The Disciplinary Committee has suspended 3 players in the aftermath of this weekend’s Jornada 14 games.
Guido Rodríguez of América and Jesús Dueñas of Tigres UANL were given one-game suspensions for serious foul play; Tigres filed a petition of non-conformity regarding Dueñas’s red card, but the petition was overturned and the suspension stands.
Maximiliano Salas of Necaxa was given a one-game suspension for yellow-card accumulation after receiving his fifth caution of the season.
The Disciplinary Committee investigation into the violence that marred the San Luis vs Querétaro game is still ongoing.
Both teams had the lead at one time or another, but in the end it was honors even as Necaxa and América played out a 2-2 draw. The result keeps the Rayos unbeaten in four, while the Águilas are now winless in two.
Necaxa came out attacking as they looked to retake the top of the table, but Memo Ochoa was in fine form to deny them. The keeper made an impressive save on Jesús Angulo in the 14th minute to keep Necaxa from taking the lead, and América looked to build from the back and get something going in the attacking third themselves.
Monarcas Morelia took a two-goal lead but failed to hold it as Necaxa stormed back for a 2-3 away win. The result keeps the Rayos unbeaten in three and extends their road winning streak to four games, while the michoacanos have now lost two in a row.
The night started off well for the hosts, who came out attacking and took the lead in the 23rd minute. Eduardo del Ángel headed home a cross from the left to put Morelia ahead 1-0.
Neither team could find the breakthrough in this one as Necaxa and FC Juárez played out a 0-0 draw. The result keeps the Rayos unbeaten in two while the Bravos are now unbeaten in three.
The hosts came out attacking and had a pair of early opportunities, but they couldn’t convert them. Then, in the 15th minute, Diego Rolán nearly gave Juárez the lead with his header, but it ended up going over the bar.
Necaxa claimed first place in the table – pending the rest of this week’s results – with a 1-2 away win against Querétaro. The result gives the Rayos three wins in their last four as they bounced back from a loss over the weekend, while the Gallos Blancos are now winless in three.
The hosts started the game off well, although they had made several changes to their starting lineup due to the schedule congestion giving them three games in seven days. Those changes didn’t seem to faze them, though, and they had the ball in the back of the net twice – only for both would-be goals to be disallowed.
León earned another lopsided win with a 2-4 away victory against Necaxa. The result is a second straight multi-goal win for La Fiera, who remain unbeaten in six, while the Rayos saw their own five-game unbeaten run halted as they suffered their first home defeat of the season.
The hosts started the game off well, but León grew into the game and soon took control of the midfield. Luis Montes had a dangerous early chance with his shot from outside the box in the 8th minute, while Necaxa had a good look in the 14th minute with a header by Mauro Quiroga.
Necaxa moved into first place in the table – pending the rest of this weekend’s results – with a 0-2 away win against 10-man Monterrey. The result gives the Rayos back-to-back wins and keeps them unbeaten in five while the Rayados have now lost two in a row.
Monterrey went into this one unbeaten at home in the Apertura, but they were unable to keep that streak alive. The hosts were uncharacteristically ineffectual in the first half, while Necaxa created dangerous chances such as when Mauro Quiroga hit the crossbar.
Necaxa ended Jornada 6 play with a 1-2 away win against Chivas de Guadalajara. The result gives the Rayos back-to-back victories – and their first win on the road – while El Rebaño has now lost two in a row.
The visitors took the lead early on. In the 10th minute, Maximiliano Salas received the ball in the box, muscled past Oswaldo Alanís, and sent his shot into the back of the net to make it 0-1 for Necaxa.
Tigres UANL scored early and never looked back as they picked up a 3-1 victory against Necaxa. The result keeps the universitarios perfect at home this season, while the Rayos remain winless on the road.
André-Pierre Gignac, who was honored in a pregame ceremony for becoming Tigres’ all-time leading goalscorer, added to his tally in the 4th minute. Gignac headed home a cross from Luis Quiñones to give the hosts the early 1-0 lead.
Necaxa steamrolled past Veracruz with a stunning 7-0 victory. The result gave the Rayos their first win of the season in considerable style, while the Tiburones Rojos remain winless in the Apertura.
The opening ten minutes were slow, but everything changed with Maximiliano Salas’s goal in the 12th minute. Salas sent a shot from distance flying past Sebastián Jurado to give Necaxa the 1-0 lead and give the hosts a confidence boost.
