Semi-finals will take place at the University Stadium on Sunday
Torreon-With Diego Valdes’ and Eduardo Aguirre’s goals, Santos unexpectedly woke Tigres ahead of schedule and defeated him 2-1 at Coma Caragunera to make it to Gris. The advantage was maintained during the first leg in the quarter-finals for the A21 Ta Mexico.
Guillermo Almada’s team opened the scoring with an excellent serve from the left wing of Omar Campos, and Valdés defeated Carlos Salcedo in 4 minutes. Carlos Salcedo’s defender scored from the back a header.
The Warriors began to play more aggressively at the beginning of the match. From the opening whistle, they walked to the front court and caught the distracting cat defense within the first minute.
Valdes was 12 years old when he showed that he was enjoying a great football moment by passing an incredible filter pass to Mudo Aguirre. He defeated Naver Guzman in the center.
Tigres responded to Carlos Acevedo’s left post with a cross from’Diente’ López. A few moments later, Santos again exploited the negligence of the cat.
Miguel’Piojo’ Herrera advanced on his path and won the first period. Before the break, he could even hit the goal with a header from Juan Pablo Vigón.
The UANL team continued the same trend in the supply, Felix Torres rescued Raguneros from a shot from’Chaka’ Rodríguez.
André-Pierre Gignac had to rewrite the score to 2-1 in 74 minutes, which was one of the best goals of the game. To score the most appealing goal, the French used a rebound from the penalty area to volley and stick at Acevedo’s right goalpost.
Almada, under the immense pressure of the Royals, took out Elton Preciado, and replaced him with Hugo Rodriguez. Herrera grilled all his meat with Rio Fernandez, Carlos Gonzalez.
Santos and Tigres will be competing for tickets to the semifinals of the second round at the University Stadium on Sunday, February 7, in the absence of an away goal-standard.
