santos-atlante-mexsport13-1

The major talking point of round 15 was undoubtedly Atlante finally losing their fight to stay in Liga MX as they battled but ultimately lost in a thrilling 4-3 match against Santos Laguna. Darwin Quintero did the damage with a hat trick as Santos moved up to third ahead of their Copa Libertadores clash in Buenos Aires on Thursday.

Two sides who can now breathe a sigh of relief in the knowledge that they are safe for another season are Chivas and Veracruz. Both sides picked up 1-1 draws against Morelia and Pumas respectively. The point keeps Chivas and Pumas in the playoff spots in an increasingly tight battle for the final few spots with just 2 rounds left to play.

Club América bounced back and solidified their liguilla place with a 1-0 win away to playoff rivals, Puebla while at the top of the table Toluca impressed yet again with a 2-1 win over León and Cruz Azul remained in top spot after a 2-2 draw against Pachuca despite trailing by two.
