Tigres UANL and CF Monterrey are not going through a good pace in La Liga MX, but that story is different in the Copa MX. Both northern teams are the only squads currently going through a perfect pace in the midweek competition.
Tigres dominated their game against Correcaminos UAT 4-0 at the Universitario Stadium. The felinos have outscored their opponents 11-1 in the last three games. Alan Pulido, who scored a “hat trick” with Mexico last week against South Korea, scored a goal this game making a bigger case for himself to play this summer in Brazil.
Monterrey also played a great game taking control of the pitch against Ascenso MX side Cruz Azul Hidalgo at the 10 de diciembre Stadium. Like their crosstown rivals, La Pandilla is suffering in the national tournament, but is having good results in the Copa MX.
Both teams take over their respective groups and are the only undefeated teams in the competition.
Chivas de Guadalajara’s problems have now transferred over to the Copa MX. This time the Rebaño Sagrado lost 2-1 to Ascenso MX side Estudiantes UAG. The goats were undefeated until last Saturday when they lost to Cruz Azul. However, don’t let the word “undefeated” fool you, Chivas had one win and three draws before facing the current league leaders.
Necaxa managed to level the score against Queretaro FC in the final minutes of regulation at the Victoria Stadium to draw 2-2. Queretaro took the lead twice, but saw their efforts spoiled by a persistent Hydrorayos. Necaxa leads Group 5 with 5 points after two draws and a win.
Leones Negros UG won their first game of the competition after losing and drawing against Chivas in the first fixture. The current Ascenso MX champions defeated Dorados de Sinaloa 2-0 at the Jalisco Stadium and place themselves behind the current group leader Chivas.
Tuesday Copa MX action:
