Monarcas Morelia remained unbeaten in four but saw their two-game winning streak halted as they drew 0-0 with Chivas de Guadalajara. The result keeps the Rebaño unbeaten in three but likewise ends their own two-game winning streak.
With relegation rival Veracruz picking up a win to close the distance between them, pressure was on Morelia to earn a victory of their own in this one. However, the michoacanos haven’t been convincing at home this season and they had to settle for a draw here.
The first dangerous chance of the game came in the 22nd minute from a set piece, but Gabriel Achilier couldn’t get the right connection with Diego Valdés’s service.
In the second half, Morelia came as close as hitting the crossbar with another dangerous free kick from Valdés, but the woodwork was as close as they could get to a goal.
Chivas had chances of their own, with the best falling to Rodolfo Pizarro, but he got his touch wrong and skied his shot with the goal at his mercy.
With the 0-0 draw, Morelia reaches 16 points while Chivas reaches 21.
