2-0: ‘Double’ by Gignac and the Tigers, to the quarterfinals

The French Andre-Pierre Gignac scored this Saturday a ‘double’ for the Tigers UANL won 2-0 at Necaxa and they will qualify for the quarterfinals of the Apertura 2022 tournament of Mexican soccer in which they will face the runner-up, Pachuca.

With his two goals in the playoffs, Gignac reached 28 in the final phases of the Mexican League to tie for third place in the top scorers with the retired Alberto García Aspe; First place is occupied by former Paraguayan soccer player José Saturdino Cardozo, with 43 goals.

The Tigres dominated the first half, despite the fact that at 20 minutes they suffered the expulsion of Javier Aquino, who made an iron to the Uruguayan Facundo Batista.

Although they were the dominators of the duel, the felines only managed to make a dangerous shot when in the 34th minute the Argentine Guido Pizarro shot on goal, a shot rejected by the goalkeeper Luis Malagón.

Meanwhile, Necaxa was unable to take a shot on goal as they opted for the counterattack, even after the red card that Aquino earned. Necaxa was condemned to elimination after suffering the expulsion of Batista in the 50th minute, who stepped on Raymundo Fulgencio from behind.

After a mistake by the Brazilian Samir De Souza, the cats increased their lead. Fulgencio, from the right, crossed a cross into the area that Gignac, with a header, converted to make it 2-0 in the 73rd minute.
