Toluca celebrated a return to their impressive form of last season after a slow start to the Apertura with a comfortable 3-0 win over Pachuca. A headed opener by Paulo da Silva was followed by a second half brace from Pablo Velázquez to give José Cardozo’s side back-to-back Liga MX wins. Later, in Guadalajara, things were not quite so jovial as Chivas slumped to another defeat, drawing the ire of the home fans. A devastating Darwin Quintero counter attack goal in the 88th minute brought the defeat after another match which Chivas toiled but could not open up their opposition.
Toluca 3 – 0 Pachuca
