It was honors even in the Apertura 2019 Clásico Capitalino as América and Pumas UNAM played out a 1-1 draw. The result keeps the Águilas unbeaten at home this season, but also keeps them winless in four overall, while the universitarios remain unbeaten in two.
The game took an early turn for the worse for the hosts as Francisco Córdova was sent off in just the 17th minute after a studs-up tackle on Juan Pablo Vigón, leaving América to play the majority of the game with just 10 on the field.
Monarcas Morelia earned their first home win of the Apertura with a 2-0 victory against Pumas UNAM. The result snaps the michoacanos’ two-game losing streak, while the universitarios now have three losses in their last four.
The visitors started the game off better, but Morelia found a few dangerous chances of their own. Fernando Aristeguieta had a clear opportunity when he got his head to a cross after some good passing play around the box, but his header whistled just inches wide of the post.

The Disciplinary Committee has suspended 5 players in the aftermath of this weekend’s Jornada 3 games – although one of those suspensions has been appealed.
Cruz Azul’s Jonathan Rodríguez, Querétaro’s George Corral, and Puebla’s Lucas Cavallini were all given one-game suspensions for serious foul play.
Puebla filed a petition of non-conformity regarding Cavallini’s red card, which the Disciplinary Committee overturned. However, Puebla appealed the Committee’s decision and the Appeals Commission is now meeting to make a determination.
Tigres UANL scored a last-minute – and historic – goal to give them a 0-1 away win against Pumas UNAM. The result ends UNAM’s perfect start to the season while UANL bounced back from last weekend’s loss.
The hosts started the game off stronger, but the final touch was lacking. Pumas generated quite a few off-target shots, and the ones that did go on frame were easily handled by Nahuel Guzmán.

Pumas UNAM spoiled Atlético San Luis’s Liga MX debut with a 0-2 away victory against the Potosinos.

Pumas UNAM took a two-goal lead but failed to hold it as Toluca came back for a 2-2 draw. The result keeps the universitarios winless in two while the Diablos Rojos are unbeaten in four, but the draw wasn’t enough to keep them in playoff contention; they are now unable to qualify for the Liguilla.
Pumas was already eliminated from playoff contention going into this one, while Toluca needed a win to stay in the fight. Despite that, it was the hosts who started the game off stronger. Just seconds after the opening whistle, Brian Figueroa had the ball in the back of the net; however, the would-be goal was disallowed for a questionable offside call.
The Disciplinary Committee has suspended three players and an assistant coach in the aftermath of this weekend’s Jornada 15 games.

Cruz Azul dispatched 10-man Pumas UNAM 2-1 to solidify their place in the playoff standings. The result keeps La Máquina unbeaten in eight, while the universitarios have now lost two of their last three and are eliminated from playoff contention.
Cruz Azul had the better of the early opportunities, but they struggled to convert them. Orbelín Pineda in particular had two clear chances that he was unable to finish off as the score remained stubbornly 0-0. Then, the visitors thought they had taken the lead when Carlos González beat Jesús Corona, but VAR review disallowed the goal for offside.
