Culiacan, Mexico, Sep 6 (efe-epa).- Dorados de Sinaloa defeated Veracruz 1-0 on a second-half goal by Ecuadorian forward Vinicio Angulo to wrap up a berth in the knockout stage of the Apertura 2018 Copa MX, the latest edition of Mexico's soccer cup competition.

Angulo's goal in Wednesday night's match at Estadio Banorte in Culiacan came in the 56th minute off a pass from midfielder Alonso Escoboza.

With the victory, Sinaloa finished second in Group 7 behind Club America and has qualified for the tournament's Round of 16 as one of the seven best second-place teams.

In other final-round action Wednesday night in the Copa MX's group phase, Tapachula also booked a spot in the knockout stage out of Group 9 when it went on the road and routed fellow second-division club Atletico San Luis 3-0 in San Luis Potosi.

Christian Bermudez, Diego Diellos and Oscar Sanchez all scored for Tapachula, which finished second in its group with five points, two fewer than Tigres UANL.

Also Wednesday, Toluca (already eliminated) defeated group-winner Tijuana 1-0 in Group 2; Group 8 teams Oaxaca and Morelia, meanwhile, were both eliminated from the Copa MX after playing to a 1-1 draw.

That leaves the 16th and final knockout stage berth to be determined in one last Group 6 match on Sept. 13 between host Zacatepec and Atlas at Estadio Agustin "Coruco" Diaz.

Zacatepec needs to win to advance to the Round of 16, while Atlas can move through with either a victory or a draw and could still be the Group 6 winner (ahead of Cruz Azul) if it wins that contest by a three-goal margin.
