Mexico City – León became the first finalist of the Guardianes 2020 tournament, having beaten Chivas 1-0 (2-1 overall).
Without giving a good game, the team led by Ignacio Ambriz did enough to win and go to the final.
Chivas, although he tried, could not arrive, apart from a few sparks which were well stopped by Rodolfo Cota.
The only score of the match came in the 17th minute by Joel Campbell after receiving an assist from Ángel Mena.

The bad news was presented to Chivas as they found themselves without two important men in the attack: José Juan Macías and Alexis Vega, who left the exchange due to the discomfort.

In the end, these absences prevented Chivas from having potential upfront, which was reflected in the final score.
The clearest play of the herd was a mid-range shot from Miguel Ponce which came very close to the left corner.
With the victory, León is just waiting for the rival he will face, which will be defined in the return leg of the semi-final between Pumas and Cruz Azul.
Everything indicates that it will be La Maquina because they won the first leg 4-0 against the team led by Andrés Lillini.
