Chivas de Guadalajara vs Tijuana – Jornada 3 Recap and Highlights

chivas tijuanaTijuana earned a 0-1 away win over Chivas de Guadalajara to give them back-to-back victories. Meanwhile, the loss ends el Rebaño’s unbeaten start to the season and keeps them winless in two.

Chivas poured the pressure on early with a pair of shots in the opening minutes, but Gibrán Lajud was alert to the danger. Soon after that, Edwin Hernández hit the crossbar for the hosts before Orbelín Pineda sent his shot into the woodwork as well.

Tijuana had a few chances of their own, with the clearest one coming from Paul Arriola, who struck the crossbar with a shot of his own.

Despite the workout both teams gave the woodwork, the game remained goalless going into halftime.

In the second half, Chivas continued to press forward and they kept the goalkeeper busy, but Lajud was always in the right place to stop the shots. Guadalajara took a total of 19 shots throughout the game, compared to just five for the Xolos, and they also put four times as many shots on goal as the visitors did.

Nevertheless, it was Tijuana who found the breakthrough. In the 73rd minute, Arriola sent a cross to the far post and Milton Caraglio was there to head it home. The Xolos were able to defend that 0-1 lead as Chivas was frustrated time and again.

With the 0-1 win, Tijuana reaches six points while Chivas remains on four.
