Sporting Cristal and Real Garcilaso have missed the chance to lead the Primera Division after leaders Universitario lost 2-0 to Leon de Huanuco.
Diego Manicero's long-range strike and Carlos Solis' second-half penalty gave Leon a shock victory over Universitario but Cristal and Garcilaso were unable to overhaul the Peruvian league leaders after failing to win over the weekend.
Cristal were held to a scoreless draw by Inti Gas, while UTC Cajamarca defeated Garcilaso 1-0, leaving Universitario top of the Primera Division on 38 points.
Universitario have a one-point gap on second-placed Cristal, while Garcilaso, who have two games in hand, also have 37 points but sit third on goal difference.
In Huanuco on Sunday, Manicero opened the scoring for the hosts in the ninth minute, firing the ball into the bottom corner from 25 metres.
Universitario had not lost in nine matches but their chances of a comeback were dealt a severe blow when John Galliquio was sent off for a second bookable offence, while Leon effectively ended the visitors' unbeaten run six minutes later.
Visiting defender Nestor Duarte was judged to have handled the ball in the penalty area and Solis made no mistake from the spot.
But thanks to earlier results from the weekend, Universitario remained top of the league with Cristal losing Irven Avila and Renzo Revoredo to red cards either side of half-time during their 0-0 draw away to Inti Gas, while a smart header from Victor Guaza gave Cajamarca victory against Garcilaso.
In other Primera Division results, fourth-placed Alianza Lima were held to a 1-1 draw by Union Comercio, Cienciano defeated Cesar Vallejo 2-1, Juan Aurich scored in the last 15 minutes to clinch a 3-1 win over Jose Galvez, while Pacifico and Melgar's fixture finished 0-0.
