Although their surprise hot streak was snapped last time out, Queretaro wasted no time getting going again after a break last week, welcoming the top defense in Pachuca and making them look anything but it, as the host Gallos Blancos surprised them with a 3-0 shutout win at home. Queretaro needed less than 3 minutes to get on the board with a Yerson Candelo score, then Neri Cardozo made it 2-0 with a goal in the 10th minute. In the 82nd minute, Camilo Da Silva added the final tally less than 2 minutes after entering as a late-game substitute. With the win, Queretaro is only 2 points back of the top spot on the leaderboard for now, but that could change pending later results.
