Toluca have taken a huge step towards the Semi Finals with a 3-0 victory over Cruz Azul. After last season’s heart break for La Maquina it would appear that their hopes of redemption are all but over. Oscar Rojas fired Toluca into the lead on the half hour mark and 5 minutes later Jair Pereira managed to balloon the ball into his own net. With 10 minutes remaining, Francisco Gamboa headed a third which leaves Cruz Azul with a mountain to climb. Later, Morelia fought back to draw 3-3 with Leon in an enthralling game of football. A fine long range strike from Luis Montes gave Leon the lead and when Mauro Boselli exquisitely lobbed goalkeeper, Federico Vilar 5 minutes later it appeared to be Leon’s day. A superb solo effort from highly sought after, Ecuadorian winger, Jefferson Montero reduced the deficit but before the break the two-goal lead was reestablished by Elias Hernandez. However, substitute, Ever Guzman ensured that the tie will go back to Leon with it all to play for with a late brace. WATCH ALL THE GOALS HERE….
