San Luis Shocks Monterrey to Secure Semifinal Spot Against América

Complete failure… Atlético de San Luis snatched the 1-1 (1-2 aggregate) from Rayados de Monterrey to get a place in the Semifinals of the Apertura 2023 where they will clash with América.

A great goal from Vitinho at the beginning of the second half was enough for those led by Gustavo Leal to shut down a Monterrey team that was once again eliminated in a situation they hoped to overcome.

Couldn’t be better. The start of the game for Rayados was better than any fan and even ‘Tano’ Ortíz himself could have imagined.

With a touch of fortune, Funes Mori pushed the ball to make it 1-0 over San Luis after a good assist from Jesús Gallardo that put the Rayados in the Semifinals thanks to the aggregate tie and the best position in the table.

El Mellizo reached 18 goals in Liguillas and left ‘Chupete’ Suazo behind to become even more historic than he already is in the royal institution.

San Luis did not end up getting into the game and in fact suffered a lot in the first half, as some errors resulting from the nervousness of elements like Unai Bilbao almost caused the second goal for those led by ‘Tano’ Ortíz.

In fact, the valley of cold water fell in the final stretch of the first half when Luis Romo pushed the ball on a copy of the first goal, but the VAR reviewed it and annulled the action due to a strict offside by Funes Mori that maintained the difference a goal on the scoreboard by halftime.

Already in the complement, San Luis came out more focused than the locals and took advantage of what they had.

With Jhon Murillo and Vitinho on the field, it was the Brazilian who received the ball in the area, cut a defender in great shape and placed it in the corner to silence the Steel Giant and return the lead on the scoreboard to the Potosinos.

Monterrey went with everything in front, sending ‘Tecatito’ Corona, Jordi Cortizo and Rodrigo Aguirre to the field, but the departures of Funes Mori and Ponchito González left doubts in the Argentine strategist’s decision.

Stefan Medina was close to the second goal when he cut back in the area, but a saving leg was crossed by the shot that came from his left leg.

And the last one was missing and that last one came around the 91st minute. Berterame finished, but Jordan Silva deflected the ball in his attempt to avoid the shot and that caused a save by goalkeeper Andrés Sánchez that prevented the goal that would have given Rayados the pass .

With San Luis’s passage to the Semifinals, the first clash of that instance was defined as Gustavo Leal’s men will face off against André Jardine’s América in a series with the aroma of ‘jogo bonito’.
