Toluca came into the weekend as the only team with a chance to clinch a playoff berth. Not surprisingly, they didn’t-they could only manage a 1-1 tie at home against Monterrey. Both goals came just before halftime-Edwin Cardona put Monterrey ahead with a 40th minute score, but Gabriel Hauche got Toluca even just 2 minutes later. The tie keeps Toluca in 1st place for now while Monterrey is 2 points back.
