León vs Necaxa – Jornada 13 Recap and Highlights

León tied the league record for consecutive victories with a 2-1 win against Necaxa. The result is a 10th straight win for La Fiera, while the Rayos saw their three-game unbeaten streak brought to a halt.

The visitors were looking to solidify a playoff place, while the hosts were looking to remain top of the table. Necaxa started the game off with more possession, and they had the first chance in the 8th minute through Brian Fernández, although Rodolfo Cota easily made the save.

León soon began to create chance of their own, though, and in the 27th minute they opened the scoring. Juan Macías sent a low cross in for Luis Montes, whose first time effort was stopped by Hugo González. The rebound fell to Jean Meneses, though, and he put it away to make it 1-0 for La Fiera.

Soon after that, they made it 2-0. In the 34th minute, Fernando Navarro scored a golazo from just outside the box to put the hosts comfortably ahead going into halftime.

Necaxa looked for a reaction in the second half, but their hopes of a comeback took a blow in the 60th minute, when Luis Gallegos was sent off for a bad foul on José Rodríguez. Nevertheless, 10-man Necaxa was able to score soon after that, with Brian Fernández reducing the deficit to 2-1 in the 70th minute.

That goal set up an interesting finale as the Rayos pressed hard for an equalizer, but in the end León was able to hold on for the victory.

With the 2-1 win, León reaches 32 points while Necaxa still has 21.
