Pachuca took the initiative early on as they looked to finally get that elusive first win. Their first good chance came in the 10th minute with a header by Erick Gutiérrez, but Toño Rodríguez made the save.
Pachuca controlled possession but couldn’t find the final touch. On the other end, Brayan Rabello came close to giving Lobos the lead only to be denied by the post.
The Tuzos found their scoring touch in the second half, however, and Ángelo Sagal made it 1-0 shortly after the restart. In the 49th minute, halftime substitute Víctor Guzmán sent in a great ball for Sagal, who finished it off to give Pachuca the lead.
In the 57th minute, they made it 2-0. Franco Jara sent the ball in for Erick Gutiérrez; Rodríguez made the initial save, but Guzmán was there to finish off the rebound and put Pachuca comfortably ahead.
Lobos pressed forward as they looked for a way back into the game, but as they did so they left space in the back for the Tuzos to exploit. Rodríguez was called on repeatedly to keep the scoreline respectable as Pachuca peppered his goal.
Then, in the 81st minute, Erick Gutiérrez put the exclamation mark on the win as he made it 3-0 with an assist by Erick Aguirre to ensure Pachuca would walk away with their first victory of the Apertura.
With the 3-0 win, Pachuca reaches four points while Lobos still have four.
