Guadalajara remain top
Guadalajara maintained their one-point lead over Monterrey at the top of the Bicentenario standings with a 1-0 victory over Club America. Omar Arellano scored the only goal of the game in the 35th minute to ensure his team remain a point ahead of the Apertura champions.
Monterrey beat ten-man Unam Pumas by the same score to keep up the pressure, with Walter Ayovi grabbing the winner from the spot three minutes after Sergio Bernal had been sent off on the hour mark. Unam Pumas are back in sixth, 10 points off the pace.
Santos Laguna remain in third but are now seven points off top spot following a shock 3-0 loss at home to struggling Jaguares. Jackson Martinez got the visitors off to the perfect start in the ninth minute before the unfortunate Uriel Alvarez turned into his own net shortly before the hour mark,
Bairros Danilinho wrapped up the points seven minutes from time for Jaguares who are now six points above rock-bottom Indios Juarez after their first away win of the season. The basement boys lost 2-1 to Pachuca thanks to a brace from Damian Manzo, either side of Juan Curbelo's equaliser.
Substitute Hector Gimenez was sent off for Indios Juarez two minutes from time, four minutes after coming off the bench. San Luis are three points above Indios after a 3-0 defeat to Tigres Monterrey.
Lucas Lobos gave them the lead from the spot in the 26th minute before Jose Fonseca and Jesus Molina scored either side of the break. Edwin Hernandez was sent off in the 72nd minute to cap a miserable night for San Luis.
Elsewhere, Cruz Azul are a point behind Santos after Christian Gimenez's 73rd-minute goal handed them a 1-0 win over Queretaro, who also had Marco Gomez sent off in stoppage time.
Morelia are two points further off following a 1-1 draw at home to struggling Puebla, who were forced to play nearly the whole match with 10 men after Marco Capetillo's eight-minute sending off.
Miguel Sabah put the hosts ahead in the 11th minute but half-time substitute Herculez Gomez equalised six minutes into the second half. Jorge Torres scored a last-minute equaliser for Atlas as they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw against ten-man Atlante.
Johan Fano gave the visitors the lead from the spot on the half-hour mark before Jesus Paganoni levelled for Atlas in the 39th minute and Ricardo Jimenez gave them the lead shortly after the hour.
Atlante's hopes of getting something from the game appeared to have evaporated when Daniel Arreola was dismissed in the 70th minute but Fano grabbed his second of the night four minutes later and Santiago Solari put them in front six minutes from time.
However, there was still time for Torres to snatch a share of the points for Atlas. Meanwhile, Toluca thrashed 10-man Tecos 5-0.
Carlos Esquivel, Osvaldo Gonzalez and Antonio Naelson had already given Toluca a comfortable lead before Jose Partida was sent off a minute from the break. Antonio Rios and Diego Novaretti completed the rout in the second half.
