Miss the big Liga MX games this weekend? No worries, because TheStoppageTime has got you covered! Here are the talking points from the weekend of November 6-8.
Monterrey fight back against América
This was a match that I highlighted as one to watch this weekend, and it proved itself to be a good one. Monterrey entered the match in 10th place, which means they badly needed a win. Club América would get on the board early with a goal from Carlos Darwin Quintero in the 7th minute. However, it was the second half where two goals from Monterrey would be enough to claim them the 3 points. The win puts them 8th in the table, which is a good spot with La Liguilla approaching.
Tigres dominate Veracruz
Tigres came into the season as one of the teams to watch out for. On Friday night, they proved as to why. A 3-1 victory over Veracruz places Tigres 3rd in the standings, a much needed spot with the playoffs approaching. Javier Aquino and Andre-Pierre Gignac proved to be the most valuable for Tigres on Friday’s win against Veracruz, as they both scored first half goals.
Chivas lose in stunner against Sinaloa
Chivas came into Saturday on a high note after beating Club León in the Copa MX final, but they found themselves on the losing end against Dorados de Sinaloa. Only nine minutes after a Marco Fabián goal for Chivas in the 70th, Segundo Castillo of Sinaloa evened the game up. He wouldn’t end it there, as he netted one more time in the 90th to cancel Chivas’ hopes of making the playoffs.
Pachuca hold off León
Arguably the best match of the weekend, Pachuca and León went back and forth in an entertaining duel. Pachuca would get on the board early, but Mauro Boselli of León scored twice before halftime to take a 2-1 lead. The second half produced some fireworks, as goals from Aquivaldo Moquera and Cristian Penilla were enough to give Pachuca an important victory.
