The Disciplinary Committee has suspended three players and a coach in the aftermath of this weekend’s Jornada 10 games.
Mario Osuna of Monarcas Morelia and Matías Fernández of Necaxa were both given one-game suspensions for receiving two yellow cards in the same game, while Omar Mendoza of Tijuana was suspended one game for yellow-card accumulation after picking up his fifth caution of the season.
Tigres UANL extended their winning streak to three games with a 0-2 away win against Veracruz. The result keeps the universitarios unbeaten in five, while the Tiburones Rojos have now lost two in a row, are winless in three, and remain rooted to the foot of the relegation standings.
The visitors took the lead in just the 7th minute. A throw-in led to the goal by Lucas Zelarayán, who had only to tap the ball into the empty net to give Tigres the early 0-1 lead.
Toluca remained unbeaten at home this season with a 2-1 victory against Pachuca. The result is a third straight win for the Diablos Rojos, while the Tuzos saw their four-game unbeaten streak brought to a halt.
The hosts suffered an early setback as Maximiliano Perg had to be subbed out due to injury just five minutes into the game, but the enforced change in the back didn’t affect Toluca’s play. Pachuca was well-organized defensively, however, and the Diablos were largely limited to shots from outside the box.
It was honors even in the Clausura 2018 edition of the SuperClásico as Chivas de Guadalajara and América played out a 1-1 draw. The result keeps El Rebaño winless at home this season and winless in seven overall while the Águilas remain unbeaten but are now winless in three.
Chivas had one of their best performances of the season here as they raised their level of play for the rivalry game. They came out attacking, looked dangerous, and took the lead in the 21st minute.
Necaxa took the lead but couldn’t hold it as Santos Laguna came back for a 1-2 away win. The result, a second straight win for Santos, lifts the Laguneros into first place in the table while the Rayos saw their six-game unbeaten streak halted and are now winless in two.
The hosts took the lead in the 15th minute, when Víctor Dávila received the ball in the box, got around José Abella, and beat Jonathan Orozco to make it 1-0 for Necaxa.
Puebla earned their first road win of the season with a comprehensive 1-3 victory against Monterrey. The result is the Rayados’ first home loss of the Clausura 2018 and leaves them with just one win in their last five overall.
The game started off well for the hosts as Monterrey took the lead in the 9th minute. Rogelio Funes Mori received the ball in the box and laid it off for Dorlan Pabón; the ball was intercepted by Alonso Zamora, but his attempted clearance hit teammate Anderson Santamaría and rebounded back towards Funes Mori. He then beat Moisés Muñoz at the near post to make it 1-0 for the Rayados.
