The second week of the new Liga MX season is all but wrapped up and we saw some great matches over the weekend. While some teams got back on track, others failed to walk away with points when they were expected to. Also, new Liga MX signing Landon Donovan should be happy to see what Club León accomplished this week.

Take a look at how the teams did…

Cruz Azul take down Chivas

Two new Cruz Azul and former Chivas players in Carlos Fierro and Carlos Peña returned to their old home on Saturday night. Moreover, it was their team who walked away with the three points on the road. Despite being down 0-1 at halftime, Cruz Azul managed to put away three goals in the second half, highlighted by a golazo from Rafael Baca to give them a 2-1 lead.

Carlos Fierro got the last laugh against his former team when he received a go-ahead pass and assisted Felipe Mora in the third and final goal of the night in the 90th minute.

Club León dismantle Toluca

Don’t look now, but Landon Donovan’s new team may be the team to watch out for this season. Two games in and they are cruising with six points. At home against Toluca, Club León was able to share the love on the scoresheet with three different players scoring in the 3-1 victory.

With Giles Barnes and Landon Donovan joining the club, it would be no surprise to see them keep this momentum going, as well as becoming one of the most popular teams to watch.

América and Pachuca share a point in a thriller

In what was arguably the “game of the week,” Club América and Pachuca came down to the wire in a 2-2 draw. Oribe Peralta redeemed himself only minutes after failing to convert a penalty by scoring a slick one-timer to give América the lead. Pachuca didn’t back down, and in the 47th minute, Óscar Murillo headed home the equalizer.

New América addition Henry Martín continues to look solid, as he put Club Amércia up, 2-1, in the 75th minute. Yet, Pachuca’s in-form blazer Víctor Guzmán brought the game level one last time in the 88th minute.
