Controversy reigns as Morelia stun Leon, Necaxa survive Queretaro scare

A 98th minute Leon equalizer was controversially disallowed to send Morelia through to the Liga MX 2019 Apertura semifinals, after winning the second leg of the quarterfinal 2-1 in Estadio Leon on Saturday.

Liga MX playoffs: Cruz Azul, Monterrey advance to semifinals

No. 1 seed Cruz Azul advanced to the Liga MX semfinals following a 1-1 draw (3-1 aggregate) with eighth-seeded Queretaro on Saturday night.

Elias Hernandez scored for Cruz Azul in the fourth minute of the match at Estadio Azteca, handling Edgar Mendez's midfield volley and then weaving around traffic to place the ball in the top corner of the net. 

Queretaro earned some solace in the 61st minute when VAR confirmed Luis Romo's header off a corner kick that crossed the goaline before being batted...
