Torreón, Coahuila.- Cautious and measuring terrain, Santos Laguna and the UANL Tigres started the Grita México Clausura 2022 Tournament, distributing points in the general table after tying with the minimum (1-1) in the Santos Modelo Territory (TSM).
After the Covid-19 did its thing and caused the delay of the match between Guerreros and Felinos, scheduled for last Saturday, January 8, the fans were finally able to enjoy a night of soccer at the Corona Stadium, which had a capacity of 9,377 fans. In addition, uncertainty reigned just before the start of the match, as the fans eagerly waited to see the 11th owner of coach Pedro Caixinha who began a new stage with the Lagunero team and the surprise was to see forward Ignacio Jeraldino among the list.
After the above, the referee Adonai Escobedo González was in charge of directing the actions, giving the initial whistle at 20:06. Before this, the stadium speakers paid tribute to the soccer player Oribe Peralta, after he announced his retirement from professional football: “Your permanent effort allowed you to achieve historical goals, but, above all, seal a career that will never be forgotten by the Santistas. For this you will receive the distinctions of Warrior of Honor and Saint Immortal. Thank you, Oribe! “.
Thus, in the first half, both teams were cautious, in no rush to open the scoring and measuring the bravery of the rival. Try and failure. Although they had arrivals at the goal, none of them caused more effort to the archers Carlos Acevedo, from Santos, and Nahuel Guzmán, from Tigres. Even the fans had lapses of seriousness waiting for the first score to fall, but that would be until the complement because the 45 minutes were completed and the judge sent the players to the locker room. The boos were not lacking.
It seems that the rest was good for the Warriors. At the start of the second half, the number 10 appeared to score Santos Laguna’s first goal: Brian Lozano. The Uruguayan opened the tournament with a powerful right-hand shot that ended up beating goalkeeper Nahuel Guzmán and caused a shower of applause from the stands. At least the board wouldn’t end up blank.
Again they mentioned Oribe Peralta, for whom they asked for a minute of applause. At the same time, the spectators celebrated an early victory for the Albiverdes, without imagining that the feline defender Carlos Salcedo would appear in the final stretch to score the equalizer with a shot that was slightly deflected by a Santista defender and ended up penetrating Acevedo’s goal. .
