And it is that before the match, both teams arrived very evenly, being within the first five of the general table. However, the Uruguayan striker for Las Águilas, Jonathan “Cabecita” Rodríguez, came out inspired and delivered with a brace, first at minute 16 and then at minute 38.
The 3-0 was led by the Argentine midfielder Leonardo Suárez, at minute 42. But at minute 53′, the Liga MX scoring leader appeared, the Mexico team, Henry Martin, who reached 10 goals in the tournament and revived the controversial goal celebration that Cuauhtémoc Blanco made famous, where he simulated a dog urinating on the opponent’s goal line.
Said celebration by Blanco was made in 1999, when he scored a goal against Celaya and in his celebration he first simulated a dog and later launched himself into the rival goal net.

The action caused the referee to show him a yellow card for unsportsmanlike behavior, but the cream-blue fans applauded the tribute to the mythical “10″ americanista. Although some former soccer players, such as Jared Borgetti, criticized his action, stating that “he must be an example for the youth.”
“A shame the way in which Henry Martín celebrates the goal. I assumed that, to be a captain and a figure of America, a little more class and education were required, ”said journalist David Faitelson on Twitter.

From minute 62 on, the rojiblancos had a certain reaction thanks to an own goal by Emilio Lara and at 72′ Sergio Flores excited the home crowd to score Chivas’ second, but they couldn’t take it anymore.
With this result, the team from the capital climbed to second place in the general table, with 23 points, while the team from Guadalajara dropped to fifth place, with 21 points.
For matchday 13, América will receive Club León at the Azteca stadium, on April 1. For its part, Guadalajara will play the city derby against Atlas on the same day.
