Monarcas Morelia vs Jaguares de Chiapas – Jornada 6 Recap and Highlights

morelia jaguaresMonarcas Morelia came from behind to defeat Jaguares de Chiapas 3-2, keeping them unbeaten at home this season. Jaguares, on the other hand, remain winless in three and winless on the road.

Morelia started the game off better, keeping possession and staying in Jaguares’ defensive third, but they were unable to open the scoring. Raúl Ruidíaz hit the crossbar but they came no closer than that, which allowed the visitors to take the lead against the run of play.

In the 22nd minute, Facundo Erpen’s attempted clearance set up nicely for Jonathan Fabbro, who scored with an acrobatic half-bicycle kick to make it 1-0 for Jaguares.

Chiapas grew into the game after the goal, but Morelia was able to tie it up just before halftime. In the 43rd minute, Jefferson Cuero sent his powerful shot past Óscar Jiménez to make it 1-1.

Jaguares restored their lead just minutes after the break, however, with Luis Mendoza sending his shot from the edge of the box to the far post in the 48th minute.

That 1-2 lead lasted until the final ten minutes of the match, when Morelia mounted a comeback. In the 80th minute, Jefferson Cuero finished off a good bit of team play to tie the game 2-2; then, just three minutes later, Raúl Ruidíaz finished off a rebound given up by Jiménez to give Morelia the lead for the first time.

With the 3-2 win, Morelia reaches 11 points while Jaguares remain on four.
