Adalberto Penaranda struck back for La Guaira five minutes before half-time but Caracas wrapped up a three-goal win when Jhonder Cadiz scored in the 89th minute.

Caracas moved to 17 points, with Deportivo Tachira missing their chance after a 3-0 loss at Atletico El Vigia.

Tucanes rose to within three points of top with a 1-1 draw against Deportivo Petare, while Mineros de Guayana dropped to sixth with a 3-0 loss to Llaneros de Guanare.

Zulia cruised to a 3-0 win against Aragua, Atletico Venezuela trumped Yaracuyanos 2-1 and Deportivo Lara thrashed Trujillanos 4-1.
