Neither team could find the breakthrough in this one as León and Jaguares de Chiapas drew 0-0. The game marked Sergio Bueno’s first back in charge of Jaguares, as they snapped a four-game losing streak but remained winless in seven.
León saw their two-game winning streak halted but they remain unbeaten in three with the draw.
The goalkeepers were the heroes of the match as both William Yarbrough and Liborio Sánchez were called into action repeatedly to keep the game goalless.
The game was a back-and-forth affair in the early going, with Mauro Boselli and Germán Cano both coming close to opening the scoring. The hosts had the better of the chances, and it wasn’t until the 24th minute that Jaguares had a dangerous opportunity, but Yarbrough was there to make the save.
In the second half, the game evened out, with Jaguares holding more possession and pushing their lines forward more effectively. However, it was León who had the best chance of the half, when Boselli found Luis Montes in the box, but Sánchez was able to send the shot out for a corner kick.
In the end, despite a combined 30 shots, the scoreboard never moved and León and Jaguares had to settle for sharing the spoils.
With the 0-0 draw, León reaches 11 points while Jaguares reach five.
