The “Rayados” of Monterrey, who have two games pending, reached 20 points to rise from eighth to fifth place overall.

The match played at the Olympic University Stadium in Mexico City had few scoring opportunities, and it was not until the 93rd minute when Alfonso González scored the winning goal for Monterrey with a shot inside the area, hitting the ball close to the left post after controlling a center sent by Luis Romo from the right sector.

Despite the defeat, Pumas remains in third place with 21 points.

The day will be completed later when Atlético de San Luis plays against Necaxa.
