Soccer returned in Mexico. After being suspended Necaxa vs. Toluca due to bad weather in Aguascalientes, Mazatlan vs. Puebla kicked off the Apertura 2022 tournament of the MX League. Duel where the ‘Franja’ gave the surprise visit on the first day and took over the first three points of the contest.

Puebla came out willing to keep the victory, because barely at minute 5, he opened the scoring through Israel Reyes, who took advantage of a rebound in the Mazatlán area. And although he was ruled offside for a brief moment, the VAR endorsed the goal minutes later.

La Franja put their foot on the accelerator and seemed to sentence the match in the first 15 minutes, after Fernando Aristeguieta beat goalkeeper Vikonis. The Venezuelan received Mancuello’s pass and, after a bad rejection by the goalkeeper, scored the second of the game.

With a two-goal lead, Puebla slowed down a bit. Something that was taken advantage of by the cast of Gabriel Caballero and after the break, Eduard Bello scored a header (47 ‘) a goal that excited the local team. But the joy did not last long, because the local defense failed too much and at minute 57, Martín Barragán found the ball and with a strange shot, he scored the third of the night.

With the third entry, Puebla became the dominator of the match, while the ‘Cañoneros’ looked for a surprise that Antony Silva’s goal never came. And the cherry on the cake was placed by Amaury Escoto, who returned from a serious injury and managed to inflate the Mazatlan nets.

To finish, already with the commitment defined, the debutant Gabriel López from Mazatlán found a goal in a corner kick. The young man shot and a defender managed to deflect his shot to beat Antony Silva, at minute 85.
