FC Juárez vs Chivas de Guadalajara – Jornada 15 Recap & Highlights

FC Juárez took the lead but couldn’t hold it as Chivas de Guadalajara scored in stoppage time to earn a 1-2 away win. The result snaps a five-game winless streak for El Rebaño while the Bravos have now lost two of their last three and two in a row at home.

The game started off well for the hosts, who came out attacking and took the lead in the 12th minute. Juárez moved the ball quickly down field and while Diego Rolán’s initial shot was saved, Dario Lezcano was on hand to bury the rebound and make it 1-0 for the Bravos.

But the complexion of the game changed towards the end of the half, when Lezcano went from hero to villain by earning a second yellow – and the subsequent red – for a comment he made to the referee.

Playing the entire half with a numerical advantage, Chivas was able to stage a comeback. Just minutes after the restart, the visitors made a corner kick count as Jesús Molina leveled the game 1-1 with his header.

The run of play tilted heavily in Guadalajara’s favor after that, but it wasn’t until stoppage time that they were able to complete the comeback. In the 92nd minute, Eduardo López got into the box, cut around his defender, and fired past Edmundo Vázquez Mellado to make it 1-2 for the visitors.

With the 1-2 win, Chivas reaches 16 points while Juárez still has 14.
