Miguel Ponce, Chivas defender, put his fingers in Henry Martín’s eyes and the América forward ended up on the grass, with the players of both teams pushing and shoving. It was only yellow.
Jorge Sánchez, defender of the Eagles, struck a rival with the palm of his hand in the middle of another outbreak of anger and was saved from being punished, after receiving a hard tackle from Cristian Calderón, who had to be expelled.
That was the most intense after a week peppered with statements from both sides, and America and Chivas did not hurt themselves on the field with 0-0 after 90 minutes of one more edition of the maximum Classic of Mexican football.
The result corresponding to the tenth date of the Apertura 2021 serves the Eagles to stay for now alone at the head of the championship.
America has 21 points, while the Red Devils accumulate one less and are second.
