[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jose Torres' Tigres won the Liga MX regular-season title with a 2-0 victory over city rival Monterrey that would have knocked the Rayados out of the playoffs but for a technicality in the league rules.

Torres started for Tigres while Texan teenager Alonso Hernandez played the second half for Monterrey, which advanced in place of Queretaro, which was barred from advancing to the playoffs because it has been relegated. (Mexican relegation is based on average points per game over three seasons.) Tigres will meet No. 8 seed Monterrey in the Liga MX quarterfinals. which begin Wednesday.

Alejandro Bedoya continued his hot streak with another goal for Swedish club Helsingborg, while Andrew Wooten's two goals for Sandhausen gave him seven for the season in Germany's 2. Bundesliga.

-- Clint Dempsey started for Tottenham in its 1-0 win over Southampton that kept it in the hunt for a top four place in the English Premier League. Spurs is two points behind Arsenal with a makeup game at third-place Chelsea to play on Wednesday.

-- Tim Ream got a rare start and Stuart Holden came off the bench in Bolton Wanderers' 2-2 tie with Blackpool that was not enough to send it into the English League Championship promotion playoffs.
