Toluca climbed to fifth in the Mexican Apertura standings on Sunday with a 3-0 home win over Pachuca.

Paulo da Silva opened the scoring in the eighth minute and Pablo Velazquez's second-half brace put the result beyond doubt, lifting the victors on to eight points from five games.

They were joined on that mark by Santos Laguna, who prevailed 1-0 at third-bottom Guadalajara thanks to substitute Carlos Quintero's strike two minutes from time.
