The Guadalajara team was much superior throughout the match, except for 10 minutes in the complementary part, when Tigres tried to react. The trident Furch, Chalá, Quiñones, it was a headache for the feline bass chart.
An in-depth service Quinones to Chala dislodged the northern defense and gave rise to the maximum penalty, after lowering Nahuel Guzman to the Ecuadorian striker.
