Jaguares adjusted at halftime and came out in the second half ready to turn things around. In the 54th minute, Luis Leal found himself unmarked in the box as he headed home a cross from Julio Nava to make it 1-1.
Three minutes later, they completed the comeback with Dieter Villalpando surprising Marcelo Barovero to make it 1-2 in the 57th minute.
