Two goals from Oribe Peralta gave Santos a good win over Pumas after they had fallen behind early to Dante López’s fortuitous goal. Fresh from inspiring his side to Copa Libertadores qualification during the week, Mexico international, Peralta headed in the winner with minutes remaining.
Earlier, Querétaro defeated Tijuana to move within a point of Los Xolos and the 8th and final Liguilla spot. Jesús da Silva fired Los Gallos Blancos in front from range but Dario Benedetto equalised with an even better strike from outside the box. However, just 5 minutes later the lead was restored when Jesús da Silva bundled in his second of the game.
Querétaro 2 – 1 Tijuana
Santos 2 – 1 Pumas
