MOST COMMENTED

All the favorites advanced in the quarterfinals of Mexico's Torneo Clausura.

Guadalajara and Club America, Mexico's two most popular clubs, will meet in one semifinal, while regular-season leader Pachuca, which edged Santos on the tiebreaker (better regular-season record), meets Cruz Azul in the other semifinal.

Cuauhtemoc Blanco, the Chicago Fire's signee, was the star of the second leg of the quarterfinals, firing two goals for Club America in its 4-1 win over Atlas.

America faces another hectic week on two fronts. It's scheduled to face Santos of Brazil in the first leg of their Libertadores Cup quarterfinals series on Wednesday at Azteca Stadium. The Mexican federation will set the dates and times of the two Clausura semifinal series on Monday morning.
