MEXICAN LEAGUE CLAUSURA
Cruz Azul takes first leg of la Gran Final


CRUZ AZUL 1, AMERICA 0
Christian Gimenez scored off a header in the 19th minute to give Cruz Azul a 1-0 win in their Liguilla Gran Final opener against crosstown rivals Club America Thursday in front of 30,203 at Estadio Azul.

Gimenez spearheaded a spirited Cruz Azul attack from the opening whistle, challenging goalkeeper Moises Munoz in the first minutes. After Gimenez scored the game-winner, the Aguilas pressed hard for an equalizer, only to be thwarted by netminder Jesus Corona, who turned away a point-blank header by Christian Benitez in the 52nd minute and dangerous attempt by Jesus Molina minutes later.

The series wraps up Sunday at Estadio Azteca.
