The matchup today between Pumas & Necaxa was a very clear tale of two halves, and clearly one about being able to finish after a strong start-part of the story beyond the score here, which shows a 3-1 Pumas victory at home. Necaxa scored the first goal almost right away, as Jesus Isijara scored in the opening minute to give the visitors a 1-0 lead, which Necaxa took into halftime. But the second half was all Pumas-Nicolas Castillo scored almost immediately after the second half began to pull the hosts even, Pablo Barrera gave them the lead with a 68th-minute goal, and Bryan Rabello added an insurance goal in the 89th minute. Another key stat was the Pumas advantage in corner kicks, a whopping 10-2.
