Querétaro took the lead but couldn’t hold it as Tigres UANL came back for a 1-1 draw. The result keeps the universitarios unbeaten this season, while the Gallos Blancos are still unbeaten on the road, but are now winless in two overall.
Tigres had the better of possession in the opening minutes, but it was Querétaro who created the first opportunity – and they made it count. In the 9th minute, Tiago Volpi sent the ball upfield for Yerson Candelo, who played in Luis Noriega. He sent his low shot under Nahuel Guzmán to give the visitors the early 0-1 lead.
Tigres patiently worked to find an equalizer but Querétaro stood firm defensively and also kept the hosts honest with some chances of their own. Noriega could have made it 0-2 just before halftime, but the opportunity went begging as he sent his shot into the stands.
In the second half, Tigres’ persistence paid off. In the 57th minute, Lucas Zelarayán pounced on a rebound given up by Tiago Volpi and sent the ball into the net to tie the game 1-1.
After the equalizer, Tigres dominated possession as they looked to complete the comeback, but the final touch was lacking. Querétaro defended well and kept Tigres from scoring a second as the two teams settled for a share of the spoils.
With the 1-1 draw, Tigres reach five points while Querétaro reaches four.
