Apertura 2017 Week 3 Results: Toluca 3, Atlas 2

In another matchup of early unbeaten teams, Toluca extended its season-opening unbeaten streak to 3 while handing Atlas their first loss with a comeback 3-2 win. Juan Vigon put Atlas on the board first with a 22nd-minute header, then they caught a break when Rubens Sambueza missed a PENAL! in the 39th minute that kept Toluca off the board. The hosts would still pull even on a Gabriel Hauche goal right before halftime. In the 65th minute, Gustavo Alustiza’s 3rd goal of the year put Atlas up 2-1, but Enrique Triverio & Mateus Goncalves scored unasnwered 82nd & 85th minute goals to rally Toluca for the victory. Atlas may have cost itself a chance at a tie late by getting 3 quick Amarillas in the final moments of the game & extra time.
