FC Juárez is in the fight to get into the Liga MX playoffs and the Ecuadorian has been key to maintaining hope of achieving it. Yesterday they visited one of the favorites, the Club León, where there was a duel of Ecuadorians between Intriago and Ángel Mena. The one who had an impact on the game was the ‘Braves’ player.
At 70 minutes into the game there was a free kick in favor of FC Juárez at the gates of the rival area and Jefferson Intriago was in charge of executing it. The Ecuadorian took advantage of his good punch to put the ball in the angle of the goal of the ‘Esmeraldas’ and sentenced the final 1-0 that gave the three points to the ‘Braves’.
At the moment, FC Juárez is ranked 13 in the standings and is one point behind Necaxa, the team that occupies the last place to qualify for the playoffs. Intriago’s club still has several dates to achieve the playoff spot, but must chain a series of victories to achieve it.
