Intractable America beat Chivas 0-3 and was one step away from the quarterfinals of the Concachampions – La Opinión

lthe Eagles of America They reaffirmed the great moment they are going through to win at home 0-3 to the Chivas del Guadalajara that allows them to be one step away from the quarterfinals of the Concachampions.

A resounding victory where the Águilas scored goals from naturalized Mexican Julián Quiñones, the Chilean Diego Valdés and Henry Martin, They took advantage of the excessive respect that their rival showed them to pass over their staunch opponent.

America in this way added victory 80 in the duel held this Wednesday at night at the Akron Stadium in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Concachampions and where in the history of this rivalry they have faced each other 213 times in official games.

A result that at first, for some may seem excessive, but at the end of the day, it demonstrates the tactical errors made by Guadalajara’s technical director, the Argentine Fernando Gago, by placing an inexperienced central defender like Eduardo Torres in the starting lineup.

This variant wanted to contain América’s great offensive by playing with a line of three defenders central with Antonio Briseño and Jesús Orozco Chiquete, as well as Alan Mozo and Mateo Chávez on the wings.

This formation confused the Guadalajara players, Because with Torres as the third center back, Briseño and Orozco, they did not know how to mark the arrivals of Henry Martin, Christian Calderón, Alejandro Zendejas, Diego Valdés and Julián Quiñones.

Obviously being more concerned about avoiding the arrivals of América, both Erick Gutiérrez without the rhythm of other games and Víctor Guzmán, nor they had a way of connecting with Roberto Alvarado, Fernando Beltrán and Ricardo Marín, who They had practically no offensive force in the first half.

Despite the fear shown from the initial scheme of Argentine coach Fernando Gago, the score in the first half came out cheap in the first half with just one goal through a penalty scored by Julián Quiñones that kept Chivas in the game.

But in the second half, after the expulsion of young Fernando Torres in the 62nd minute, he opened the way to a more comfortable victory for América, since with more spaces in front, the Chilean Diego Valdés appeared in the 70th minute to make it 0- 2.

Even with this score, the eleventh Guadalajara wanted to make a final effort, taking advantage of the presence of the Mexican-American Cade Cowell on the field, as well as Javier Chicharito Hernández and Fernando “Oso” González, but the damage was done and Henry Martin’s score at the minute 90+4 was only the consequence of a forgettable night for the Sacred Flock in their own Akron Stadium.
