Necaxa succumbed by a score of 0-1 in a defensive inattention against the UNAM Pumas, who in a brave move, already at the end of the game, managed to score the goal that made the difference and gave them the three points in the Victoria Stadium, to give an outstanding jump in the standings and continue dreaming of playoffs.
Guillermo Vázquez aspired to score a victory against his ‘ex’, in his second stage in the rojiblanco team, but he had to settle for nothing, despite the fact that in the first half Necaxa was better.
Although the felines tried to violate the goal of Édgar Hernández with a counterattack game, the locals had the most dangerous in the initial part, with deflected shots or that were well saved by Talavera.
In the second half, it was imperative that both squads put all the meat on the grill, and thus an increasingly tough game was brewing and with opportunities on both sides.
At minute 58, Alfredo Talavera showed off with a huge save, by covering the ball on the line before the header of Juan Delgado.
Similarly, at 75 ‘, Rodrigo Aguirre could not culminate the play in a dangerous necaxist attack, where it was the turn of Alan Mozo to make a great cover to take the goal away from the Uruguayan striker, minutes after entering the field.
But it was the 80th minute, when in an inattention to the hydro-warm defense, a triangulation between cats caused the ball to end at the bottom of the nets, after Juan Pablo Vigón sent a left-footed shot with the outside of the foot.
Necaxa did not expect it and the Pumas won the lottery, since from now on there were no more goals, but Vigón’s goal gave Andrés Lillini’s men three points that put them virtually in tenth place, along with Tijuana, both with 16 points, while the Rays stagnated, already with zero chances of repechage, in ten units.
