The Tuzos took advantage of the visitors' bewilderment in the second half.
Pachuca is the kryptonite of royal teams as if the millions they are worth had no effect against the Tuzos. It is not from now, and the hidalguenses have titles in the BBVA and Universitario stadiums in their history.
Echuca widely surpassed Monterrey and got one foot into the final of theOpening 2022. Much history remains, and the scratched machinery cannot be underestimated.
The second leg promises another exciting game, with plenty of goals and controversy, that will not be missing.
The result could have been different; Rogelio Funes Mori had the opportunity through a penalty to put the game 3-3. However, Oscar Ustari washed away his mistake after committing a foul on Jesús Gallardo and dressed as a hero.
From 3-3, the scoreboard swelled to 5-2 in the blink of an eye. The Twin is going to receive criticism. The World Cup is just around the corner, and one of the forwards contemplated by Gerardo Martino is not at his best.
The Hidalgo wind swept them away or the offensive proposals of both Albiazul teams, but the annotations came in buckets. A game of giving and take, happy, effervescent.
Pachuca always put themselves in front, but Rayados always could get closer. The game was in its first quarter of an hour, and there were already two goals. Nicolás Ibáñez scored, then Héctor Moreno tied the game.
That inertia was maintained throughout the game. Romario Ibarra put the second for the Tuzos, but Luis Romo put everything the same again.
People enjoyed a final phase game. The goals did not stop appearing. Pachuca returned and did not allow himself to tie for the third time. Paulino de la Fuente recently entered put a third of the night.
The game got stuck, Rogelio Funes Mori entered, and at that moment, the story changed. Erick Aguirre was also sent off at that time.
El Mellizo was able to tie the match after Ustari's blunder by committing a reckless foul on Jesús Gallardo, but his penalty kick missed.
That mistake brought down the royals emotionally, and all their shields fell. Nicolas Ibanez showed why he is the scoring champion and scored two more goals, one from a penalty and the other from play. Nico's hat trick has Pachuca with one foot in the final.
