Guadalajara Update: Matchday 5

By Olivia Cervantes

Five weeks in, Chivas de Guadalajara has yet to earn their first victory in Mexico's Liga MX. Although everything pointed in favor of Mexico's Red-and-White, Chivas earned their fourth draw of the season hosting San Luis on Sunday afternoon in Estadio Omnilife in Guadalajara.

 
Chivas maintained the majority of posession in the first half, with several scoring opportunities. In the 23rd minute, international forward Marco Fabian put Chivas in the lead off a header by Miguel Sabah. Midweek, Fabian went all 90 minutes and scored via penalty in the Mexican National Team's 1-1 draw with Denmark in Arizona. 
 
San Luis came back in the second half determined to earn a draw. In the 55th minute of the match, an error on behalf of Chivas' defense allowed Mauro Matos to score the equalizer for San Luis. Guadalajara fought until the final minutes of the match, with two clear opportunities at goal in the second half.
 
With the point earned, Chivas sit in the 14th spot in the general standings with four points. Up next, Chivas will face Monterrey on Saturday, Feb. 9 in Estadio Tecnologico at 5 pm PT. Monterrey will face Cancun's Atlante hoping to earn their third victory of the season (record of 2-1-1 in Clausura 2013) on Sunday evening.
