“Santos Laguna was a rather complicated rival for us, we had a very tough opponent. I recognize my players and the credit goes to Monterrey. We faced the best team in the tournament and on the merits of my players we were able to disqualify it”, commented Antonio Mohamed.
The warriors said goodbye to an excellent season as super leaders, but their head coach Almada was unable to handle the playoffs, succumbing to a 6-3 aggregate score in favor of The Regiomontanos.
More than 25 thousand loyal fans crowded the TSM, who were excited when in the minute 19 Brian Lozano scored a spectacular goal putting the momentary 1 to 0 in favor of Santos, but Monterrey played very well defensively and managed every attempt made by the saints.
In the second half, the warriors continued to play with a lot of heart and passion, but the goal scored by Janssen, and after being review by VAR the goal was given after the analysis of the play.
With the overall score of 6 to 3 in favor of Monterrey, Rayados eliminate the leader of the tournament; Santos. Rayados now advances to the semi-final matches that will play against Necaxa.
