El Rebaño came out looking to make their home field advantage count as the reigning champions continue to try to get their season on track. But aside from a shot from distance by José Juan Vázquez in the 17th minute, which Tiago Volpi did well to save, most of the first-half chances went Querétaro’s way.
In the 23rd minute, Miguel Martínez got his head to a cross from Luis Noriega, but Rodolfo Cota was there to make the save. Then, in the 29th minute, Everaldo Stum came close with a shot that came within inches of the corner. Stum had another chance in the 41st minute with a shot from the top of the box, but Cota was there to make the save and the game went to halftime goalless.
In the second half, Chivas turned to shots from distance as they searched with increasing desperation for a breakthrough. They had a few good chances, but Volpi was in good form as he made the saves he needed to to keep the hosts off the board.
Chivas kept pressing right up until the end, with José Godínez putting a header on frame in the waning moments, only for the Brazilian netminder to once again intervene.
Neither team could find the breakthrough and the frustrated crowd in the Estadio Chivas booed at the final whistle as Chivas and Querétaro had to settle for a share of the spoils.
With the 0-0 draw, Chivas reaches five points while Querétaro reaches nine.
