Necaxa ended Jornada 6 play with a 1-2 away win against Chivas de Guadalajara. The result gives the Rayos back-to-back victories – and their first win on the road – while El Rebaño has now lost two in a row.
The visitors took the lead early on. In the 10th minute, Maximiliano Salas received the ball in the box, muscled past Oswaldo Alanís, and sent his shot into the back of the net to make it 0-1 for Necaxa.
While Chivas was trying to regroup, they were forced into an early substitution as Eduardo López had to leave the game injured in the 15th minute. Nevertheless, the hosts pressed forward in search of an equalizer, but it was hard going for them.
Then, as the half was winding down – and just when Chivas was looking most dangerous – Necaxa added a second. In the 41st minute, Necaxa brought the ball down the right side, Chivas couldn’t clear the cross, and Mauro Quiroga played it back for Luis Gallegos, who sent a rocket from outside the box into the net to make it 0-2.
In the second half, Necaxa sat back to defend their lead rather than continuing to attack, and Chivas began to take control. In the 64th minute, Dieter Villalpando reduced the deficit to 1-2 as he finished off a cross that had bounced past several players.
Now within striking distance, the hosts threw numbers forward as they looked for an equalizer. Isaác Brizuela and Oribe Peralta both looked dangerous – Peralta had a scissor kick saved well by the keeper – but Chivas couldn’t find a second goal.
With the 1-2 win, Necaxa reaches 10 points while Chivas still has seven.
