Solari’s America draws with the Pumas and adds its third game without winning


Mexico City, Feb 26 The Eagles of America led by Argentine coach Santiago Solari tied this Saturday without goals against Pumas UNAM for their third game without winning on the seventh day of the Mexican Clausura tournament. The string of winless matches for Solari’s team is divided into a 2-1 loss against Mazatlán FC in a pending match on matchday two and a 1-3 defeat against Pachuca on matchday six. The result with the felines kept America in penultimate place in the Clausura standings with five points, while the Pumas were in sixth place with 11 units. The Pumas started the game with a shot on goal in the 3rd minute by Argentine Juan Ignacio Dinenno, which was saved by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa. The Eagles tried in minute 12 with the Chilean Diego Valdés, who from the crescent made a low shot that goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera deflected for a corner kick. After this good start for both sides, the match fell into a lethargy of imprecisions and lack of offensive actions until in minute 44 Dinenno from mid-distance finished off a ball with his right leg that passed near Ochoa’s right post. Both teams came out in the second half not to lose and prioritized defensive play over attack. It was not until minute 75 that Salvador Reyes, from América, managed a shot on goal in the complement that was rejected by Alfredo Talavera, the only dangerous thing for the Águilas in a second half in which they did not take advantage of playing with an extra footballer from the 81, when Brazilian Diogo De Oliveira was sent off. Earlier, San Luis defeated Monterrey 0-2 and Puebla regained the leadership of the Clausura by beating Chivas de Guadalajara 2-3. Matchday seven kicked off on Thursday with Pachuca’s 3-1 victory over Mazatlán FC and a 1-1 draw between Querétaro and Toluca. On Friday, León beat Necaxa 0-1, Tigres UANL beat Juárez 2-3, and Tijuana beat champion Atlas 2-0. The day will end on Sunday with the Cruz Azul-Santos Laguna duel.
