A long compelling match between León and Cruz Azul is explored on Vavel. After five goals including three in stoppage time Cruz Azul prevail. Estadio León was home to this match. This match was available to watch on Vix and can be reviewed there.

Cruz Azul started off with a decent chance; they shot the ball out of bounds over the net early in minute 2. C. Rodríguez got the scoring started for the game. He scored the Cruz Azul goal in minute 29 of the first half. It was a very long goal after a corner. The shot came from just outside the big box. This is after a couple close chances including one at the goalie box before the corner.

Goal two also was by Cruz Azul. That goal came across from R. Huescas in minute 38 of half number one. So the ball was out halfway past midfield; it was played in to the right side of the big box even with the penalty spot. Then the ball was tapped back two feet, trapped, and shot into the goal.

The second half would provide more offense. This time both clubs would contribute. However it looked like no more goals would be scored. This was true until a long stoppage time would begin.

The first of three goals in stoppage time would be put across by León. A. Medina Silva scored in the twelfth extra minute. That was quickly followed by a U. Antuna Cruz Azul response just three minutes after. The last goal was by Cruz Azul A. Alvarado at 26 minutes after ninety.
