The Chileans Pablo Parra and Diego Valdés were present in the markers that gave the go to the quarterfinals of the league of the MX League Opening Tournament. Puebla surprisingly dispatched León and Santos Laguna achieved a great victory over Tigres.
A positive coincidence for the coach of the Chilean team, Martín Lasarte, is the one who personify Pablo Parra and Diego Valdés. It is that the two national representatives in Liga MX were figures and they scored two goals at the start of the Apertura tournament playoffs.
All this just after Machete announced the call for both of them for the international friendly tour that La Roja is planning to play in December, against Mexico and El Salvador in the United States.
First it was the turn of the former player from Ñublense, Coquimbo Unido, Universidad de Chile and Curicó Unido, who spliced a center at minute 30 and partially equalized the score in Puebla’s victory over León (2-1), which featured Víctor Dávila and Jean Meneses as headlines.
In this way, the camotero team has a good chance to hit the emerald team, which was champion in 2020 and took third place in the regular phase of this season.
Then it was Diego Valdés’ turn at Santos Laguna-Tigres. The national midfielder stood out with a header to score 1-0 and defeat Nahuel Guzmán (4 ‘) and the assistance of Eduardo Aguirre’s 2-0 partial (12’). André Pierre-Gignac discounted for 2-1 final.
The Audax Italiano youth squad is going through a great moment, as he managed to win the approval of the fans of the Chilean team and constantly reach the goal in Mexican football, a history that shows the rise of the player.
Valdés was replaced by Ignacio Jeraldino in the final minutes, already to ratify a high-value victory. Puebla and Santos Lafuna will play the rematches as visitors next Sunday, to dream of a ticket to the semifinals.
Both teams can meet in the next round and in case one of the Chileans advances to the final, they will not be able to be in the summons of the Chilean team for the friendlies that will play in December against Mexico and El Salvador.
