Querétaro remains winless in the Clausura 2017 after falling 0-1 to Chivas de Guadalajara. The Gallos Blancos also have yet to score a goal, with tonight’s loss marking a fourth straight shutout. On the other hand, Chivas remains unbeaten on the road with this victory.
The visitors had the first clear chance of the game in the 16th minute, when Eduardo López tried his such with a shot from distance. Tiago Volpi responded well, though, with an impressive save to keep it 0-0.
But despite Volpi’s best efforts, Chivas found the breakthrough in the 27th minute. Oribelín Pineda started the play with a good pass for Jesús Sánchez, who controlled the ball and scored to make it 0-1.
Querétaro looked for a response, but aside from a counterattack attempt that broke down, they showed little going forward.
Volpi was called on again early in the second half to keep Querétaro in the game, and slowly the Gallos Blancos began to find a chance or two. In the 55th minute, Camilo Sanvezzo came within inches of finding the equalizer; then, in the 72nd minute, the post kept out a deflected shot to prevent the hosts from scoring.
In the end, Querétaro was unable to end their goalless streak, which has stretched to 360 league minutes, and Chivas made their lone goal stand up for their second win of the season.
With the 0-1 win, Chivas reaches seven points while Querétaro remains on two.
