León vs Chivas de Guadalajara – Jornada 17 Recap and Highlights

Chivas de Guadalajara closed out their season with a 0-2 away win against León. El Rebaño were already out of playoff contention before kickoff, while León, already qualified, was looking to improve their seeding.

The hosts had chances from the opening whistle, with Mauro Boselli, Andrés Andrade, and Elías Hernández all causing problems for Guadalajara’s defense. However, La Fiera couldn’t find the breakthrough and Chivas grew into the game.

Despite a number of chances at both ends, the game remained goalless going into halftime. The same back-and-forth dynamic continued in the second half, with plenty of action in front of goal.

Chivas finally found the breakthrough in the 68th minute, when Carlos Fierro’s diving header finished off a corner kick and made it 0-1 for the visitors.

After falling behind, León threw numbers forward as they looked for a quick response. They came within inches when Álvaro Ramos was denied by Miguel Jiménez and then saw his follow-up attempt knocked into the crossbar and out for a corner kick by José Juan Vázquez.

Then, in the final moments of the game, Chivas sealed the victory with a counterattack goal by Isaác Brizuela to make it 0-2.

With the 0-2 win, Chivas reaches 18 points while León still has 26.
