the Home of Mexican Soccer!
