MEXICO (ESPN) – América and Pumas scored a goal in the first half of the semi-final. The many were Diego Lainez for visitors; while for the locals, Martín Rodríguez scored. The game was characterized by great interventions by Agustín Marchesín and Alfredo Saldívar, this last one has stopped a penalty to Roger Martínez and left the ovacionado.
The local people took over the condition and from the first minute tried to be the protagonist of the match with the possession of the ball; while visitors waited in their court for the mistake that would allow them to fight back with the speed of Diego Lainez.
Pumas had two approaches, but nothing dangerous, pressed from the exit in America, team that was trying to make the ball as soon as half the field.
The strategy worked for the Eagles, took advantage of the speed of Lainez and Víctor Malcorra was improvised as a side, right from the right the team took the ball, evaded his marker to take a powerful shot that ended on 23 . & # 39; before the retreat by Alfredo Saldívar.
After the score, the game has not changed. The azulcremas, already with the goal of the advantage, did not change their position; while the Auriazuli, in their attempt to link, met Agustín Marchesín, who saved his frame. Before a deflected shot by Carlos Gonzalez he stretched his foot to prevent the passage of the round, then launched to face a free kick charged by Pablo Barrera and ended up beating a hand to Felipe Mora.
Once again Lainez was the key to opening the feline defense, now overflown on the left side, sent a retarded center that passed Paul Aguilar, before crashed into a rival, the ball fell back into his booties, he fired new, but Saldivar stopped.
Pumas tied him to the first five minutes of play. Alan Mozo dribbled Luis Reyes, sent a late center, where Martin Rodriguez arrived to send the ball to the nets. Marchesín again took note to Mora, another hand in hand, the ball fell to Gonzalez, who tried to pretend but took the turn.
The VAR seemed to give a penalty to America, after a hand in the area. Roger Martinez was in charge of collecting, but he did so with little power and position, so Saldivar leaned on his right to stop him.
The goalkeeper was a factor so that his team did not receive another voice. He had two good interventions before the shots of Andrés Ibargüen.
Marchesín reappeared, he made a good shot with a spectacular shot before shooting from Matias Alustiza, which was the last game of compromise danger.
