MEXICO CITY ( Associated Press) – With goals from Paraguay’s Carlos González, Chile’s Jean Menis and Brazil’s Camilo Sanvejo, Toluca beat Tijuana 3-1 on Sunday to become the provisional leader of the Mexican Apertura tournament, marking its seventh game on the day. Used to be.
Edgar López put the Xolos in front in the 24th minute, but “Cocolisso” González on 35, Menes made it to 48 and Sanvezo on 90 with a penalty.
With the result, the Red Devils jumped to 17 points to displace Monterrey from first place.
Toluca could relinquish that spot if the Tigress (15) beat Pachuca later in another game on the seventh day of the match.
The Xolos broke their three-game winning streak and remained on 10 points, finishing sixth in the championship, with three games remaining.
Tijuana ended the game with 10 men due to Chilean player Nicolas Diaz’s expulsion on 73 minutes.
Xolos went ahead when Chile’s Joaquín Montequinos took a shot that was dismissed by Brazilian goalkeeper Tiago Volpi and the ball fell to López, who pushed it through the center of the goal.
Toluca equalized and took a shot that entered the right post after González received a cross from the left in short field.
The Red Devils took the lead when Menis found a center from the left and volleyed the ball inside the field and put it through the left post of a goal defended by Jonathan Orozco.
A foul eventually came inside the field and Sanvezo converted with a low shot through Orozco’s right post for 3–1.
