Tijuana were able to ease the pressure on manager, César Farías with a 2-1 win over Chiapas in the Estadio Caliente thanks to Darío Benedetto’s double. Despite Farías and his opposing number, Sergio Bueno being sent off at half time, Los Xolos were able to hold on for a first win of the season. Earlier, in Querétaro, Los Gallos Blancos were held to a goalless draw by Veracruz. With Los Tiburones Rojos involved it was never likely to be a goal-fest and once again their defence held firm and kept the Querétaro attack at bay. Both teams will be pleased with the starts that they have made to the Apertura.
Querétaro 0 – 0 Veracruz
Tijuana 2 – 1 Chiapas
