América started the game off attacking and they only got more dominant after Francisco Rodríguez was shown a straight red card in the 20th minute for a bad foul on Oribe Peralta. The Águilas finally opened the scoring in the 35th minute, when Renato Ibarra sent in a corner kick for Henry Martín, who headed it home to make it 1-0.
Martín made it 2-0 ten minutes later as Cecilio Domínguez got free on the left and sent in a cross that Martín once again got his head to. He then completed his hat-trick just moments into the second half with another assist from Domínguez.
Lobos were briefly able to reduce the deficit in the 75th minute when Eduardo Tercero made it 3-1, but just minutes later the Águilas restored their three-goal cushion. In the 78th minute, Martín played in Ibarra, whose diagonal shot made it 4-1.
Jérémy Ménez put the cherry on top of América’s win with his first goal for the Águilas in the 80th minute to make it 5-1.
With the 5-1 win, América reaches 11 points while Lobos still have one.
