The hosts opened the scoring in the 25th minute, when Hedgardo Marín headed home a corner kick to make it 1-0. It was the defender’s first goal in Liga MX.
However, Pachuca responded in the 32nd minute. Erick Gutiérrez took the ball to the endline before sending it back towards the center of the box; Franco Jara was there to bury it and give the Tuzos the equalizer.
The game looked to have tilted back in Guadalajara’s favor in the second half, however, when Hirving Lozano went down in the box and was given his second yellow rather than the penalty he was looking for, which left Pachuca to see out the game with just 10 men.
Chivas looked to take advantage of their extra man and in the 75th minute they thought they had retaken the lead. However, Marco Bueno’s would-be goal was disallowed for a handball in the buildup. Bueno had another chance soon afterwards, but this time he hit the post.
Then, in the 86th minute, Jonathan Urretaviscaya won the ball at the top of his own 18-yard box and went on a 60-yard before muscling past two defenders and chipping Rodolfo Cota to give Pachuca the 1-2 lead with a true golazo.
With the 1-2 win, Pachuca reaches 27 points while Chivas remains on 23.
