Leones Negros overcame Tigres at the Estadio Jalisco on Sunday to win 2-1 and continue to fight for survival in the Liga MX.
A Guido Pizarro own-goal opened the scoring for the hosts on 21 minutes before Rafael Sobis equalized for Tigres in the second-half.
But UDG’s response was nearly instant and Fidel Martinez headed Leones Negros to their second consecutive victory of the season.
Leones Negros’ victory sets up next week’s game between Puebla and Chivas as pivotal in the determination of who goes down to Mexico’s second-tier. A Leones Negros victory against Morelia combined with a Chivas or Puebla defeat would see Leones Negros move away from last-place in the relegation table.
