Liga MX: Week 13 Roundup

With only a few weeks remaining in the season, Liga MX teams are fighting for their desired playoff spot. We have many teams within a point of each other, setting up some very dramatic games ahead.

Here is how week 13 went…

 

Club América 0, Tijuana Xolos 0

It was a hard fought battle between these two on Friday night, but no one could score the ultimate winner. Full game recap can be found here.

 

Atlas 4, Querétaro 1

Two early first half goals put Atlas in a pretty position. Querétaro was simply outclassed on the field, giving up two goals in each half, only to net one of their own very late in the game.

 

Morelia 1, Cruz Azul 1

A 30th minute goal looked to be enough for Cruz Azul, however, Raúl Ruidíaz put one in the back of the net for Morelia in the 88th minute, saving the road side at least a point in the match.

 

Monterrey 4, Chiapas 1

Two late first half goals set up Monterrey well for the second half, although giving up a goal, Aldo de Nigris scored a late one to give the home side a three goal win.

 

Club León 4, Veracruz 0

They have been one of the worst teams in Liga MX all season long, but Club León put a beatdown on Veracruz on Saturday. Four goals were scored from the 73rd minute on, in a bizarre showdown on Saturday evening.

 

Tigres 1, Necaxa 1

An early goal in the 16th minute by Fransisco Meza put Tigres up early. Yet, a goal by Jairo González in the 41st minute leveled the game. Neither team were able to find another goal, setting up the draw.

 

Chivas 3, Puebla 2

It was probably the most exciting match of the weekend between Chivas and Puebla. Puebla scored two first half goals to take a lead over Chivas, but Chivas managed to fight back. It was in the 90th minute when Carlos Fierro stole the ball away from Puebla’s keeper, and scored the game winner.

 

Toluca 1, Pumas 0

A goal in the 27th minute by Carlos Esquivel was enough for Toluca to walk away with a victory on the road, despite being outshot 17-2, and out possessed 68-32.

 

Santos Laguna 1, Pachuca 0

A goal from Djaniny in the 40th proved to be the game winner, although Santos Laguna took a whopping 28 shots in the game, compared to 8 from Pachuca.
