The hosts dominated possession in the first half, but they were outplayed thoroughly by Chivas in the second period.

And the visitors broke a scoreless tie with a marker in the 57th minute.

Juan Agudelo, with his back towards goal, played a square ball to Mejía, who unleashed a right-footed blast from 24 yards out and beyond an outstretched Paolo Tornaghi.

Patrick Nyarko levelled the score seven minutes later before Joaquín Velazquez and Agudelo scored within a two-minute span to put the game away for Chivas.

Fire defender Jalil Anibaba's 89th-minute own goal capped the disappointing day.

"The first goal was scored from a ball advancing out of the box and Mejía had a very nice finish off a half-volley," said Tornaghi after the game.
