Pumas remains undefeated against Rayados but extends its winless streak

MEXICO CITY.- Pumas dominated Rayados but could not demonstrate their superiority on the scoreboard in a 1-1 that extended their draw streak, in Dani Alves’ second game in Mexican soccer.

A great goal from Jerónimo Rodríguez and an own goal from Nicolás Freire was the balance of an auriazul team that plays well, but lacks forcefulness, which has cost him losing chances of winning and becoming the ‘king of the draw’.

Pumas is getting ready for his trip to Barcelona and will return to the Mexican courts until Saturday, August 13, when he hosts America in CU.

The first arrival was for Rayados with a crossed shot by Jesús Gallardo that hit the base of Julio González’s goal post.

Universidad then responded with a header from Juan Ignacio Dinenno that went to one side, in the round trip it was Rogelio Funes Mori’s turn, but González narrowed it down and kept the zero in his goal.

Eduardo Salvio had a couple around half an hour into the game, first he made a space inside the area and overshot his shot, then Dani Alves gave him the ball down the right wing and ‘Toto’ shot a cross into the that the goalkeeper Luis Cárdenas gave him confidence and almost got into the opposite angle.

It was the 43rd minute when Dani Alves sent a cross to the pot for Dinenno, who let the ball roll and delayed for the arrival of Jerónimo Rodríguez, who with a crossed left-footed shot opened the scoring to make the Olympic University vibrate, which registered an official entrance of 26 thousand fans.

When it seemed that Pumas was going into the break with an advantage, Maxi Meza put the ball in the area and the auriazul captain Nico Freire combed it and sent it to his goal in a costly own goal.

The second half had few arrivals until at 68′ Leo López took a corner kick that Freire headed towards Dinenno and the ‘Comandante’ with a broken shot sent the ball into the net to break the scoring block, but the goal was annulled for advanced position.
