MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - America beat UANL Tigres 3-0 in the second leg of the Apertura championship final at the Azteca to win a record 12th Mexican league title 3-1 on aggregate on Sunday.

It was the perfect way for the Eagles' Argentine coach Antonio Mohamed to bow out after confirming on Saturday he was leaving the club after news leaked midweek they were lining up Uruguayan Gustavo Matosas his successor.

Ecuador's Michael Arroyo, Paraguayan central defender Pablo Aguilar and Mexico striker Oribe Peralta scored the goals that dashed Tigres' dreams of a fourth title after winning the first leg 1-0 at home in Nuevo Leon on Thursday.

America have won one more title than arch-rivals Guadalajara.
