MEXICO CITY, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- Club America maintained their advantage at the top of Mexico's Liga MX on Saturday with a 2-1 home victory over Guadalajara.

Henry Martin put the hosts ahead by converting a fourth-minute penalty and Alejandro Zendejas doubled the lead with a 51st-minute strike.

Cristian Calderon pulled a goal back for the visitors just after the hour mark but Fernando Ortiz's men held on to secure their 11th win of the campaign.
