Chivas stumbles as Mexican season opens

One of the favorites to win the title, Guadalajara Chivas, stumbled to a 1-0 loss against Atlante on the opening weekend of Mexico's Clausura season.
Defending champions Tigres also got off a slow start with a 1-1 draw against Cruz Azul.
In other results, last season's runner-up Santos drew 0-0 against Pachuca, America defeated Queretaro 2-0, and Toluca defeated Estudiantes Tecos 3-1. Also, Monterrey won 2-1 against Jaguares, Morelia and Tijuana drew 1-1, San Luis defeated Pumas 1-0, and Puebla drew 0-0 against Atlas.
Chivas went behind a minute before halftime to a goal from Michael Arroyo of Ecuador. Peruvian forward Andres Mendoza drove into the penalty area and squared the ball to Arroyo, who tapped into an empty net to give Atlante the victory.
