In the final he scored an own goal but Chivas still won the Interliga Championship.
In his Clausura 2009 debut, he scored 2 goals against Cruz Azul, which ended in a 3-3 draw. Due to poor performance, though, Ochoa was sent to CD Tapatio, the Chivas second-division affiliate. When new head coach Paco Ramirez took rein of Chivas, Ochoa was called back up to the first team.
At the end of the season, Chivas passed on purchasing Ochoa and he was sold by Monterrey to Santos Laguna for the Apertura 2009 season. After being purchased by Santos Laguna, he has been also loaned to Chiapas and Tigres UANL. After his loan to Tigres UANL he returned to Santos Laguna .
