Tigres UANL scored a last-minute – and historic – goal to give them a 0-1 away win against Pumas UNAM. The result ends UNAM’s perfect start to the season while UANL bounced back from last weekend’s loss.
The hosts started the game off stronger, but the final touch was lacking. Pumas generated quite a few off-target shots, and the ones that did go on frame were easily handled by Nahuel Guzmán.
The tone changed in the second half, though, when Jeison Angulo was red-carded in the 70th minute after challenging Enner Valencia for an aerial ball.
With the numerical advantage, the game tilted in Tigres’ favor. Still, the breakthrough wouldn’t come, and the game was just minutes away from ending in a goalless deadlock.
Then, in the 90th minute, Andrés Pierre-Gignac headed home a cross from Luis Rodríguez to give Tigres the 0-1 lead.
That goal, Gignac’s 105th for the club, also made the Frenchman Tigres’ all-time leading goalscorer, surpassing the mark of 104 goals previously held by Tomás Boy.
With the 0-1 win, Tigres reach six points while Pumas still have six.
