José Saturnino Cardozo earned his first win as coach of Jaguares de Chiapas with a 1-0 victory against his former team, Toluca. The loss leaves the Diablos Rojos still looking for their first win of the season.
Toluca had the ball in the back of the net in just the 3rd minute, but the would-be goal was correctly disallowed for offside.
Jaguares then took the lead in the 15th minute after a quick counterattack. Alonso Escoboza finished off the play with a diagonal shot that beat Miguel Centeno to give Chiapas the 1-0 advantage.
They then came within inches of doubling their lead minutes later, but Paulo da Silva made a great clearance to keep Toluca in the match.
After that, the Diablos began to control the ball and create chances of their own. Late in the half, Da Silva nearly headed Toluca level but his attempt crashed against the woodwork.
In the second half, Jaguares regained control of the match and Martín Zúñiga had a good chance to make it 2-0 in the 56th minute, but the keeper did well to deny him.
Miguel Centeno made several good saves throughout the half to prevent Jaguares from running up the score, but Toluca was never able to take advantage and find an equalizer.
With the 1-0 win, Jaguares reach three points while Toluca remains on one.
