Chivas moved up to fourth in the Liga MX table by beating 10-man Puebla 2-0 at the Estadio Cuauhtemoc on Sunday.
La Franja did well when repelling Chivas’ attack, but a penalty was called in 18th minute for a foul on Angel Zaldivar inside the box. The same Zaldivar stepped up, and scored past Cristian Campestrini to give the visitors the lead.
Things then went from bad to worse two minutes before half-time when Matias Alustiza was sent off for Puebla, leaving La Franja down to ten men.
In the second half, Chivas established full control over the proceedings and they doubled their lead in the 50th minute when Marco Bueno capped off an Edwin Hernandez cross.
Chivas played out the rest of the second half without breaking much of a sweat and could perhaps have won by a greater margin.
Next, Chivas will put their attention to the Copa MX where they will take on Alebrijes de Oaxaca on Wednesday.
