Chivas 0-1 America at half-time in Estadio Akron. This is not going well for the home side. Nico Castillo gave America the lead in the 3rd minute and Chivas went down to 10 players in the 37th, when Jesus Molina was shown red for a late challenge on Guido Rodriguez. Striker Alan Pulido also left the field just before the break with an injury. Difficult to see a way back for Guadalajara. It's going to take a special second half.
