CONCACAF Club Rankings: April

The superclassico is over and Guadalajara are the victors. No surprise there and they claim the top spot this month: no surprise there either. A look back at last month’s inaugural rankings here.

1. Guadalajara (Mexico)

Last month: 2nd

Cruising in the league and a super classico victory. Does it get any better than that? Cabanas made Chivas sweat though late in the match.

2. Toluca (Mexico)

Last month: 10th

No doubt that Toluca could win the Clausura playoffs at this rate. Who would bet against them?

3. Pachuca (Mexico)

Last month: 1st

Fell behind Chiapas in the league but still very much a factor and yet another chance for international glory

4- Santos Laguna (Mexico)

Last month: 9th

Vicente Vuoso is yet another reason why the Mexican League is arguably better than the Argentine league

5- Saprissa (Costa Rica)

Last month: 7th

Saprissa once again destroyed a team from the United States, and is in command in the domestic league.

6- San Luis (Mexico)

Last month: NR

San Luis could actually be the best team in the world with an American National team pool player (Michael Orozco)

7- DC United (USA)

Last month: 8

A terrible start in the league for the Black and Red, but the play of Marcello Gallardo versus Pachuca was electrifying and considering how much parity reigns in MLS (outside of the LA Galaxy and San Jose), this team will almost certainly push for the Supporters Shield again.

8- Chiapas (Mexico)

Last month: NR

Chivas refugee Adolfo Bautista has been a great addition for this club.

9- Atlante

Last month: 4

Poor play at home in the Yucatan and a crushing defeat at Saprissa in the Champions Cup is more of what we expected coming into the year after the move from Mexico City.

10. Alajuelense (Costa Rica)

Last month: NR

Once again applying the pressure to Saprissa in the Clausura.

Dropped out: America,  Cruz Azul

Knocking on the door:

Cruz Azul (Mexico), Nexaca (Mexico), Olimpia (Honduras),  Marathon (Honduras), Chicago Fire (USA), Colorado Rapids (USA)
