Now that the results are known I will elaborate on some of the more interesting games.
First off lets talk about the Pumas-Santos games. Though during the first half both teams tried to take the lead, Santos was under a sort of dry spell since they had not been able to score against Pumas in their home field for a long time. However they soon broke that with an incredible goal by Oribe Peralta at the 57th minute. However Pumas was not really happy losing at home so they started taking back control and the last twenty minutes Pumas did everything they could to take back the lead. They did not pull of the win but they got a draw thanks to Eduardo Herrera Aguirre at the 79th minute. After that the game started to get a bit dirty with a foul commit against Carlos Quintero by Marco Palacios after Quintero crashed with the goalkeeper Palacios, Marco's brother, which resulted in Carlos and Marco both getting a yellow card, leading to Marco being kick out of the game for accumulating two yellow cards.After that Santiago Hoyos received a red card for a foul preventing an attempt on goal. Though it is not the result either team wanted, they still received one point each, putting Pumas in the lead with 11pts.
