- The verdiblancos were in charge of giving a blow of authority in the MX League and entered the Liguilla after beating a poor Mazatlán 3-0
Mazatlan was left out of the Liga MX Repechage because it was unable to defeat Santos Laguna in what ended up being a 3-0 victory for the Lagunero team at the Corona Stadium. The Sinaloa team needed the three points to enter the zone required to stay alive, but they could not do the task against a team that did not fail in front of goal.
As a result, after these last 90 minutes of Apertura 2022, the locals climbed to third place in the general table, which made Pachuca, who has the tournament’s top scorer in their ranks, remain in fourth place in the Aztec competition.
The first goal of the night fell to 71, as Fernando Gorriarán charged from the penalty spot for a foul achieved by Javier Correa, who was challenged by Efraín Orona, leaving the ball at the left post that beat visiting goalkeeper Nicolás Vikonis.
The Lagunero squad sentenced the match thanks to Marcelo Correa, a player who was responsible for making it 2-0 in favor by scoring in the 84th minute after a great pass from José Ávila. Later, Correa himself again placed his last name on the list of scorers, this time it was after taking advantage of a great clearance by Eduardo Aguirre just two minutes after scoring the second goal of the match.
With this classification to the Liguilla, the fans, managers and players are in search of the seventh title of the lagoon institution within the MX League, although of course, there is still a long way to go to lift the champion trophy.
