Tigres dominated the game from the beginning, and their pressure paid off in the 14th minute, when Ismael Sosa made it 1-0 for the hosts. He received the ball at the top of the box, ran behind the defense, and sent his shot into the back of the net.
Pumas had a chance to equalize through Javier Cortés, but Juninho was on the line to head the ball away with goalkeeper Nahuel Guzmán beaten.
Then, in the second half, Tigres began to run up the score. Halftime substitute Jürgen Damm was on the field for just over half an hour before he had to be subbed back out, but he managed to score twice in that span.
First, in the 53rd minute, he finished off a great ball from Eduardo Vargas to make it 2-0 for Tigres; then, in the 65th, he made it 3-0.
André-Pierre Gignac put the exclamation point on the victory in the 75th minute when his powerful shot beat Alfredo Saldívar to give the hosts the 4-0 lead.
With the 4-0 win, Tigres reach 19 points while Pumas remain on 18.
