Tigres embittered Pumas’ victory with a goal from Gignac in the last minute

Unexpected end was experienced this Wednesday in the meeting between Pumas and Tigres. When everything seemed headed for a victory for the university team, the Monterrey team ended up drawing a one-goal tie at the last breath.

At the Olympic University stadium, the locals thought they were going to take all three points thanks to a goal from Argentine Juan Ignacio Dinneo. However, in stoppage time, Frenchman André-Pierre Gignac converted the equalizer.

Pumas dominated practically the entire first half. He took possession of the ball, did not pass danger in the defensive zone and had the best options in attack. The reward was achieved in the 47th minute, after Dinenno sent the ball into the back of the net with a cross shot.

But, the locals did not know how to take advantage of the advantage and from 1-0 they began to give up control of the commitment. That was how Tigres began to create danger in the opposite goal and scored the equalizer in minute 96, after a header by Gignac.

Thus, in this match advanced by the sixteenth day of the Apertura-2022 tournament of Mexican soccer, Pumas missed the victory and in the end he was left with 9 points in the standings. While those from Monterrey are third with 20 units.
