Chivas' winless run reaches 13 after Copa loss

CARLOS RODRIGUEZ Associated Press Published:

MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Chivas hasn't won in 13 matches, and it's unlikely to get better soon for one of Mexico's most famous football brands.

The Guadalajara club was humiliated 3-0 by Velez Sarsfield of Argentina on Wednesday in the Copa Libertadoes, meaning Chivas has failed to win a match in four months and forcing new coach Ignacio Ambriz to simply say that "faith is needed."

Chivas sporting director Rafeal Ortega says new players may have to be signed in the offseason, a change of course for a club that has tried for several seasons to win with young, unproven talent.
