Jaguares, Cruz Azul take charge
Jaguares moved top of Mexico's Apertura on goals scored after a 5-3 win over Club America.
The home side led 3-1 at the break thanks to goals from Edgar Andrade, Christian Valdez and Franco Arizala, with Christian Benitez having equalised for the visitors.
Club America made it 3-2 just seconds after the break, but Andrade's second restored Jaguares's two-goal cushion. The visitors pulled another goal back on the hour through Daniel Montenegro, but Jackson Martinez sealed the win just before the end.
Cruz Azul joined Jaguares on 17 points and a goal difference of plus three after a 2-1 win at ten-man Monterrey. Cesar Villaluz Martinez put Cruz Azul ahead after just four minutes, but Cesar Delgado equalised soon after, before being forced off through injury.
Edixon Perea scored what proved to be the winner on 50 minutes, while Aldo De Nigris was sent off for Monterrey ten minutes from time. Former leaders Guadalajara also have 17 points from nine games after a surprise 4-1 defeat at home to Puebla.
A 26th-minute penalty from Jhonfai Fabian put Guadalajara ahead, but Lucas Silva scored twice for the visitors and Luis Garcia's penalty and a last-minute strike from Alan Zamora sealed the three points for Puebla. Guadalajara ended the game with nine men after Jonny Magallon and Kristian Alvarez were sent off.
Tigres fail to take top
Tigres Monterrey missed the chance to claim top spot as they lost 1-0 at Atlante, for whom goalscorer Jeronimo Amione was sent off a minute from time. Elsewhere, Pachuca left Atlas rooted to the foot of the table with a 4-2 win, despite also ending the game a man short.
Mauricio Romero put Atlas in front, but Pachuca hit back to lead 3-1 through Enrique Esqueda, Gerardo Rodriguez and Segundo Castillo before Horacio Cervantes received his marching orders.
Francisco Torres set up an exciting finish, but Leobardo Lopez scored from the penalty spot in the last minute to secure the points. Santos Laguna claimed a 1-0 win at San Luis thanks to Daniel Luduena's goal after 11 minutes.
