Mexico City, Mexico (SportsNetwork.com) - Hernan Burbano scored twice inside the opening 25 minutes on Saturday to lift Tigres to a 4-2 victory over defending Clausura champions Leon.
Burbano needed only 12 minutes to open the scoring for Tigres, and he completed his double in the 23rd minute to give his side the early two-goal margin.
Leon pulled one back through Jose Lopez four minutes later, but they failed to capitalize on the brief momentum swing as Emanuel Villa made it a 3-1 game just one minute before the intermission.
Mauro Boselli netted for Leon in the 57th minute to make it 3-2, but again the defending champions couldn't come all the way back as Juninho restored Tigres' two-goal lead in the 66th minute.
The result moved Tigres into third place in Liga MX with four points from its first two matches, while Leon has yet to find its footing in the new season, dropping both of its opening two fixtures.
