Cruz Azul go top, Tigres win and Xolos and Chiapas entertain (VIDEO)


Cruz Azul’s fine start to the Clausura continued on Saturday evening with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Monterrey. A fine Christian Giménez goal ensured La Máquina would go top of the table and remain undefeated in the opening five rounds. Tijuana missed out on the opportunity to leapfrog them after an exciting 2-2 draw against Chiapas but there were plenty of positives for Los Xolos, displaying a new found belief on the road to come from behind twice. Aviles Hurtado and Vicente Vuoso had given Chiapas the lead on two occasions only to see Jesús Chávez and Richard Ruíz peg them back and share the points. Puebla remain in relegation danger after suffering defeat away to Tigres. Ecuadorian, Joffre Guerrón poked in the only goal of the game from close range, making amends for his earlier penalty miss. Lastly, Pachuca and Toluca played out a 1-1 draw after Wilder Guisao’s fine finish cancelled out Erick Gutiérrez’s early header.
