México international, Miguel Layún produced a wonderful performance in Torreón, scoring all four goals en route to another victory for Club América as they defeated Santos. The pre-match discussion had been dominated by the animosity between Pedro Caixinha and Antonio Mohamed but Layún ensured it was his name in all of the headlines. Earlier, Ronaldinho and Querétaro relied on a controversial penalty to claim a draw with Toluca after Pablo Velázquez had headed the visitors in front and Veracruz did just enough to claim a 1-0 win over Tijuana thanks to Daniel Villalva’s first half goal.
Veracruz 1 – 0 Tijuana
Querétaro 1 – 1 Toluca
Santos Laguna 1 – 4 Club América
