Puebla confirmed the relegation battle will be decided in the last week of the season as they earned a 2-0 victory against Leon at the Estadio Universitario BUAP on Saturday.

Jose Guadalupe Cruz’s men remain penultimate in the relegation table and need a combination of results to go their way to preserve their status in the top-tier of Mexican soccer.

La Franja started well, and Matias Alustiza gave the hosts the lead from the penalty spot after only 13 minutes.

Five minutes from the break, Alustiza doubled the lead as the the home-side held on in the second-half to obtain a vital victory in their bid for survival.
