Pumas, Monterrey, Tijuana, América, and Cruz Azul remain unbeaten this season while Veracruz, Lobos, and Atlas are still winless – and Atlas has yet to earn any points.
In the relegation fight, Veracruz remained last despite their 1-1 draw with Santos Laguna, while relegation rivals Querétaro, Puebla, and Atlas lost and Lobos drew.
Monterrey remained perfect on the road this season with a 1-2 away win against Chivas de Guadalajara. The result leaves El Rebaño winless at home this season, while the Rayados remain unbeaten in the Clausura 2018.
The first half started off somewhat slowly, with few real chances of note until just before halftime, when Rodolfo Cota made a pair of saves on Rogelio Funes Mori and Arturo González in the 40th minute. Then, two minutes later, Monterrey took the lead.
América remained unbeaten in the Clausura 2018 with a 1-0 victory against Atlas. The result is a fourth straight loss for the Rojinegros, who have dropped into last place in the standings, while the Águilas earned their first home win of the season.
Rubén Omar Romano made his debut as Atlas coach, but it wasn’t enough for the Rojinegros to earn their first points of the season. Atlas started the game off well, though, with an early chance by Edwin Gómez that looked to surprise Agustín Marchesín.
The visitors had the first chance of the game with a shot from Víctor Dávila in just the 7th minute, but William Yarbrough made the save. It took León until the 17th minute to find a notable chance of their own, with Elías Hernández forcing a save out of Marcelo Barovero.
10-man Tigres UANL scored late to earn a 3-2 victory against Pachuca. The result keeps the universitarios perfect at home this season as well as unbeaten in three overall, while the Tuzos remain winless on the road.
The hosts had chances early on, but Alfonso Blanco made several good saves to keep Tigres off the board. Pachuca had few chances of their own, although Emmanuel García did test Nahuel Guzmán in the 31st minute.
Lobos BUAP took the lead but couldn’t hold it as Pumas UNAM came back for a 1-1 draw. The result snaps a three-game losing streak for the Licántropos but leaves them winless in the Clausura 2018, while the universitarios remain unbeaten.
The game started off well for the hosts, who took the lead in just the 6th minute. Lobos took advantage of a set piece to open the scoring, with César Cercado appearing completely unmarked to head home a corner kick and make it 1-0.
The hosts took the lead in the 11th minute. A cutback into the box from the end line slipped through both attackers and defenders before Damián Musto ran on to it at the top of the box. He sent the ball towards the far post, where Gustavo Bou finished it off to make it 1-0 for Tijuana.
Monarcas Morelia remained perfect at home this season with a 1-0 victory against 10-man Querétaro. The result ends a two-game unbeaten streak for the Gallos Blancos, and it could see them lose ground in the relegation fight as well.
The game started off poorly for the visitors, who went down to 10 men in just the 7th minute as Miguel Samudio was given a straight red card for a reckless challenge on Carlos Guzmán. Morelia looked to take advantage, but they were unable to make their extra man count in a largely even first half.
