In Group A, just three points separates the top five. Deportivo Tachira thrashed Portuguesa 3-0 to move on to six points from three games.
In the most entertaining match of the gameweek, Zamora suffered late heartbreak, conceding in the 94th minute as they drew 2-2 against Madeira Club Lara.
Richard Fiueroa scored in the 86th minute to put Zamora 2-1 ahead, adding to his goal earlier in the half. But, dramatically, Anuar Peláez equalised in stoppage time to salvage a point for Madeira Club Lara.
It means Zamora are third with five points from three games in Group A, while Madeira Club Lara are a point and a place behind Zamora.
