The hosts had the better of play from the beginning, controlling possession and creating dangerous chances. In the 18th minute, their persistent attacking won them a penalty kick, which Felipe Rodríguez converted to make it 1-0.
Just a minute later, Rodríguez made it 2-0 for Jaguares after he drove into the area and sent his left-footed shot into the back of the net.
Atlante’s night got even worse in the 30th minute, when Francisco Estrada was given a straight red card, leaving the Potros to attempt a comeback with just 10 men.
They did make things interesting with a late goal from Carlos Cauich, who finished off the rebound from a Paul Uscanga shot in the 84th minute to make it 2-1. However, they were unable to find an equalizer and Chiapas hung on for the win.
With the 2-1 win, Jaguares advance to the quarterfinals while Atlante is eliminated.
