El campeón sigue vivo

En los minutos finales del encuentro, el rebaño logra imponerse ante unos inoperantes santos por la mínima diferencia y sigue vivo en la Copa MX

No fue el partido más atractivo, tampoco el que se jugó en las mejores condiciones climatológicas, mucho menos el que tuvo la mejor respuesta del público, sin embargo el objetivo se cumplió, pues la noche de este martes en medio de una copiosa lluvia que se presentó en las inmediaciones del estadio Chivas el rebaño sagrado se impuso al conjunto del Santos por la mínima diferencia, en un encuentro muy trabado en el medio campo aunque también con llegadas de peligro que arrancaron más de un grito a la afición presente.

Fue en punto de las 21:00 horas cuando el árbitro encargado de llevar a ben termino las acciones del partido dio el silbatazo inicial, y con él un encuentro que dominó por completo el equipo local durante todo el primer tiempo, sin lograr concretar sus llegadas que si bien contenían dosis de peligro no lograron horadar las redes de la visita.

Para la segunda mitad los estrategas comenzaron a replantear los objetivos y con los cambios las acciones fueron emparejándose, pues por el conjunto de Torreón ingresó al terreno de juego Julio Furch para darle frescura al ataque, así como Diego de Buen para darle movilidad también al centro del campo, mientras que por el rebaño sagrado fueron los canteranos Ángel Zaldívar y los jovencitos Macías y Torres los que le brindaron dinámica al conjunto rojiblanco, y fue al minuto 85 en una jugada fortuita cuando dicha idea dio resultados favorables a los dirigidos por Matías Almeida, pues en un desborde por el lado derecho de su ataque el esférico cruzó el área sin ser contactado por defensores ni atacantes hasta un par de pasos del punto penal donde se encontraba ubicado Ángel Zaldívar, quien al tratar de controlar el balón le hizo un contacto extraño y se dirigió de manera muy angulada al arco defendido por el arquero Carlos Acevedo, quien por más que se estiró para intentar alcanzar la de gajos no logró hacerlo y así ver caer su meta.

Después de esta acción los de casa se dedicaron a mantener el balón es su poder y agotar así los 8 minutos restantes, pues el cuarto arbitró adicionó 3 minutos y fue cumplido el minuto 93 cuando se dio por terminado el encuentro, permitiendo con ello que los de Guadalajara llegaran a 9 puntos con cuatro partidos disputados, mientras que los del norte del país se quedaron con 6 unidades pero esperando enfrentarse en la última jornada a los Bravos de Ciudad Juárez y con ello aspirar con una victoria a quedarse con la cima del grupo 7 en la fase de grupos de esta edición de la Copa MX.

WATCH NOW: Staredown featuring Eddy Reynoso and Abel Sanchez
Eddy Reynoso and Abel Sanchez, trainers of Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Glolovkin, talk about the importance of Canelo vs. Golovkin to the sport of boxing
Below are highlights from the trainers’ conversation in Staredown:
 

EDDY REYNOSO, Trainer to Canelo Alvarez:

 

“This fight is huge for Mexico. There hasn’t been a fight like this since Pacquaio vs. Marquez that has peaked such interest.
[When asked about Gennady’s “Mexican Style”] “It makes me proud that foreign boxers would choose to emulate our Mexican boxing style. It’s proof of importance.
“Canelo and Gennady’s boxing styles will certainly test each other, and this is the type of fight that can result in a trilogy. This fight will bring boxing the credibility it once had in the past. The boxer that makes the best adjustments is the one that will win the fight.
“We are working hard in the gym. We know Golovkin is a strong boxer, but Saul is a better boxer, and his time is now.”

ABEL SANCHEZ, Trainer to Gennady “GGG” Golovkin:

 

“All the big fights are in Vegas. Gennady has never had a fight of this magnitude. This is a fight for world supremacy. The middleweight division has always been the glory division so the winner of this fight will be considered a super star.
“The great fighters, the greatest warriors in history have been Mexican or Latino. Both Canelo and Gennady are bringing back this ‘Mexican Style’ of boxing.
“Sparring is sparring. Canelo was just a young boy of 19 or 20 years when he and Gennady sparred. He’s progressed immensely since then. My impression of Canelo after that sparring session was that he was fast and smart, had nice combinations and good movement, but he was only five years into his professional career at that time. I thought he could be a champion or a star someday.
“Gennady needs to beat Canelo. He needs to destroy Canelo; destroy the aura that he has right now.”

