C16 Copa MX Review: Group 1 Game 1

copa corona mxDorados de Sinaloa 1-2 Leones Negros
Dorados de Sinaloa fell 1-2 to Leones Negros on Tuesday night to keep Dorados winless in all competitions in the Clausura 2016. The visiting Universidad de Guadalajara got off to a perfect start when José Lomeli tried his luck from distance, with his long-range shot finding the top corner to make it 0-1 in just the 8th minute. It took Dorados some time to recover from that early blow, with their best chance of the half coming in the 31st minute through Sonny Guadarrama, whose shot was saved by Javier Morán.

In the second half, Dorados had more of the ball but lacked creativity going forward, while Leones Negros made their chances count. The visitors made it 0-2 in the 64th minute through Adrián Villalobos, and although Dorados managed to reduce the deficit in the 86th minute through Freddy Martín, it was too little, too late for the hosts.

FC Juárez 1-0 Chivas de Guadalajara
FC Juárez earned a victory by the minimum difference over reigning Copa MX champion Chivas de Guadalajara on Wednesday night. The Bravos made their home field advantage count as the Ascenso MX champions made Mario Ortiz’s 63rd minute goal stand up.

Chivas immediately pressed forward in search of an equalizer and they nearly found one in the 68th minute, but Yair Urbina made a spectacular save to deny Ángel Saldívar. Then Juárez could have put the game out of reach in the 85th minute when they were awarded a penalty kick, but Rodolfo Cota made the save on Édgar Pacheco. Wanderley de Jesús was sent off in stoppage time after receiving a pair of yellow cards in quick succession, but Chivas didn’t have enough time to make their extra man count.
