On Sunday night, Leones Negros and Queretaro faced off in the final game of the Liga MX Apertura Week 2 schedule at Jalisco Stadium in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
Both sides entered the match at the bottom of the Liga MX table, after 3-1 losses on the season’s opening weekend.
When the final whistle blew, it was Queretaro who came away with a 1-0 win.
It was a back-and-forth first half that had some quality chances from both sides, but neither team was able to break through and find the back of the net.
For Leones Negros, who were the Liga MX newcomers with a much longer official name, Club de Fútbol Leones Negros de la Universidad de Guadalajara, it appeared that they were closing in on securing at least a point.
Unfortunately for Leones Negros, the Gallos Blancos were able to break the tie in the 60th minute when Camilo Sanvezzo beat Humberto Gabriel Hernández to the bottom left corner to put Queretaro ahead, 1-0.
It was exactly the kind of breakdown that Leones Negros needed to avoid if they wanted to stay in the top Mexican division.
Leones Negros were unable to bounce back after giving up the late goal, and Queretaro went on to secure their first win of the season and a crucial three points.
