Monarcas Morelia took the lead but couldn’t hold it as Querétaro came back for a 2-1 win. The result ends Morelia’s unbeaten start to the season while snapping a two-game winless streak for the Gallos Blancos.
Querétaro started the game off well as they went in search of their first home win. Everaldo Stum in particular looked dangerous in attack, and he had a good chance in the 18th minute; however, Mario Osuna was able to intervene as Stum lined up for a left-footed shot.
Those two had another individual battle as Stum went on a run, got into the box, and did well to get past Osuna, but he scuffed his shot in the end.
But despite Querétaro having the better of the run of play, it was Morelia who opened the scoring. In the second half, Ángel Sepúlveda struck against his old team to make it 0-1 for the michoacanos. Sepúlveda finished off a cross from Gerardo Rodríguez to put the visitors ahead in the 51st minute.
Querétaro immediately began pressing for an equalizer, and substitute Emanuel Villa hit the crossbar as the Gallos came close. Villa hit the woodwork again after Sebastián Sosa made a save on Javier Güémez, and it looked like the tying goal was coming.
In the 80th minute, the pressure paid off for the hosts. Jordi Cortizo met a corner kick and headed it past Sosa to make it 1-1; then, just three minutes later, fellow substitute Camilo Sanvezzo completed the turnaround with his free kick from distance.
With the 2-1 win, Querétaro reaches seven points while Morelia still has three.
