Cruz Azul and Chivas got into a very even but hard fought game that ended with them splitting points after leveling 1-1. Cruz Azul took an early lead and looked to have left their current demons, but Chivas came back to tie the game.

A second half was exciting at times, with both teams having chances, but they were cautious as the stalemate continued. In the final minutes, both teams looked to have settle for the tie.

For Coaches Pedro Caixinha and Tomas Boy, things might not look as rosy as expected but both know they avoided the major criticism that a loss would have gotten them.

With the international break now in the horizon, both teams will spend the next two weeks getting ready for their next match, with Cruz Azul having to take on bottom dwellers Veracruz while Chivas will look to go back to winnings against rivals Atlas.
