At 30 minutes, Rogerio launched a cross into the ‘Máquina’ area and Pablo Aguilar cleared it, however, the ball remained in the air. Immediately, the goalkeeper Sebastián Jurado came out and hit the ball with his fists, but the danger of scoring was still not over.
Seeing that the goalkeeper did not return to his goal, Fabio Álvarez put in a powerful shot. However, Luis Abram, who was on the line, cleared the ball to the joy of the Cruz Azul fans.
