Club America faced Necaxa in another Mexican League game at its home base of Estadio Azteca in Mexico.

The game was proof that Club America is a different team from its era with Salvador Cabanas.

Dario Gandin scored the first goal for Necaxa at 41 minutes and was assisted by Everaldo Vergne de Assis Barbossa.

Daniel Marquez Palacios scored for Club America at 76 minutes with help from Jose Joaquin Martinez and using his head.

Besides the two marvelous ways of scoring goals, the teams were mediocre in their plays.

Club America was worse since they conceded too much too early to an equally disorganized Necaxa.

The attitude of the players appeared to be wanting to go to this game and attempt to finish it. It is this attitude that does not help anyone.

Dario Gandin had an opportunity to score a second goal for Necaxa and the attempt was rejected by the goalie from Club America.

The only thing that was worth something was the referee Juan Genaro Madraino who gave both teams and equal share of yellow cards.

Club America is currently in second place in Group 2 with nine points while Necaxa is in fourth place in Group 1 with six points.

Club America 1-1 Necaxa
