Clausura 2017 Round 3 Results: Necaxa 1, Pachuca 0

It took them 3 weeks amid a slow start but Necaxa finally got their first win of the tournament last night by knocking Pachuca from the unbeaten ranks 1-0. Maximilliano Barreiro scored the only goal in the 52nd minute, Necaxa’s first of the tournament. And given this was a Necaxa game there were lots of fouls and cards, including Pachuca’s Diego Alonso right as end of game stoppage time began…Rojas! HE GONE! Oscar Murillo got an Amarilla at the same time. So it seems Pachuca lost their cool and a player for next week as well as the game.
