The woeful run of Chivas continued against Pachuca in Guadalajara with another defeat and resulted in equalling a winless streak that dates back to 1994. Rafael Marques Lugo fired Chivas in front following a delightful backheel by Carlos Fierro but Pachuca were quickly level. Jürgen Damm rounded Luis Michel to equalise and then before the break it was two when Othoniel Arce rose to head home from a corner. A limp second half performance was finally ended with minutes remaining by Marco Bueno’s deflected effort making it three. Puebla kept the pressure on Chiapas in the fight for the playoffs with a win over Atlas. Goals from Carlos Sanchez and Luis Noriega ensured Atlas’s search for a first win of the season goes on. Toluca and Tijuana could not be separated but it will be Los Xolos who will rue the missed opportunity to close on the teams above in the play0ff places. Toluca played the majority of the game with 10 men after Carlos Rodriguez’s red card but neither side could find a goal. WATCH THE GOALS HERE….
