Atlas continued their fine start to the Apertura with a victory away to Pumas, whose third consecutive defeat led to the resignation of manager, Jose Luis Trejo. Another poor performance was eventually punished, when in the 55th minute, Arturo ‘Poncho’ Gonzalez slotted Los Rojinegros in front and Pumas never really looked like salvaging anything. Atlas remain on the heels of America and are the only other team unbeaten in what makes up a nightmare top two for Chivas fans. Later, in Guadalajara, Leones Negros finally got some points on the board after a dull goalless draw with Toluca. Los Diablos Rojos have not found their groove yet and although they were the better side they were unable to find the vital goal.
Pumas 0 – 1 Atlas
Leones Negros 0 – 0 Toluca
