A first away win in over a year gave Chivas fans a rare reason to be cheerful. Aldo De Negris’ early header gave Los Rojiblancos a hard fought and well overdue away victory over Puebla.
Toluca continued their good start to the championship with a 2-0 win over Chiapas but were made to work for their 3 points. Isaac Brizuela opened the scoring shortly after the break when he cut inside onto his left foot and rifled a shot past Alfredo Frausto and with minutes remaining Pablo Velázquez headed in a second to end any hopes of a Chiapas comeback.
Liga MX’s form side, Cruz Azul once again swept aside their opponents to remain top and the only unbeaten side, while for Atlante things look bleak at the foot of the relegation table. Despite that, Atlante produced one of their better performances but were picked apart by some fine counter attacking football. Marco Fabian gave La Maquina a first minute lead tapping in from close range but Angel Sepulveda volleyed Atlante level before the break. Atlante continued to be a threat but were thwarted by some fine work by Jesus Corona and instead were undone by a quick break finished by Joao Rojas. Mauro Formica added a third before Fabian headed his second of the game. This attacking brand of counter attacking football is allowing the fans to dare to dream. Finally, Queretaro managed a 2-0 win over Veracruz despite having Isaac Romo and Gil Burón sent off. Ricardo Jesus headed Los Gallos Blancos in front before the two red cards but that did not prevent Yasser Corona leaping highest to nod home a set piece from the right.
Puebla 0 – 1 Chivas
