Chronicle: America suffers against Necaxa, but achieves the historic ninth victory

Goals from Jonathan Dos Santos and Roger Martínez marked the comeback for the Águilas over Necaxa

America made history tonight at the Victoria Stadium. Fernando Ortiz’s Eagles broke the record for consecutive wins by beating Necaxa 2-1, in a match in which the Azulcrema knew how to suffer, worked as a team and showed why they are the squad that is experiencing the best moment in the MX League.

The hidrocálidos surprised América with a center from the left side by Brayan Garnica for Facundo Batista, who after a series of rebounds finished off with power to beat the goalkeeper.

Brian Rodríguez had a chance almost half an hour into the game when he shot from outside the area and put Luis Malagóń in trouble, who had to put both hands in to prevent his goal from falling.

The feathered ones were better as the minutes went by, leading Malagón to put themselves to the test with a shot by Federico Viñas that scared the home defense and moments later they equalized the electronic score with a goal from Federico Viñas, but this was annulled by a out of place indicated on Jonathan Rodríguez.

The reaction of the feathered ones reached the 57th minute. Álvaro Fidalgo’s entry gave the team another face and, from the outskirts of the area, he filtered for Jonathan dos Santos, who turned and in a half turn beat Malagón by putting the ball in the lower right corner.

The azulcrema team had the capacity to react. The changes in the scheme and the permissiveness of Jaime Lozano’s team led those from Coapa to overcome the result. Miguel Layún, who was having a bad game, started from the right flank, crossed and found Jonathan Rodríguez, who first headed and then put the ball into the net, but the VAR noticed the hand that the Uruguayan made and that annulled the annotation of the azulcrema.

Faced with so many attacks, the red and white defense ended up falling in the 74th minute with a precise center from the left side by Brian Rodríguez to Roger Martínez, who launched himself and scored the comeback goal with his head.

The Olés were present at the Victoria Stadium, with a blue-cream majority, the stadium practically supported the visiting team and it grew by controlling the match and seeing the return of some elements that enjoyed little activity.

The winning record was close to falling in the last minutes. The young Diego Gómez Medina finished pumped from outside the area and this led Óscar Jiménez to push himself and stretch as much as he could to get the ball out of hand.

América won, reached 10 victories and added 31 points, tying Monterrey, but having a better goal difference and one less game. Now, they can dream of finishing the tournament without adding another defeat and in the process try to equal the best mark in the league of 12 consecutive wins.
