copa corona mxLeones Negros 0-1 FC Juárez
FC Juárez earned a 0-1 away win over Leones Negros on Tuesday night to lift them above the UdeG in the group table. The visitors started the game off better and they took the lead from the penalty spot in the 14th minute. Nelson Maz converted the PK to give the Bravos the lead.

Leones Negros had more possession as they went in search of an equalizer, but they were lacking the final touch. In the second half, the pace of the game dropped off as Leones were unable to find a goal and Juárez settled in to protect their lead. In the end, the lone goal held up for the Bravos.

Dorados de Sinaloa 1-0 Chivas de Guadalajara
Dorados de Sinaloa are still looking for their first win in league play, but they earned their second cup victory with a 1-0 win over Chivas de Guadalajara on Wednesday night. The visitors had the better of the run of play in the first half, and Chivas came close to opening the scoring on several occasions, most notably though Carlos Peña.

However, Chivas couldn’t find the breakthrough while they had the impetus, and in the 83rd minute Dorados scored what turned out to be the lone goal of the game. On a set piece opportunity, Néstor Vidrio headed the ball against the post, with the rebound falling to Milton Caraglio to send home.
