Puebla earned a 2-3 away win against Jaguares de Chiapas in the Copa MX round of sixteen.

Just three minutes later, Carlos Orrantía made it 0-2 for Puebla with the help of a deflection off a Jaguares defender.

The hosts looked to respond in the second half, and in the 62nd minute Luis Miño was able to reduce the deficit to 1-2.

But Puebla restored their two-goal cushion just minutes later, when Navarro scored his second of the night to make it 1-3 in the 64th minute.

Jaguares were able to reduce the deficit once more when Félix Micolta converted a penalty kick in the 84th minute, but they were unable to go on to tie the game.

With the 2-3 win, Puebla advances to the quarterfinals while Jaguares are eliminated.
