León vs Necaxa – Jornada 4 Recap and Highlights

Necaxa earned their first win of the season in style with a 0-4 away win against León. The result brings León’s unbeaten start to the Clausura 2018 to an abrupt halt.

In the 53rd minute, Yarbrough made the initial save on Roberto Alvarado, but the rebound fell for González, who scored his second of the night to make it 0-3.

Dieter Villalpando put the cherry on top of the win for Necaxa with his 87th minute goal, with his shot from outside the box giving the Rayos a commanding 0-4 lead.
