The Disciplinary Committee has suspended five players and one coach in the aftermath of this weekend’s Jornada 11 games.
Miguel Herrera, coach of Tijuana, will be sidelined for the Xolos’ next two games. Herrera was given a one-game suspension for constantly protesting the referee crew’s decisions and another for a lack of respect towards the match officials.
In this relegation six-pointer, a last-minute goal gave Monarcas Morelia the 0-1 away win against Puebla. The result is a second straight victory for Morelia and keeps them unbeaten in three, while Puebla has now lost two in a row.
Neither team wanted to lose this game far more than either one wanted to win it. Play was decidedly cautious for long stretches of the game, and goal-scoring chances didn’t begin to appear in earnest until the second half.
América let a two-goal lead slip, but a late goal by Cecilio Domínguez gave the Águilas a 2-3 victory against Pumas UNAM. The result keeps América unbeaten in three while Pumas suffered their first home loss of the season.
The universitarios started the game off better as they looked to take advantage of América’s absentees, as well as the forced substitution of the injured Miguel Samudio. In the 18th minute, they nearly opened the scoring when Jesús Gallardo found an open Nicolás Castillo, but he couldn’t put his shot on frame.
Both teams had the lead at one time or another, but in the end Necaxa and Jaguares de Chiapas had to settle for a 2-2 draw. The result keeps the Rayos unbeaten in three but winless in four, while Jaguares remain winless in two and winless in four on the road.
With both teams involved in the relegation fight, there was plenty of motivation on both sides to earn a victory. Necaxa seized the initiative and began to test Moisés Muñoz, with Edson Puch having the first opportunity of the night.
A late goal gave Toluca a 2-3 away win against León. The victory ends a two-game losing streak for the Diablos Rojos, while León remains winless in eight and rooted to the foot of the table.
Desperate to end their poor run of form, León took the initiative early on. However, their forays down the wings didn’t translate into goals, and as time passed Toluca settled into the game and began to press their lines higher up the field.
Monterrey moved into first place in the table with a 2-0 victory over 10-man Atlas. The win keeps the Rayados unbeaten at home this season while the Rojinegros are now winless in two.
The hosts started the game off strongly, with their first good chance coming in just the second minute. However, Dorlan Pabón was unable to put his shot on target after receiving a through ball in the box.
