Querétaro scored in stoppage time to snatch a 2-2 draw against Monterrey. The result snaps a three-game losing streak for the Gallos Blancos – but keeps them winless in seven – while the Rayados remain unbeaten this season.
The first half was a hard-fought affair, with two teams battling for control of the game. There were few chances of note, but Querétaro was able to turn their first real chance into the opening goal in the 38th minute. Javier Güémez received the ball from a free kick and stabbed it home to make it 1-0.
Monterrey tied it up moments after halftime, however, when referee Diego Montaño Robles called a penalty in favor of the Rayados. Avilés Hurtado stepped up to take the PK, and he converted it to make it 1-1.
Ten minutes later, Leonel Vangioni completed the turnaround for the visitors, with his shot into the lower left corner putting Monterrey ahead, 1-2.
Querétaro threw numbers forward as they looked for an equalizer, and the final stanza of the game was frenetic. The Gallos’ pressure paid off in stoppage time, when they earned a penalty kick. Camilo Sanvezzo stepped up and converted the spot kick to tie the game at the death.
With the 2-2 draw, Querétaro reaches 10 points while Monterrey reaches 24.
