Liga MX Wrap: Cruz Azul, America win again

2 February 2014 22:07

Cruz Azul and America continued their promising starts to the Liga MX's Clausura season with weekend victories.

Cruz Azul are now the only undefeated side in the competition after a 2-0 win at Guadalajara on Sunday.

Luis Tena's men were kept goalless during the first half but sealed their win thanks to six minutes of brilliance just after the break.

Midfielder Mauro Formica fired the visitors ahead two minutes into the second half and Rogelio Chavez doubled their advantage shortly in the 53rd minute.

That win saw Cruz Azul climb back above America, who had to play for almost an hour with 10 men in their 1-0 home success over Atlante on Saturday.

Rubens Sambueza was sent off for the third time in less than a year for the hosts after retaliating to a foul in the 32nd minute.

But his team-mates did enough to hang on after Miguel Layun's eighth-minute goal.

Atlante were reduced to 10 men themselves after Mauricio Romero received a second yellow card in stoppage time at the end of the game.

Third-placed Toluca suffered a 2-0 defeat at Santos Laguna, who claimed their first win of the season at the fifth attempt as both sides finished with 10 men.

Toluca's Edgar Benitez was sent off in the 24th minute and Santos capitalised to score twice through Javier Orozco, before seeing Mauro Cejas dismissed.

Rock-bottom Tigres UANL managed a point in a goalless draw with Monterrey, while other results on the same day saw Atlas and Chiapas post 1-0 wins over Pachuca and Queretaro respectively.

And in Sunday's late kick-off, Pumas UNAM beat Tijuana 3-0.

Elsewhere, Puebla edged Veracruz 1-0, while Morelia and Leon played out a 0-0 draw.
