The Pumas thrashed Querétaro 4-1 at the Universitario stadium and added their first victory after nine long days without being able to win in Liga MX
Juan Ignacio Dinenno was reunited with the goal and Pumas with the victory, the Argentine’s double and the university team won 4-1 over Querétaro, which took them out of a negative streak of nine games without being able to win in Liga MX. The last victory of the Pumas had been on July 17 against Necaxa by the minimum difference and today almost two months later they return to live what it is to add three.
As a positive note apart from Dinenno, we must highlight a Dani Alves who added his first victory as a Pumas player, he was finally able to smile since his arrival at the feline team and as if that were not enough he dressed as an assistant on a night that served as relief for a team in which everything was about worries and that despite the fact that the result is not an important achievement, at least it serves to restore confidence.
At minute 25 Eduardo “Toto” Salvio opened the scoring for the Pumas with a powerful shot that left goalkeeper Washington Aguerre without a chance. The Argentine let off steam with a particular celebration that put those led by Andrés Lillini on top.
At minute 43, Ángel Sepulveda equalized for the visit and the ghosts revived Pumas at home, however they knew how to recover and remain calm under pressure.
It was not until the 62nd minute that the Pumas scored their second goal with a Salvio “on fire” that, in addition to scoring a goal, enabled Juan Dinenno to leave the rival goalkeeper without a chance. The play was reviewed by the VAR and was finally validated.
But not everything was there, because the Brazilian Dani Alves was going to show that his quality was still intact and left Omar Mendoza sitting down to make a center almost as precise as if it had been with his hand, something that Juan Ignacio Dinenno did not miss to add the Pumas’ third and his personal second.
In the 93rd minute, the youthful Jorge Ruvalcaba was present on the scoreboard with the fourth and definitive goal for the team directed by Andrés Lillini. Pumas was forceful against a team that is going through a bad time and that helped them pay off their pending debts with the fans.
Cougars for what’s to come
Although the victory is important for the Pumas and serves as a great relief, the university students remain committed to the last places in the table with 13 points and located as fifteenth. For its part, Querétaro is still in the basement with eight units.
The next Pumas match will be against Toluca next Saturday, September 10, as visitors. Those led by Andrés Lillini must be forceful if he wants to achieve his recovery even if it means dreaming of the playoffs.
