A stoppage-time goal gave Querétaro their first win of the season with a 2-1 victory over León. The result keeps the Gallos Blancos unbeaten under new coach Jimmy Lozano, while the loss keeps La Fiera winless in four and could see them end the weekend in last place, depending on other results.
Querétaro pushed forward early on and looked dangerous, particularly as Ángel Sepúlveda, Jaime Gómez, and Luis Noriega got involved in the attack. In the 13th minute, Noriega gave the Gallos the 1-0 lead with his shot from the edge of the box, which took a deflection off Guillermo Burdisso to beat William Yarbrough.
Querétaro came close to adding to their lead through Camilo Sanvezzo, but Yarbrough was able to make a kick-save to deny him. As the half wore on, León began to create chances of their own, with Carlos Peña having a pair of one-on-one opportunities against Tiago Volpi.
Then, in the 35th minute, León was able to tie the game when Osvaldo Rodríguez finished off a cross from Fernando Navarro at the far post.
In the second half, León had more chances but Querétaro had the more dangerous ones, including a header by Emanuel Villa that was saved on the line. Nevertheless, the game remained tied 1-1.
Just as it looked destined to end that way, Querétaro earned a late free kick after a foul by Andrés Andrade. Miguel Ángel Martínez connected with the set piece service from Neri Cardozo to give Querétaro the 2-1 lead in the 94th minute.
With the 2-1 win, Querétaro reaches six points while León still has four.
