. / Puebla
Ecuadorian Bryan Angulo scored his fourth goal of the tournament this Friday with which he rescued the champion Cruz Azul draw 1-1 at Puebla’s home in the continuation of the tenth day of the Apertura 2021 of Mexican soccer. The Chilean Pablo Parra put the locals ahead in the 13th minute, but Angulo discounted in the 38th minute for the celestial ones, who suffered the expulsion of the Peruvian Yoshimar Yotún in the 55th minute. The Cruz Azul of the Peruvian coach Juan Reynoso remained in sixth place of the standings with 14 points, while Puebla climbed to fourteenth place with nine.
In their first approach to the goal of José de Jesús Corona, Puebla opened the scoring. In the 13th, Daniel Álvarez shot a ball that was found Pablo Parra, who with his right thigh made it 1-0. After the goal, Puebla gave possession to Cruz Azul, who was close to drawing at 21 with a header from Orbelín Pineda and at 25 with a shot from Uruguayan Ignacio Rivero. The warnings of ‘The Machine’ opened the door to the equalizer in 38, when Luis Romo crossed a ball into the area that Angle, without a mark, defined for 1-1.
The second part began with the expulsion from Yotún for a double warning. Puebla tried to get ahead on the scoreboard with a free kick that was generated by the Peruvian’s foul, a shot by Diego de Buen that was rejected by Corona.
Reynoso modified and despite having one less footballer, sent forwards Santiago Giménez and Uruguayan Jonathan Rodríguez, who missed the clearest of the Blues in the second half by shooting at the legs of Paraguayan goalkeeper Anthony Silva. In the final 10 minutes, Corona was a factor again by saving a pair of header by Daniel Álvarez and Guillermo Martínez.
In the other duel this Friday, Tijuana and Mazatlán drew without goals. Matchday 10 started on Thursday when Colombian Avilés Hurtado scored the goal with which he Pachuca beat Necaxa 1-0 at home, who fired coach Guillermo Vázquez.
