MEXICO CITY, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- A first-half goal from Chilean forward Victor Davila gave Pachuca their first win of the Liga MX Apertura season on Thursday.
The 22-year-old headed in from a Luis Chavez corner after just six minutes at Pachuca's Hidalgo stadium. The hosts defended resolutely thereafter, aided by a 34th-minute red card to Queretaro midfielder Kevin Escamilla, who was cautioned twice in five minutes for rash tackles.
The result lifted Pachuca to eighth in the 18-team standings with four points from three matches while Queretaro dropped to 14th with just one point.
In Thursday's only other match, Tijuana were held to a goalless home draw by Tigres UANL.
The Liga MX Apertura season began on July 24 after Mexican football was suspended for four months because of the coronavirus pandemic.
