Cruz Azul get last minute win over Pumas in controversial fashion

After a couple of even minutes with not much from either side, Pumas had the first opportunity when a left footed shot by Juan Ignacio Dinneno just went inches wide from the post.

Cruz Azul wasted a great opportunity after a mistake by Johan Vasquez allowed Orbelin Pineda to make a cross to Roberto Alvarado, but his shot went wide.

Pumas had an opportunity when a shot by Carlos Gutierrez almost squeaked by after being deflected by Julio Cesar Dominguez, but Corona made a great save.

Pumas later had a good opportunity when the Cruz Azul defense failed to hold on to the ball and gifted it to Favio Alvarez, but his shot went right to Corona’s arms.

Cruz Azul could have had a good opportunity when off a free kick, Juan Escobar rose to head the ball back into the area, but luckily for Pumas it fell to a defender.

The controversy of the play was around where Escobar had fallen, supposedly because of a foul by Johan Vasquez who extended his arm and hit the Cruz Azul player in the face.
