The 2013/14 edition of the CONCACAF Champion's League (CCL) has brought with it a unique, never before seen match-up. It has the ingredients of an international "Mexico vs USA" rivalry or "Liga MX vs MLS" rivalry. But it also contains a bit of a local derby feel to it due to the proximity of both clubs to each other; both stadiums a separated by a mere 130 miles. 

Four time MLS Cup winners LA Galaxy face the Liga MX Apertura 2013 champion Club Tijuana. Soccerly's own Jonny Rico and Bryan Medina debate who has the stronger team in this international battle of the Californians. They will go line by line to analyze who has the strongest goalkeeper, defense, midfield, and attack.

The Xoloitzcuintles of Tijuana started the Clausuara 2014 tournament with an away tie against Atlas of Guadalajara. What was supposed to be the most exciting match of the first round in Liga MX turned out to be a scoreless draw that didn't make Cesar Farias look good in his official debut as the Xolos manager.

Cristian Pellerano and the Xolos family also had an extra motive to desire the win on the first Liga MX date. Hernan Pellerano, brother of Cristian, had his official debut with the Mexican club, making it the first time that two foreign brothers play on the same team in the Mexican league.

Cirilo Saucedo cemented himself as the protagonist of the match when he blocked a weak penalty on the 29th minute of play. Javier Gandolfi was responsible for the foul against Arturo Gonzalez inside Tijuana's area but Edson Rivera's shot to the lower-right post was too predictable and simple enough for Saucedo to slap the ball away from imminent danger.
