The second half of the make-up of Week 10 began tonight with Santos hosting Necaxa. The visitors were looking to improve their hold on a top 8 playoff spot but Santos surprised them at home with a 3-2 win. Julio Furch scored the first Santos goal in the 32nd minute, then just before halftime Jonathan Rodriguez scored on a PENAL! to make it 2-0 Santos. Luis Perez scored 2 second-half goals to get Necaxa back in it, but Jorge Tavares scored for Santos in between the goals, ensuring Necaxa would not be able to pull even. The win keeps Santos’ slim playoff hopes alive, helped slightly by their having a game in hand due to their suspended game against Monterrey still to be completed.
