No claws: Leon almost out of the championship


In a game with no emotions, low temperature and poor entry, the Atlas rojinegros could hardly tie with La Fiera de León last night at Estadio Jalisco where the game ended without a goal but the good news is that the foxes continues to add games without to know defeat, with three already, while the Emeralds practically bid farewell to any chance of accessing the Liguilla.

Double digit

This result 0-0 in the colossus of Calzada Independencia left the Atlas still in the penultimate place of the general table, but already with 10 points, reaching the double digit after starting the 2018 Aperture with a decent result for the trait for the fancied Red and black.

Nacho Ambriz and his boys, meanwhile, practically leave on the road the possibility of accessing the Fiesta Grande of Mexican football, with 17 points and although it is tied with Guadalajara, the difference of goals is worse and, therefore, it is placed in the 13º place of the general classification after 15 complete days.

The problems for the Atlas started very early in the game, Argentine midfielder Ricardo Álvarez was injured and had to leave the change in the 8th minute of action to give Brayan Garnica a chance; However Garnica was dismissed from the field in the complement, due to the expulsion of Cristian Calderón in the 66th minute, another situation that suggested that the foxes were having problems in the compromise.

La Fiera, more offensive

This situation tried to take advantage of the box Leon, and for that reason, Ignacio Ambriz sent to players with greater offensive ability, such as Walter González, which added to the presence of Mauro Boselli on the field, would cause greater danger in the goal. José Santiago Hernández.

The minutes continued to advance and Atlas was totally unable to control the game, Leon picked up the ball and started generating goal options, however, they could not specify how dangerous the opportunities were with Mauro Boselli and Walter Gonzalez, while Jose Hernandez already was dressed as a hero in the game.

As much as Leon tried, he simply could not against 10 reds and blacks and that left hassle among the emerald players who were sad because they could not get the three points.

For the next day Atlas will receive Pachuca in the stadium of Jalisco, but now at regular time, Friday at 9:00 p.m.; while La Fiera will host Chivas on Saturday, November 10, at 7 pm at Estadio León.

In the second half, before an unjust expulsion of Cristian Calderón, the Foxes played with only one at the tip.

Holes and Duke

For the first time since leading the Atlas, coach Guillermo Hoyos was observed on the field, having a conversation with the team before starting the game, seeking to motivate his team to win the match against Leon. Jefferson Duque did not work, the clearest failure in the first half.

Pepe was a factor

The team was lost in the midfield in the last 25 minutes but still got to him to get to the point.
