León may not have impressed in the regular season and had to sneak into the Liguilla but they are clicking at just the right time and the dream of back-to-back titles is now very much a reality. Last night in the Nou Camp, Los Esmeraldas did enough to earn a hard fought victory thanks to the in-form, Luís Montes. His well-placed header midway through the first half was surprisingly the only goal of the match despite chances at either end.
Toluca will remain confident given their early season form and trailing by only a goal but there will be concern as keeper, Alfredo Talavera was forced off with injury after taking a fierce Boselli drive to the face. The regular seasons best defence will be looking for another shutout if they are to stage a comeback.
LEÓN 1 – 0 TOLUCA
