Two minutes into the game Gustavo Daniel Cabral head, anticipating the captain and goalkeeper of Santos, Jonathan Orozco who in poor start, scores to get ahead quickly on the scoreboard.

Then on individual play comes Edwin Andrés Cardona at 9th minute and he pumps the ball to Spiderman Lagunero and the Tuzos already had some startled warriors on the canvas winning 2 to 0.

“I have always expressed it and I have told them to them, there will be bad afternoons in which it is not going to play well, because we are human beings, what should never fail is the character, the desire, the disposition and that was what took us out afloat to tie the game, ” said Jorge Gillermo Almada, Technical Director of Santos.

And how to get afloat if in front they had a team commanded by the highly experienced and undisciplined Rubens “Cañito Sambueza and the tireless captain Jorge Daniel“ Burrito ”Hernández.

The solution was in the disposition and the desire of the Argentine forward Julio Cesar Furch, scoring at 30 and leveling the match with a penalty at 64 and so Santos rose from the canvas to tie 2-2. With this doublet Furch is placed as a leading scorer with 7 goals.


With this anguishing draw, Santos extended his streak of matches to three without losing and supplies 17 points, placing as second in standings, only surpassed by Necaxa, for a better goal difference. Pachuca has three games in a row without winning and is in position 15 with 9 units.

Santos will travel to San Luis on September 21 to play at the Alfonso Lastras stadium, while Pachuca will play at home against Tijuana.
