On Sunday, Chivas and ATL were held to a 1-1 draw at Estadio Akron. Chivas were looking to get back their winning ways, following a previous defeat to Mazatlán. ATL were able to continue their winning streak after a 3-1 win against Querétaro in their last match. As it stands, Chivas are currently 17th with 6 points from 8 matches, while ATL sit in 12th, with 8 points from 8.

After an uneventful first half, ATL took the initiative in the second half, with a goal from Julian Quinones at the 63 minute mark. In the end though, their celebrations were kept brief, as Carlos Cisneros equalised for Chivas at the 84 minute mark and saw the match end 1-1.

Substitutions for Chivas included Santiago Ormeno, Carlos Cisneros, Roberto Alvarado, Pavel Perez and Cristian Calderon for Angel Zaldívar, Jesus Sanchez, Isaac Brizuela, Alan Torres and Luis Olivas, repectively. ATL replaced Gaddi Aguirre, Edison Flores, Diego Zaragoza and Edyairth Ortega with Anderson Santamaria, Julio Furch, Jonathan Herrera and Angel Marquez.

The referee booked from Chivas Jesus Sanchez and from ATL Anibal Chala, Anderson Santamaria, Edgar Zaldivar and Emanuel Aguilera. Both teams also had a sending off, with Miguel Ponce for Chivas and Luis Reyes for ATL.
