In a wild game where both teams had the lead at one time or another, a stoppage-time goal saw Necaxa draw 3-3 with Chivas de Guadalajara. The result keeps the Rayos unbeaten this season – but winless at home in two – while el Rebaño remains unbeaten in two but winless in three.
Chivas came out attacking as they looked to get back to winning ways, and they found several early chances. Alexis Vega and Alan Pulido both had opportunities, but couldn’t truly threaten Hugo González’s goal.
Then, in the 27th minute, the unfortunate Ventura Alvarado gave Chivas the lead with an impressive header as the defender tried to clear a cross but only sent it into his own net. 0-1 for the visitors.
Necaxa immediately began looking for a response, and they came close through Cristian Calderón, but it wasn’t until the second half that they were able to tie the game. In the 50th minute, Brian Fernández received the ball on the right wing and took it to the top of the box, where he laid it off and got it back before beating Raúl Gudiño with a shot from just outside the area to make it 1-1.
Then, in the 59th minute, Fernández scored again from a very similar play, getting the ball on the wing, driving into the box, and beating Gudiño with a left-footed shot to give Necaxa the 2-1 lead.
In the 75th minute, Necaxa got a penalty kick and it seemed they would run away with the game. But Ángel Sepúlveda’s soft shot down the center was easily stopped by Gudiño to keep the score 2-1.
That missed penalty inspired Chivas, who took control of possession and began pressing in earnest for an equalizer. In the 81st minute, they were awarded a penalty of their own, and Alan Pulido converted that one to make it 2-2.
Then, in the 88th minute, Chivas reclaimed the lead through Ronaldo Cisneros, who finished off a deflected shot to make it 2-3 for the visitors.
There was one twist left in the game, however. In the 94th minute Necaxa won a free kick; Fernández sent it into the box and Carlos Guzmán headed it home to tie it up 3-3 at the death.
With the 3-3 draw, Necaxa and Chivas both reach 11 points.
