Tijuana vs Chivas de Guadalajara – Jornada 3 Recap and Highlights

tijuana chivasTijuana bounced back from last weekend’s loss with a 4-0 thumping of Chivas de Guadalajara. The win keeps the Xolos perfect at home this season while Chivas remains winless on the road.

Tijuana came out attacking from the opening moments and they had the ball in the back of the net in the 13th minute. However, Avilés Hurtado was called for offside and the would-be goal was disallowed.

Six minutes later, the Xolos had the ball in the net again and this time it counted. Dayro Moreno – sporting a new blond look – finished off a cross from Gabriel Hauche to put Tijuana ahead 1-0.

Then, in the 29th minute, a quick counterattack ended with Hurtado sliding the ball across the six-yard box for Moreno to tap home at the far post. That goal, Moreno’s fourth of the season, lifts him to the top of the goalscoring table, pending the rest of this weekend’s matches.

Tijuana increased their lead in the 39th minute, with Hurtado feeding Hauche on another fast break. The Argentinian slid his shot under an onrushing Rodolfo Cota to make it 3-0 going into halftime.

In he second half, Chivas came out looking to get a foothold in the game. However, a pair of early chances came to naught and Tijuana began to dominate once more. In the 70th minute, Jair Pereira was called for a foul on Hauche in the box and referee José Peñaloza pointed to the penalty spot.

Milton Caraglio stepped up to take the spot kick and he confidently beat Cota to make it 4-0 for the Xolos.
