The visitors looked the more dangerous side from the beginning, and in the 9th minute they came within inches of taking the lead when Alan Acosta hit the crossbar. Toluca had one notable chance through Felipe Pardo, which was saved well by Nikolás Vikonis, but the majority of play went Puebla’s way in the first half.
