I am required by law to mention that Carlos Vela has not been called into the Mexico squad.
Javier Cortes, Alejandro Palacios and Emmanuel Herrera starred for UNAM Pumas as they earned a point at Estadio Azul. Cruz Azul legend Gerardo Torrado was a hero and a goat for his team, winning a penalty and earning a red card.
With an incredible performance at home on Sunday night, Monarcas Morelia dominated Cruz Azul for a 3-0 victory which moves them into the Clausura 2011 Liguilla finals. Unfortunately, Morelia's win was ultimately overshadowed by a massive brawl which took place in the match's closing minutes.
Sunday's results will determine which two teams advance to the Clausura 2011 Liguilla finals.

Morelia must dig out of their 0-2 first leg hole and win by a two-goal margin on Sunday evening at Estadio Morelos.
