Clausura 2017 Round 16 Results: Necaxa 1, Puebla 0

In the final game of the weekend, Necaxa’s very slim playoff hopes stayed alive in an otherwise disappointing second half thanks to a 1-0 win over Puebla. Actually it was because of Puebla, as the only goal was an OWN GOAL! It came courtesy of Pablo Miguez in the 54th minute. Otherwise, nothing to really see here because nothing else happened outside of a couple Amarillas. Necaxa now can still make the playoffs next week, but they need a win and a miracle.
