The second leg of the semifinals of the Apertura 2023 Liga MX Championship between Tigres and Pumas ended with the team from the autonomous university of Nuevo León securing their place in the final after a 1-1 draw on the field of the Universitario Stadium. He won the series with an aggregate score of 2-1, and the loser was mocked on social media.
Although Universidad Nacional took the lead through a header from Uruguayan striker Gabriel Fernández and left the Pumas dreaming of a final against América, their biggest rival, Juan Pablo Vigón, equalized shortly afterwards and sparked madness in the Volcán, allowing the Tigres to maintain their lead and use it as they wished. Strive for a double championship.
The Pumas will go on vacation without completing their return mission, as they did the previous week against Guadalajara. Coach Antonio Mohamed used everything possible but came up short. At the start, he lost to Jesús Molina due to injury, while Pablo Bennevendo was sent off for a foul on Diego Lainez.
Now the Pumas will have to wait until they end their streak without winning the Liga MX title, which turns 13 next May, making them the “big” club that has gone the longest without winning a championship. The other side of the coin is experienced by Tigres, who will now try to win the title on the field of guilas, as they did in Chivas’ Akron the previous semester.
LOS PUMAS LOS PUMAS LOS PUMAS SON CAMPEONES DE LA COPA “PASIÓN Y AGUANTE” POR DECIMOSEGUNDO AÑO CONSECUTIVO
