Leon claimed a vital 2-0 lead in the first leg of the Mexican Apertura final with goals from Carlos Pena and Maruo Boselli at home to Club America on Thursday.

Leon took the lead after just 10 minutes of the game when Pena struck the opening goal.

Boselli secured the win and with it what could prove to be a valuable plus goal difference of two when he scored the second with 76 minutes on the clock.

Club America will look to claw back that deficit in the second leg on Monday.
