Luis Montes and José Ramírez scored goals in the second half and León came back on Monday night to beat Santos 2-1 in the last match for the 16th round of the Mexican Apertura tournament.


Argentine Julio Furch put the visitors in front at 40 minutes, but Montes tied at 51 and Ramírez turned the board around at 71, taking advantage of a good pass from Ecuadorian Ángel Mena.
