The goalkeeper Rodolfo Cota Christian Calderón was saved by a penalty and the León drew a goalless draw at the Chivas stadium in Guadalajarathis Wednesday at the start of the fourth day of the Opening of the Mexican soccer.

In the first half, León had possession of the ball 59-41, but it was the home team that created danger in the rival goal, with nine shotsthree to the goal, none for the visitors.

Jesús González headed in stoppage time and Cota cleared, in the clearest move by Chivas before the penalty, in which the goalkeeper stopped Calderón’s charge at the close of the opening half.

In the second half, León dominated in midfield and created danger in the area defended by goalkeeper Miguel Jiménezwho in minute 53 saved Chivas, by clearing a shot by Ecuadorian Ángel Mena from a pass by Chilean Víctor Dávila.

In minute 65, defender Luis Olivas was expelled and left Guadalajara with one man less on the pitch León repeatedly entered the left wing, however, he lacked forcefulness against a Guadalajara that defended well and avoided the setback.

With the result the Lion of the Portuguese coach Renato Paiva rose to the fifth seat with one win, three draws and six points, twice as many Guadalajara, fourteenth in the standings.

This Thursday the Monterey Striped of the Argentine striker Rogelio Funes Mori, fourth in the standings, will visit the Queretaro with the purpose of adding three to jump to the first place and on Friday the Mazatlan will receive Santos Laguna and Necaxa will host Juárez FC.
