Boselli scores four as Leon routs Tijuana

Mexico City, Mexico ( - Mauro Boselli scored four goals on Saturday as Leon cruised to a 5-0 rout of 10-man Tijuana, moving the club into third place in Liga MX.

Coming off a 1-1 draw against Tigres last week, Leon started its offensive outburst quickly as Boselli opened the scoring for his club just 23 minutes into proceedings.

After the intermission, Matias Britos made it 2-0 for Leon in the 49th minute and things got even worse for Tijuana two minutes prior to the hour mark when Dario Benedetto was shown a straight red card, reducing the visitors to 10 men.

Boselli then found the net in the 83rd and 85th minutes before finishing the rout with a goal in the second minute of stoppage time for his fourth of the match.

The result sees Leon jump to third place on 30 points, seven behind league leaders America, while Tijuana remains in ninth place on 21 points.

Elsewhere in Mexico on Saturday, Paulo Da Silva and Narciso Mina traded goals as America and Toluca battled to a 1-1 draw, while Alberto Garcia and Angel Sanchez scored in a two-minute span for Atlante in a 2-0 win over Jaguares.

Neri Cardozo's 89th-minute tally proved to be the difference as Monterrey held on for a 2-1 win over 10-man Guadalajara, while Wilberto Cosme scored the only goal of the match in stoppage time to hand Queretaro a 1-0 result against Pachuca.

A Facundo Erpen own goal was all Tigres needed to come away with a 1-0 victory over nine-man Atlas in Saturday's final fixture.

On Sunday, Roberto Monroy and Alfonso Nieto scored second-half goals as UNAM rallied from a 2-0 deficit to earn a point in a 2-2 stalemate against Cruz Azul.
