All four ties end level
There is set to be drama in the second legs of the Mexico Liga Premier quarter-final second legs as all of the first legs ended in draws.
The most exciting first leg was between Colima and Inter Playa del Carmen which ended 2-2. Gerardo Madrid nodded home from a corner to put the hosts in front after 32 minutes, before Jose Luis Calderon also headed home from a corner six minutes later to put the visitors level.
Raul Suarez lifted a shot over the onrushing goalkeeper to give Inter Playa the lead but Colima forward Kevin Chaurand scored from the penalty spot with eight minutes remaining to level the scores going into the second leg on Friday.
