Chivas strengthened their hopes for survival with a 1-0 win over Toluca at the Estadio Omnilife on Sunday evening.

Omar Bravo scored the only goal of the game in the 47th minute to secure an eight-point advantage over Puebla, last in the relegation table.

Jose Manuel de la Torre made several changes to the side which defeated Chiapas midweek in the Copa MX, giving Omar Bravo the start over Erick “Cubo” Torres once again.

In the 23rd minute, it was Omar Bravo who had Chivas’ first chance of the game after he headed a Marco Fabian cross at the Toluca goalkeeper, Alfredo Talavera.

After half an hour of play, Chivas came close again with Talavera making a great save from a Carlos Fierro header.

Chivas strengthened their grasp on the match in the second-half and took the lead on 47 minutes.

Marco Fabian combined a one-two perfectly with Omar Bravo, who poked the ball past Talavera for the go-ahead goal.

Toluca had several chances to equalize, and their best chance may have gone begging when Marco Bueno couldn’t get on the end of a dangerous Victor Montaño cross.

At the final whistle, Chivas held on to a win that brings them closer to salvation and moves them to third-place in the Liga MX table.
