It was another exciting weekend of Liga MX action. We saw some comebacks, high scoring matches, and some shocking results.
Take a look at how the teams did…
Tijuana Xolos 6, Puebla 2
This was the goal-fest of the weekend, and it started at only the 4th minute of play when Aviles Hurtado got on the board for Xolos. Puebla managed to equalize twice in the match, but Xolos ran away in the 61st minute and never looked back.
Querétaro 0, Morelia 0
After an eight goal match to kick off the week, things slowed down with Querétaro and Morelia. Despite 17 shots in the game, Morelia’s dominance on the ball couldn’t get them the three points.
Monterrey 2, Chivas 2
Bringing fans one of the most exciting games of the weekend, Chivas and Monterrey certainly did not disappoint. Chivas snagged a two goal lead going into half thanks to Rodolfo Pizarro and Edwin Hernández. Yet, two red cards would end up plaguing Chivas in this match. Monterrey pulled back, as Rogelio Funes Mori scored in the 56th minute. Fifteen minutes later, Dorlan Pabón scored the equalizer for the home team from long range.
Atlas 2, Tigres 0
This week’s shocker comes thanks to Atlas and an endearing game against Tigres. Thanks to an own-goal, Atlas took a one goal lead, but in the 71st minute, Matias Alustiza scored the dagger against the reigning champions.
Pachuca 1, Chiapas 0
Despite a whopping 40 shots between the teams, Pachuca was the only one to score in this game, and it came from a 42nd minute goal by Ruben Botta. It doesn’t have to be pretty, however, as Pachuca have six points after week 2.
Club León 1, Necaxa 0
In a back and forth game, it was Club León who got the better in this duel, and it was none other than Carlos Peña with the game winner in the 85th minute. The midfielder is returning to his home tem after a stint with Chivas.
Toluca 2, Club América 1
Sunday’s most intriguing game came to us thanks to Ruben Sambueza facing off against his former club, Club América for the first time. However, it was two beautiful golazo’s that stole the show for Toluca, securing the three points against their rivals.
Pumas 1, Cruz Azul 0
It was a chippy match between the two near-home rivals (34 total fouls), but the victors would be the home side thanks to a 61st minute goal from Nicolas Castillo.
Santos Laguna 2, Veracruz 1
Wrapping up the weekend was an exciting face-off in Coahuila, México. Jonathan Rodríguez got the home team up early in the 4th minute, but it didn’t last long. Eduardo Herrera brought the game level in the 16th minute, yet, it was Rodríguez who scored the eventual game winner in the 77th minute.
