Tigres UANL took a late lead but couldn’t hold it as 10-man Atlético San Luis came back for a 1-1 draw. The result keeps the Potosinos winless in two, while the universitarios remain unbeaten in three.
The first chance of the game fell for San Luis, with Matías Catalán getting free on the right and sending a shot just wide of Nahuel Guzmán’s goal. But after that opportunity, possession and chances began to tilt in Tigres’ favor.
The visitors had a good chance in the 22nd minute from a free kick, but goalkeeper Carlos Rodríguez was able to make the save. Then, in the 30th minute, Luis Quiñones saw his shot deflected by the defense.
Enner Valencia and Eduardo Vargas also had good chances, but Tigres couldn’t find the breakthrough and the game remained goalless going into halftime.
In the second half, San Luis regrouped and began to create more opportunities of their own. Nicolás Ibáñez got into a good position, but couldn’t get his shot on target; Camilo Mayada also had a chance come to naught.
Then, in the 74th minute, the hosts were reduced to 10 men as – following VAR review – Mayada was given a red card for a hard foul on Quiñones.
It didn’t take long for Tigres long to take advantage. From the ensuing free kick, the visitors took the 0-1 lead, with the unfortunate Joaquín Laso getting the final touch as the ball ended up in his own net.
But the lead lasted just five minutes before San Luis leveled the game. Catalán received the ball into the box and cut it back for Germán Berterame, whose low shot made it 1-1.
Tigres had a chance to grab the lead back at the death, but Quiñones was denied by the woodwork as the two teams had to settle for a share of the spoils.
With the 1-1 draw, San Luis reaches four points while Tigres reach 10.
