Querétaro scored a stoppage-time goal to earn a 1-2 away win against Jaguares de Chiapas. The loss extends Jaguares’ losing streak to four games and their winless streak to 12, while the victory snaps a five-game winless streak for the Gallos Blancos.
Querétaro made 10 changes to last weekend’s starting eleven for tonight’s game as they chose to rest their starters for the Copa MX final on Wednesday. Nevertheless, they still managed to open the scoring.
In the 15th minute, Mario Osuna found Andrés Rentería, who put his left-footed shot past Óscar Jiménez to give the visitors the 0-1 lead.
Goalscoring has been a serious struggle for Jaguares this season, but they did manage to tie the game up shortly before halftime. In the 41st minute, Vanderley headed home a service from Luis Mendoza to knot it up 1-1.
With the way Jaguares’ season has been going, even a draw would have felt like a good result – even playing against Querétaro’s “B” team. But they were unable to even earn that much, with Édgar Benítez scoring late for the Gallos.
Deep in stoppage time, Jaguares lost the ball as “Pájaro” Benítez forced a turnover; he drove into the box, cut around the goalkeeper, and rolled the ball into the corner with nine seconds remaining on the clock.
With the 1-2 win, Querétaro reaches 17 points while Jaguares remain on six.
