Necaxa took the lead but couldn’t hold it as Querétaro came back for a 1-1 draw. The result keeps the Gallos Blancos unbeaten in two – but still winless at home this season – while the Rayos are now winless in three.
The visitors started the game off brightly and repeatedly tested Tiago Volpi, but it wasn’t until the second half that Necaxa was able to open the scoring.
In the 54th minute, Víctor Dávila – who had been Necaxa’s biggest threat in the first half – sent his left-footed shot in off the post to make it 0-1 for the Rayos.
After falling behind, Querétaro began to push forward with more intent as they looked for an equalizer. Camilo Sanvezzo had a good chance to tie it in the 74th minute with a pass from Édgar Benítez, but he couldn’t finish it off.
Then, in the 77th minute, Everaldo Stum – who had come on as a sub just five minutes earlier – leveled the game with an acrobatic bicycle kick to make it 1-1.
The final minutes were all Querétaro as, inspired by the bicycle kick, the Gallos Blancos pushed hard to complete the comeback. In the end, however, they had to settle for a share of the spoils.
With the 1-1 draw, Querétaro reaches 13 points while Necaxa reaches 14.
