With a screaming final stretch and preventive and red cards flying through the air, Sebastián Cáceres connected the ball with his left arm inside the area at 84 ‘and was sent off due to accumulation of cards, however, Rubens Sambueza missed the penalty that gave the lead by goal difference to the Devils and the scoreboard did not move any more.
On the green of the Akron Stadium, Guadalajara and Pachuca respected each other much more during the 90 minutes, as the tie remained until the last moments, until Jesús Angulo broke the mold and dared into the area with the regulation time almost extinct.
At 90 ‘, the & # 39; Canelo & # 39; found a triangulation with Cristian Calderón, entered the area and shot crossed to beat the goal Oscar Ustari, to provide certainty within the team facing a duel that may be crucial for the coach of the Flock, who outlined a slight smile at the same time that the red-and-white congregation, who requested his dismissal during the first half, celebrated the goal of tranquility.
