MEXICO CITY ( Associated Press) – Toluca extended their lead in the first half and became the first finalist in the 2022 Apertura tournament, against an America that saved just a 1-1 draw at home on Saturday and bid adieu to a competition whose The regular phase dominated.

Defender Jorge Torres Nilo put the audience in front in the 29th minute. Midfielder Alejandro Zendejas equalized on 35 with a header.

“The great effort by the board was reflected, with two games left against two great teams fighting for passes,” said Umbridge. “Soccer pays off, Toluca believed in, believed in the project, he gave me time and we’re fighting for a championship.”

The Red Devils extended their playing streak to six without a loss. Five of those doubles have won.

This defeat represents a serious setback for America. The team was the undisputed leader in the regular tournament and looked like the favorites to win their first championship since the 2018 Apertura tournament.

Instead, Argentina, led by Fernando Ortiz, lost in the semi-finals of the second consecutive tournament and would have to wait for another tournament to end their drought.

“Hurt. Shame on the peace of the players who lost their lives and lives on the field,” said Ortiz. “The achievements they have made are well deserved, but the league is like, it sucks, for me it A game is failure”.

After being the leader, America was again out of the final. That’s what happened to him at Apertura last year when he lost in the quarterfinals directed by Argentine Santiago Solari.

The Eagles entered the series against Toluca with 13 wins in 14 games, beating Puebla 11–2. But they were never able to crack the Red Devils’ defense which crippled an offense that scored 49 goals before meeting them.

“If I don’t win the championship, I am one hundred percent responsible,” said Ortiz, who has a one-year contract. “I want to continue … but it is too early to say, we are at pains of not achieving the goal.”

The Red Devils took the lead on the stopped ball. Torres Nilo reached small area and with his chest he sent the ball down a goal defended by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.

America equalized in the same first half, when Zendejas received a cross from the left and added a header that entered the center of the goal from Brazilian goalkeeper Tiago Volpi.

The Eagles continued to dominate the ball in the second half, but were unable to seriously trouble Volpi.
