Morelia salvages 1-1 draw in first leg vs. Pumas

Joao Rojas scored a 73-minute equalizer to rescue a 1-1 draw for Morelia in a hard-fought opening match against UNAM Pumas in the final of the Mexican Clausura tournament.
Francisco Palencia gave Pumas the lead with a fiercely struck drive from outside the area in the 69th minute, but Rojas finished Luis Gabriel Rey's pass to level the scores less than five minutes later.
The return match will be played in Puma's Olimpico Universitario stadium at Mexico City on Sunday.
If the scores are still level after 90 minutes, the match will go to extra time and penalties if necessary.
Pumas are looking for their seventh national title, while Morelia is aiming for its second.
