America lacks game, a lot of game, but while recovering troops he is adding points and discovering players who can give him solutions. It does not fill the eye, it does not captivate, it wins by isolated actions and not by a showy game. He lacks the spark of Sebastián Córdova and the instinct of Henry Martin, but despite the losses he was able to win 2-1 over Necaxa.
It was a rough game for America, which cannot flow, it is difficult for it to develop dangerous actions, it has the ball and circulates it, recovers it and starts again; His problem is that he does not progress in attack, he does not find solutions and his people do not show himself that they should give him that quota of outburst.
As if that were not enough, he has moments of trouble in defense, but It saves him that Óscar Jiménez is a guaranteed goalkeeper and that at some point in the game a spark appears, but it is America, a team that lives off the gusts and not a game that gives it identity.
And it is that Necaxa was a team that was planted seriously in the Azteca Stadium, the Ray They knew that their options to add went through the defensive order, so they gave few spaces to the azulcrema, especially they cut off the access roads to the game from the outside, neither Lainez nor Suárez achieved an unbalanced actionNor was Fidalgo able to take control of creation.
And above, America received several notices, with the party stuck in the center of the field, the Ray they cheered up a bit more. About half an hour they made the yellow defense suffer, and brought out Jiménez’s conditions; the goalkeeper covered, first, a shot from Sepúlveda, then deflected a mid-distance shot from Aguirre, and fortune smiled at him in a corner, when a Sepúlveda header stayed on the post.
The Coapa painting swallowed hard, when when he felt more overwhelmed, he found a moment of clarity, Reyes, Lainez and Fidalgo joined on the left, the three men who cover that plot showed their coordination. Álvaro leaked for Mauro, who was finally able to win an individual duel, sent a low center, and Salvador appeared in the zone of nine, yes, the left winger hit the ball safely and made it 1-0 in minute 39.
America won with very little, once again the practicality of the Solari team shone, which lacks a touch of spectacularity. Necaxa’s response was almost instantaneous, but again the Rays ran into an extraordinary Jiménez who kept his bow intact.
Little changed the script for the plugin. A lot of effort in the center of the field for a tiresome game, which only had a few bursts. Of course, the clearest was again from the Rayos when Escoboza crossed and Zendejas launched himself to finish off with his head, but the ball went right to Jiménez’s site.
But Necaxa finally found a way to hurt, Rodrigo Aguirre took the ball in the middle of the court, advanced without someone getting in his way, shot from medium distance Jiménez rejected, but the ball came out at the feet of Zendejas who, now, did not forgive. The Rayos deserved it and tied it at 68 ‘.
America went for the reaction, stumbling or whatever, but it had to go for the win, Solari was adjusting, and the team found the advantage goal again. Reyes, with a good game, sent a cross from the left (already playing as a midfielder) and Álvaro Fidalgo headed in the area, the Spanish’s first goal in Mexico and it was worth three points.
The Eagles are becoming strong at home, for now, triumphs are loves and these points are ground gold, but it has a great slope to improve its performance in general, because it is still not a team that fills the retina.
