Although Guadalajara looked for the win to try to take advantage in the second leg, they were unable to maintain their superiority on the scoreboard and drew with Monterrey by one goal in the first leg of the Champion of Champions match played on Friday night at the Akron Stadium, so the title will be defined on Monday at the Rayadas' home.

The Rebaño Femenil started the match with a lot of enthusiasm, with the support of the fans who chanted "Chivas! Chivas!" and encouraged them to go on the attack, but after the dynamic start, both teams were locked in a fight for possession of the ball, which made it difficult for the match to get underway and the number of chances on goal were scarce.

Chivas found the opener at 30' with a great goal by Caro Jaramillo, who received a pass into space from Victoria Acevedo, just before entering the area, she beat Rebeca Bernal, faced the goalkeeper Godinez and scored with a touch against the post. After the goal, the Red and White played intelligently and managed the effort in the final part of the first half.

In the second half, Chivas came close to extending the lead in a corner kick that Michelle González 'combed' the ball, but the goalkeeper Godínez tapped the ball that hit the post. Rayadas found the equalizer at 57' from a long cross by Bernal, which Christina Burkenroad headed in from the air in the six-yard box.

The visiting team gave a warning of danger at 78' when Burkenroad controlled in the midfield and shot from the right and Celeste Espino deflected the ball to her left. In the final minutes, Monterrey sought to generate danger in the red and white area, but the Rebaño Femenil defended well to control the attacks from the Monterrey side.
