Monterrey continued with their late push for a Liguilla spot with a 1-0 victory over last-place Morelia at the Estadio Tecnologico on Saturday.

In what was a game between two sides that sit in the bottom half of the table, Dorlan Pabon scored the only goal of the match in the 57th minute to guide the hosts to an important three points in a must-win game.

The victory meant Monterrey are still a few points away from a top-eight finish, but with two games remaining in the season, remain with small hopes of reaching the Liguilla.

Meanwhile, Morelia’s miserable campaign continues as they have failed to record a victory away from home this season.
