The UNAM Pumas suffered a last-minute setback in the Concacaf Champions League First Leg Final , finishing 2-2 against the Seattle Sounders of Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States.
The blue and gold team opened with a penalty goal by Juan Ignacio Dinenno at minute 36, who charged very calmly from 11 steps, after receiving a foul inside the area.
For the second half, the one from Rosario, Argentina, scored again with a great header that he connected from the penalty spot, before which the Swiss goalkeeper Stefan Frei could do nothing, who could only watch how the ball touched the nets of his goal.
However, when the university students already felt that they had a good advantage for the remaining 90 minutes, Sebastián Saucedo gave Seattle a hand inside the area, with which the Uruguayan Nicolás Lodeiro made it 2-1 on the scoreboard.
When the referee was preparing to blow the whistle for the end of the match, the central referee marked a new and controversial penalty for the Americans, which Lodeiro himself specified, with which the superiority of the university students was not defined.
Now, the Pumas will have to travel to the Lumen Field Stadium, where they will face the Seattle Sounders in the Vuelta duel, with the historical advantage that, in the last fifteen years, no team other than Mexican has won the Concachampions.
