Question of the Day
MEXICO CITY (AP) - Cruz Azul downed Atlante 4-1 on Sunday to remain undefeated atop Mexico’s top division after the sixth round of the Clausura championship, the second of the country’s two annual football tournaments.
Toluca is second in the standings, three points behind, after a 2-0 win Sunday over Chiapas, while America held on to third place - a point behind Toluca - despite losing 1-0 to Pachuca on Saturday.
In other games this weekend, Pumas won 2-1 against reigning champions Leon, Chivas defeated Puebla 1-0, Atlas drew 1-1 with Morelia, Tijuana overcame Monterrey 2-1, Queretaro defeated Veracruz 2-0 and Tigres and Santos Laguna played out a 1-1 draw.
Marco Fabian finished in the 1st minute to put Cruz Azul ahead and rounded off the scoring with a header in the 82nd. Angel Sepulveda volleyed in the equalizer in the 34th, before Joao Rojas and Mauro Formica took the game beyond Atlante with second half goals.
Isaac Brizuela cut inside and fired a shot into the goal from outside the penalty area to open the scoring for Toluca in the 50th, with Pablo Velazquez heading in the second from close to the penalty spot four minutes from time.
Pachuca rookie Hirving Lozano found the net in the 89th to hand his side a victory over America.
