Chivas may have appointed a new manager but things are yet to show any signs of improvement under Jose Manuel “Chepo” de la Torre and the nature of defeat in Torreon on Tuesday night is another new low for the suffering Rojiblanco supporters. Santos were themselves in need of a boost, and Chivas kindly gave it to them. Two Javier Arozco headers and a Juan Rodriguez penalty had Chepo’s side three down after just 20 minutes. A truly dire performance continued and Santos added two more after half time to compound Chivas’ misery.
In Tuesday’s other Quarter Final, Lobos de la BUAP defeated Merida 3-1 to book their place in the Semi Final and a clash with either Atlas or rivals, Puebla.
Santos 5 – 0 Chivas
Merida 1 – 3 Lobos de la BUAP
