Clausura 2017 Round 6 Results: Toluca 1, Veracruz 0

Today marked Centenario Toluca in Toluca, celebrating the Toluca Football (Soccer) Club 100-year anniversary, and it was a joyous celebration in the stands and on the field as the hosts re-took the top spot in the standings with a 1-0 win over Veracruz. The lone goal came on a Fernando Uribe header at close-range in the 22nd minute. The play got heated in the second half as the teams combined for 7 Amarillas after none in the first. One of note on the Veracruz side-Kristian Alvarez now has 4 Amarillas in just 6 games, among the most in the league if not the most. The next one he gets will mean an automatic 1 game suspension for 5 Amarillas in a tournament.
