Morelia, Guadalajara drop points
Morelia missed the chance to go top of Group Three in the Clausura as they were held 1-1 at Monterrey. Indeed, it could have been worse for Morelia as they needed a last-minute penalty from Luis Rey to cancel out Neri Cardozo's 28th-minute opener. A win would have given them the best record in the competition.
There was also a missed opportunity for Guadalajara, who would have cut Tigres' lead in Group One to two points with a win over Santos Laguna but instead slipped to an agonising 1-0 defeat. Felipe Baloy scored the only goal in the 90th minute.
There was better luck for Toluca and Atlas in Group Two, who each moved within three points of stuttering leaders Atlante with wins. Toluca won 2-1 at San Luis courtesy of an exciting final ten minutes which saw them twice take the lead through first Manuel de la Torre and then Raul Nava, with Sergio Ponce levelling in between.
Half-time substitute Alfredo Moreno's late double saw Atlas come back from Yulian Anchico's eighth-minute opener to win by the same scoreline.
Those results enabled them to take advantage of Atlante's 1-1 draw with Necaxa. Christian Bermudez's penalty 15 minutes from time rescued a point for the group leaders after Arturo Ledesma had put Necaxa ahead in the 20th minute. Atlante had Fernando Navarro sent off in the 79th minute.
In the day's other game, Puebla beat Cruz Azul 2-0 with first-half goals from Felix Borja and Walter Jimenez.
