LIGA MX CLAUSURA
Queretaro, Santos Laguna advance to finals
#8 Santos Laguna 3, #5 Chivas 0 (Santos advances 3-0 on aggregate)
Eighth-seeded Santos Laguna blew #5 Chivas de Guadalajara out of the Liguilla semifinals with a 3-0 road win Sunday at Estadio Omnilife.
Djaniny opened the scoring in the 38th minute, and the Guerreros blew the match open with unanswered goals by Carlos Izquierdos in the 56th minute and Nestor Calderon in the 68th.
The game-winning play started when Javier Abella stole the ball and relayed to Calderon, who in turn sent a diagonal ball to Djaniny. Izquierdos connected with a header, and Calderon caught netminder Luis Michel out of position with a shot from near midfield.
The Guerreros will face Queretaro for the Clausura championship.
#6 Queretaro 2, #7 Pachuca 0 (Queretaro advances as higher seed after 2-2 aggregate draw)
Queretaro blanked Pachuca 2-0 on Sunday at Estadio La Corregidora to advance to their first-ever Liguilla championship series, against Santos Laguna.
Both the Gallos Blancos and the Tuzos scored two unanswered home goals in the semifinal series. Sixth-seeded Queretaro moves forward as the higher finisher on the regular season table.
Angel Sepulveda worked his way through two defenders to open the scoring with a left-footer in the 13th minute. Jonathan Bornstein closed things out in the 48th, running onto long ball from Danilinho and beating netminder Oscar Perez from just inside the penalty area.
