León would appear to have found their form again and last night, despite missing the departed, Rafa Marquez and the injured Mauro Boselli they earned a good opening Champions League win. León travelled to El Salvador and defeated Isidro Metapán 4-2 thanks to goals from Wanderley de Jesus Sousa, Luis Zamora and a second half brace from José Cárdenas to take a commanding position in Group 7. Later, defending champions, Cruz Azul hosted Costa Rican side, Alajuelense and were held to a 1-1 draw in another disappointing performance. Christian Giménez put La Maquina in front from the penalty spot but a defensive mistake allowed Armando Alonso to equalise.
Isidro Metapán 2 – 4 León
Cruz Azul 1 – 1 Alajuelense
