Club León scored a dramatic late stoppage-time goal to defeat strugglers Mazaltán and stretch their lead at the top of the Liga MX to four points.

Ignacio Ambríz’s side fell behind when striker Miguel Sansores latched on to Luis Angel Mendoza’s cross to guide the ball past the goalkeeper in the 51st minute.

The Liga MX leaders were behind until the 83rd minute when substitute Jean Meneses clipped in a precise free kick. They pushed for a winner and eventually broke through the stubborn defence of Mazaltán as Ecuadorian Angel Mena found the net from the penalty spot to score his sixth goal in just 11 games.

León have now won their last four matches while their closest rivals Cruz Azul were surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Toluca, despite having 31 shots and having 66% of the ball.

With just one point separating the sides in third and fourth respectively, Club America’s match with Pumas UNAM finished 2-2.

Federico Viñas’ 81st minute penalty secured a point for the home side as Mexican Andres Iniestra was sent off for two bookable offences.

Fifth-placed Tigres won their fourth game in a row, beating Atletico de San Luis 3-0. Former Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac was on the scoresheet, scoring his ninth of the season.
