The Brazilian Anderson Leite defined this Thursday the Juarez FC win 0-1 over San Luis at the start of the third day of the tournament Clausura 2022 of Mexican soccer. The result raised Juárez to fourth place in the standings with six points, while Uruguayan coach Marcelo Méndez’s San Luis, who suffered the expulsion of Javier Güemez at minute 45+5, remained in penultimate place without points.
The first half stood out for constant interruptions caused by 15 fouls and the injuries of three footballers who had to be substituted, Ricardo Chávez, from San Luis in the 21st minute, and for Juárez the Colombian Fabián Castillo, in the 33rd, and the goalkeeper Hugo González, in 41.
Juárez was close to opening the scoring in the 27th minute with a counterattack that ended with a shot by Cándido Ramírez that grazed the right post of the Argentine goalkeeper Marcelo Barovero and San Luis also missed an opportunity in the 28th minute when the Uruguayan Abel Hernández finished off a ball that González stopped. In the discount of the first time, Guemez received a red card for committing a penalty to Argentine Matías García, who missed the shot, which Barovero stopped.
Despite playing with one player less, San Luis was the team that offered the most in attack in the second half against a conservative Juárez. However, San Luis was inaccurate at the end of the plays. The locals spoiled their good second half with another penalty against Juárez, this time committed by a handball from Bilbao. On this occasion Anderson Leite hit the shot to make it 0-1 at 82.
The third day will resume on Friday with Toluca’s visit to Mazatlán FC. On Saturday, Guadalajara will host Querétaro, León will host Pachuca, América led by Argentine coach Santiago Solari will welcome champion Atlas, and Monterrey led by strategist Javier Aguirre will play Cruz Azul. On Sunday, Pumas UNAM will host Tigres UANL and Santos Laguna del Necaxa. The Puebla-Tijuana duel will subtract from the day, postponed on a date to be confirmed due to cases of covid-19 in the border box.
