Blue Cross He is one game away from tying the 12 consecutive wins for Necaxa and León, the maximum streak in Mexican soccer. However, he must beat Chivas, a team that has cut positive streaks in recent years at the international and national level, as it was the team that ended the emeralds’ winning streak and reached victory 13 to beat the Rays.
We present the most important streaks that Guadalajara has broken as the executioner of teams with consecutive victories.
He took away the unbeaten 19 years and 30 games from Sao Paulo in the Copa Libertadores
Chivas He arrived as a victim to the group stage match of the Copa Libertadores against Sao Paulo, a team that at that time was the world champion and had a 19-year streak and 30 games without losing at the Morumbí stadium in the Conmebol tournament. His last fall as a local, in that contest, occurred on May 8, 1987 against Colo Colo.
Guadalajara visited the Brazilians on April 5, 2006. The South Americans took the lead with Aloísio’s goal after 13 minutes of play. Sergio Santana tied it at 45 ‘and the surprise was consummated at 80’ with a score by Diego Martínez to seal the 1-2 in favor of the Guadalajara team and end one of the most dominant streaks in South America.
It prevented León from having the streak with the most consecutive wins in Liga MX
The rojiblancos will face a similar panorama to the one they already experienced in the Clausura 2019. At that time, León boasted 12 consecutive victories, a streak to which he aspires to reach Blue Cross in case of exceeding Chivas. Reaching 13 wins would put the Esmeraldas as the team with the most wins in a row in the same tournament in the history of Mexican soccer.
León entered the game as leader with 38 points; while Chivas it was 15th with 15 units. Michael Pérez opened the scoring at the Akron Stadium at 55 ‘, but five minutes later José Juan Macías appeared to make the tie. Twenty minutes from the end, Alan Pulido was in charge of making the final 2-1, with which he prevented the emeralds from registering a new record in Aztec football.
It culminated in León’s streak of two years and 31 games undefeated at the Nou Camp in the regular phase
In the current semester, Chivas already cut a positive streak. It was on the fifth day, on February 8, against León, a team that had two years and 31 games without losing in the regular phase of the MX League, after the defeat at the Nou Camp on January 21, 2019, when Xolos added 24 wins and seven draws at home.
The visitors surprised the current Mexican soccer champion with a 1-3. Jesús Sánchez began to write the fall of the streak with both at 22 ‘. At 44 ‘, José Juan Macías made the second. The esmeraldas approached 63 ‘with an own goal by Antonio Briseño, but Alejandro Mayorga finished it with seven minutes remaining.
