Clausura 2017 Round 10 Results: Cruz Azul 2, Toluca 0

The final game of the made-up Round 10 tonight saw Toluca with a chance to all but lock up a playoff berth, but in quite a surprise result they were tripped up at home by lowly Cruz Azul 2-0. The game was scoreless at halftime, thanks in part to Fernando Uribe botching a PENAL! attempt in the 42nd minute-a not-so-good kick went just wide of the post. In the second half, Angel Mena put Cruz Azul on the board in the 57th minute, and Francisco Silva made it 2-0 in the 79th minute. Despite the loss, Toluca remains in first place but their postseason plans are all but on hold until after Round 15.
