Sunday: Toluca keep pace with win over Chivas as Atlante and Puebla draw (VIDEO)


Toluca left it late but managed to maintain their challenge to Cruz Azul at the top of the Liga MX table.  Isaac Brizuela was a constant threat to the Chivas defence but it took until the 89th minute to break the deadlock. Brizuela’s low drive from outside the box was too well placed for Jose Rodriguez and finally ended the Chivas resistance. The win takes Toluca to 19 points, just 3 behind leaders, Cruz Azul.

Later, Atlante and Puebla played out a drab, goalless draw. The point does little to help Atlante in their bid to stay in the division and they will look back ruefully on Michael Arroyo’s miss in the second half.

Toluca  1 – 0  Chivas

Atlante  0 – 0  Puebla
