LIGA MX CLAUSURA
Gran Final: advantage Pachuca


#2 Pachuca 1, #1 Monterrey 0
Pachuca seized the early advantage in the Clausura championship series with a 1-0 win over top seeds Monterrey Thursday at Estadio Hidalgo.

Franco Jara scored the only goal of the match, in the 61st minute, and denied the Rayados a road goal heading into Sunday's championship final at Estadio BBVA Bancomer.

Jara also challenged netminder Jonathan Orozco in the 26th minute, taking advantage of a misstep by defender Walter Ayovi to get off a rocket shot requiring a sharp reflex save. Jonathan Urretaviscaya also came close to putting Pachuca on the board, but his 56th-minute attempt was saved off the line by defender Efrain Juarez.

Jara finally broke through with a header to the upper left corner, set up by a pass from Erick Gutierrez.
