Toluca 5, Estudiantes 0
Five different players scored goals as Toluca ripped apart Estudiantes at Estadio Nemesio Diez on Sunday.
Toluca moved ahead of Queretaro and into second place in the Group 1 table as their ascent towards a playoff spot continued in full force. Toluca failed to win until their sixth game of the season but now have a respectable 5-3-5 record, good for 20 points.
Estudiantes, meanwhile, continued their lousy season. The club's modest three-game winning streak vanished in Toluca's high altitude.
Carlos Esquivel opened the scoring in the 13th minute but Toluca did their real damage later in the half. Osvaldo Gonzalez and Antonio Naelson "Zinha" scored one minute apart. Zinha set up Gonzalez's goal before scoring his own.
Then, Estudiantes' Jose Ramon Partida was sent off late in the first half for picking up his second yellow card.
Antonio rios and Diego Novaretti scored in the 55th and 59th minutes, respectively, as Toluca put the game away.
Jaguares 3, Santos 0
Jaguares pulled off the biggest upset of the weekend in a stunning victory at Territorio Santos Modelo.
While the win itself was an upset, to have won in such easy and convincing manner made it more shocking.
Danilinho set up Jackson Martinez in the 10th minute as Jaguares struck early. Santos' Uriel Alvarez scored on his own net in the 29th minute to give Jaguares a two-goal margin.
Late in the game, Danilinho scored for Jaguares for the final margin.
The win had an interesting national team subplot. Veteran Oscar Perez, bound for national team duty, outperformed Oswaldo Sanchez, who was left out in the cold by Mexico manager Javier Aguirre.
