Chivas de Guadalajara vs Monarcas Morelia – Jornada 13 Recap and Highlights

A stoppage-time goal gave Monarcas Morelia a 1-2 away win against a 10-man Chivas de Guadalajara. The result is a third straight loss for El Rebaño, who also remain winless at home this season, while La Monarquía have now won two in a row.

Chivas started the game off well and Sebastián Sosa was called on early to keep the hosts off the board. Orbelín Pineda had a dangerous chance in the 9th minute following a corner kick, but quick reflexes allowed Sosa to preserve the draw.

Morelia had chances of their own, and in the 26th minute Diego Valdés had a good opportunity but Rodolfo Cota was able to intervene.

In the second half, Chivas came close through Rodolfo Pizarro’s acrobatic effort, but it was the visitors who opened the scoring. In the 51st minute, Cota fouled Raúl Ruidíaz in the box and Morelia had a penalty kick. Ruidíaz stepped up and converted it to make it 0-1 for the michoacanos.

It didn’t take long for Chivas to find a response, though, with Carlos Salcido tying it up 1-1 in the 61st minute from a corner kick.

But the night went downhill after that for the hosts. Pizarro was sent off in the 81st minute with a straight red card, and then the unfortunate Salcido scored an own-goal in stoppage time to give Morelia the 1-2 lead.

With the 1-2 win, Morelia reaches 19 points while Chivas still has nine.
