Copa MX Week 2 Round-Up: First division teams struggling 
08/07/2014
 
Atlante 2-3 Pumas

Only four of the 14 Liga MX (first division) clubs were able to pick up wins against their Ascenso MX (second division) counterparts in the second week of the group stage of the Copa MX. Veracruz, Pumas UNAM, Queretaro, and Puebla were the only top flight squads to get the three points this week. 


Zacatepec 2-1 Tijuana Xolos 


It did not take much from the home side to get by Club Tijuana in this one. Xolos dominated most of the match but lacked ideas going forward. Zacatepec did well to take advantage of the little they could create to take the win over their much superior rivals. Read more on this match here


Atlante 2-3 Pumas UNAM 


Some much needed confidence for Pumas UNAM with the win over the former first division side Atlante; especially after going down 1-0 so early in the game. Young striker Eduardo Herrera netted himself a first half brace to lead his side to victory and raise his hand for some minutes inside of the domestic league. Despite having the 1-3 lead at halftime Pumas nearly gave it up at the end and allowed the home side to come close to a come back with a penalty kick that made the score 2-3. 


Monterrey 0-1 Correcaminos


A shocking result in Monterrey as the home side were defeated by second division Correcaminos. Monterrey had a superb start to the season winning two consecutive league matches and a one cup game. But last weekend's draw pulled them down from first place and now they suffered this surprising defeat in the cup.
