Mexico City- Argentine forward Julio Fuchs scored from the bench today. Atlas beat Tigres 1-0 to qualify for the Mexico Claustura Championship.
Furch replaced compatriot Milton Caragglio into the field in the 77th minute. He used Argentina’s Victor Malcorra’s cross to score and scored 78 in the game’s only goal.
This is only the second goal of the Furch Championship. He was injured in Fox’s first season.
Atlas, ranked seventh in the regular season standings, will have to wait for the results of the next three playoff games to meet with opponents in the next stage.
With the victory, the sports team failed to beat Tigres for eight consecutive victories. They have not beaten Tigres since January 2017.
For Tigres, failure means the end of the era when their Brazilian coach Ricardo Ferretti was sitting on the bench.
After 11 years in office, Ferretti announced that he will leave the position of coach of felines at the end of Clausura.
Since the 2010 Apertura competition, Ferretti has been leading Tigres and leading them to five league championships and runners-up in the Copa Libertadores (2015) and the Club World Cup (2021).
Tigres monopolized the ball in the first half, but there was no depth. Only the Frenchman André Pierre Guignac, who scored the goal, scored a goal.
In addition, the college student was knocked again from a powerful shot by Gignac at the age of 62, and Colombia goalkeeper Camilo Vargas hurriedly rejected the ball.
When the game was preparing for a penalty shoot-out, Malcorra reached the baseline on the left and passed the ball to the small area, where Furch slid to the baseline.
Tigres’ odds were close to average, and Carlos Gonzalez’s header from Paraguay was rejected by Vargas with a corner kick.
