Leaders held, Laguna into third
Goals from Jhonfai Fabian and Erick Torres twice had Guadalajara ahead but Esqueda's late goal, added to his 54th-minute penalty, earned the visitors a point from a game where Guadalajara goalkeeper Luis Michel and Pachuca's Munoz Mustafa were dismissed in separate incidents early in the second half.
Santos Laguna brushed off bottom club Atlas 3-0 to move up to third place in the table. Santiago Hoyos scored for Santos but was dismissed in the 64th minute. However, the visitors could not make the numerical advantage pay and a frustrating night was capped when they had goalkeeper Miguel Pinto sent off four minutes from time, with substitute Carlos Morales and Oribe Peralta netting late on.
San Luis were too strong for Toluca, winning 5-1. Joel Gonzalez and Alfredo Moreno had San Luis 2-0 up at half-time and second-half goals from Ismael Blanco, Moreno and substitute Wilmer Aguirre made the points safe. Ivan Alonso responded for the visitors at 4-0.
