    Kévin Marius Parsemain

    His team's most dangerous and skillful player. Plenty of neat touches and passes. Scored with a confident penalty kick into the side netting.

    Juan Carlos Valenzuela

    An horrible attempt to bring the ball down in the first half gave Martinique a breakaway it failed to take advantage of. Recovered reasonably well the rest of the game.

  • Miguel Arturo Layun

    3.50

    Miguel Arturo Layun

    Plenty of good and bad. Was a constant threat attacking down the right flank, serving in a number of dangerous balls, including the assist for Ponce's goal. Defensively, was shaky at times and conceded a poor penalty that lead to Martinique's goal.

  • C. Peña

    C. Peña

    Kept things simple for the most part, but was sloppy in possession at times. Subbed off in the 70th minute

    L. Montes Top of the Match

    Scored a tremendous long-range goal with his left foot which proved to be the winner. Didn't impact the game much aside from that strike, however.

    3.00

    A. Castro

    Won almost everything through the middle, breaking up attacks nicely. His headed started the attack which led to El Tri's first. A solid performance.

  • R. Jiménez

    0
    3.50

    R. Jiménez

    Strong in the air, but did not get involved in the attack as much as he would have hoped. Hit the crossbar with a header in the early going on a chance he'll want back.

  • M. Fabián

    0
    4.00

    M. Fabián

    His team's top attacking threat, looking dangerous on the left flank. Scored a good follow-up goal, coming into the box late to clean up a rebound. Faded a bit towards the end of the game.

  • Rafael Márquez Lugo

    3.00

    Rafael Márquez Lugo

    A poor showing for the Chivas man. Failed to finish some decent chances, did not connect on several of his passes, and strayed offside one too many times.
