Chivas de Guadalajara remained in first place after a 1-1 draw with América in the SuperClásico, while Monarcas Morelia remained in last after suffering their ninth loss of the season at the hands of Monterrey.
In the relegation fight, both Leones Negros and Puebla lost, which dropped the Universidad de Guadalajara to the foot of the relegation standings. However, survival is still in Leones Negros’ own hands; they need just four points to ensure their safety, even if Puebla wins out.
