Blue Cross received this Saturday, October 17, Tigers at the Azteca Stadium, in a spicy duel corresponding to matchday 14 of Guardians Tournament 2020 from Liga MX. The feline team took the victory and climbed to the second position of the table; likewise, he approaches the leader of the championship, León de Pedro Aquino.
Yoshimar Yotún he was present at the duel and was the starter; However, he retired in the second half and it was noted how indispensable La Maquina is, since since his departure the blue team became weaker in the midfield; especially after the first goal of the visit.
The first half was similar to a boxing match, as both rivals met; that is to say, they were hardly hurt. Nueva León’s team was asleep in the first section and only had one shot on goal, which was in the 33rd minute and did not create danger for Corona.
On the other hand, Guido Pizarro was injured and had to be replaced by Jordan Sierra eight minutes into halftime. It was a hard blow for the ‘Tuca’ Ferretti team because he is the captain and cornerstone at the wheel. For the complement they came out with the same energies.
Nahuel Guzman more and more important with his saves. The locals appealed to shots from long distance and from all over the field, but the Argentine goalkeeper was always attentive.
The match took a radical change in the 60th minute when the main judge went to the VAR to observe a play in which the Tigres goalkeeper raised his leg over an opposing player in the area after catching the ball. He charged a penalty and warned him with yellow.
However, the show of the former Newell’s player began, as it made Jonathan Rodríguez nervous and he missed his shot. This had a positive impact on the felines, who went on the attack and put the balance on their side.
At 68, Nicolas Lopez He took a bombshell inside the area and left goalkeeper Corona without reaction so that against all odds, Tigres would take the lead on the scoreboard at Azteca, when they had practically no clear goal option.
Ten minutes later the French Andre Pierre Gignac he scored the second by changing the direction of a shot from his teammate Sierra. 2-0 and it was history over despite the fact that those from Cruz Azul sought the discount, the result would not move. Huge victory of Tigers out of home.