TICKETS FOR UFC® 216: FERGUSON vs. LEE

AT T-MOBLE ARENA ON SALE AUG. 31

 

Las Vegas – The owner of the longest winning streak in the UFC® lightweight division finally gets his shot at gold when No. 2 Tony Ferguson collides with one of the sport’s most exciting young stars for the division’s interim title. No. 7 Kevin Lee has the same aspirations as his opponent, while ultimately staring down the road at a potential unification bout against current champion Conor McGregor. In the co-main event, No. 2 heavyweight Fabricio Werdum looks to get back in the title hunt when he clashes with knockout artist and No. 6-ranked Derrick Lewis. UFC® 216: FERGUSON vs. LEE takes place on Saturday, Oct. 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The event will air live on Pay-Per-View.

 

Currently on a nine-fight win streak, Ferguson (23-3, fighting out of Orange County, Calif.) believes a title shot has been a long time coming. During his streak, “El Cucuy” has racked up post-fight bonuses in each of his last five bouts, including Fight of the Night honors in his most recent win against former lightweight champion, Rafael Dos Anjos. Ferguson is primed to capitalize on the opportunity and be a part of history, but standing in his way is the always dangerous Lee (16-2, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.). Though nine years younger than his foe, Lee has shown tremendous growth every time he enters the Octagon®, including a first-round submission win in his most recent bout against the then No. 7-ranked Michael Chiesa.

 

At 40 years old, Werdum (21-7-1, fighting out of Los Angeles, Calif.) is one of the best mixed martial artists ever. The former UFC champion has defeated some of the best heavyweights in history, with wins over Cain Velazquez, Alistair Overeem and Fedor Emelianenko, and he is preparing for yet another title run. Clashing with the always dangerous Lewis (18-5, fighting out of Houston, Texas) will be no easy task. With 16 of his 18 victories coming by way of knockout, and after scoring wins over top contenders Travis Browne and Roy Nelson, Lewis is looking to establish himself as a title contender.

 

Two of the UFC’s most popular female fighters look to revitalize their careers by moving to the women’s flyweight division. No. 10 strawweight Paige VanZant (7-3, fighting out of Sacramento, Calif.) is renowned for her all-around athleticism and is an electrifying performer with two knockouts and two submissions on her resume. Her 125-pound debut will be anything but easy, as she faces veteran Jessica Eye (11-6, 1NC, fighting out of Cleveland, Ohio). Hoping the brand new division will revitalize her career, Eye has always been most comfortable fighting at 125 lbs. and is excited to compete again at her natural weight.

 

Additional bouts:

 

  • A heavyweight bout featuring knockout artists Walt Harris (10-5, fighting out of Birmingham, Ala.) and the equally dangerous Mark Godbeer (12-3, fighting out of Bridgewater, England).
  • Top-15 lightweights Beneil Dariush (14-3, fighting out of Yorba Linda, Calif.) looks to ascend the rankings against Evan Dunham (17-6, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.), who is on a four fight win streak.
  • Dynamic lightweights Will Brooks (18-3, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla.) and Nik Lentz (29-8-2, 1NC, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla.) jockey for position in the stacked 155-pound division.
  • Two impressive winning streaks are on the line when the durable Tom Duquesnoy (15-1, 1NC, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) challenges the always dangerous Cody Stamann (15-1, fighting out of Sparta, Mich.).
  • Two strawweight women look for their first win in the UFC as Pearl Gonzalez (6-2, fighting out of Chicago, Ill.) challenges Poliana Botelho (5-1, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).
  • The unpredictable Lando Vannata (9-2, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) looks to prove himself against MMA veteran Bobby Green (23-8, fighting out of Fontana, Calif.).
  • No 10 flyweight John Moraga (17-6, fighting out of Phoenix, Ariz.) hopes to continue his ascent through the rankings against the undefeated No. 15 flyweight Magomed Bibulatov (14-0, fighting out of Grozny, Russia).
  • No. 12 middleweight and UFC veteran Thales Leites (27-7, fighting out of Rio de Janiero, Brazil) faces a formidable challenge against Las Vegas’ own Brad Tavares (15-5, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.).
  • It will be a battle of explosive flyweight athletes when Matt Schnell (10-4, fighting out of Shreveport, La.) meets Marco Beltran (8-6, fighting out of Mexico City, Mexico).
