Corner for Pumas! 


The good news is that Jesus Angulo will be able to continue after the hit on the face he took.

Dinenno is given the red card after he attempted a bicycle kick inside the box, but he missed the ball and hit Angulo on the face. The player from Atlas went down and he seems KO. The medical staff rushed to aid him.


Brayan Trejo took the free kick and his powerful shot was stopped by Alfredo Talavera. Now Pumas is looking to counter attack.


Nine minutes added of stoppage time.

Jairo Torres comes out and he is replaced by Edgar Zaldivar.


The referee checked the play and no penalty is given to Pumas.

The VAR is checking the play because Dinenno keeps bleeding. The referee might give Pumas a penalty kick. 


After the previous play, Dinenno got hit on the nose and he is bleeding. The medical staff is trying to stop the bleeding.


Alan Mozo makes a great cross with his right foot and Dinenno's header barely went wide. Pumas is one goal from booking their ticket to the final.

Luis Reyes comes out and Anibal Chala enters the game.

GOL! GOLAZO! GOAL! Against all odds! Pumas have scored the first one of the night. 'Chispa' Velarde made a powerful shot and the the goalkeeper from Atlas gave a rebound and Juan Dinenno tapped the ball to find the back of the net.

Well Julian Quiñones never fully recovered and he asked for a substitution. Christopher Brayan Trejo will take his place.


Jairo Torres takes the corner kick and Julian Quiñones attempted a bicycle kick that went way over the crossbar.


Aldo Rocha leads the counter attack and before entering the box, Freire was able to kick the ball away.


Julian Quiñones half volleyed the ball after a great pass from Julio Furch, but his shot barely, barely went wide.

Fourth substitution for Pumas: Favio Alvarez somes our and he is replaced by Cristian Battocchio.


Atlas is so close! Julian Quiñones runs down the right flank and sent a powerful low cross to Julio Furch, but his shot barely went wide.


Good news for Atlas, because Julian Quiñones will return to the game.


Atlas has a player down while they try to see if Quiñones is able to continue.


Julian Quiñones went down and he seems to be in a lot of pain. The medical staff iis checking up on him and it seems like he won't be able to continue due to an aparent ankle injurry.

Triple substitution for Pumas : 

Diogo De Oliveira, Leonel López and Higor Meritão come out and they are replaced by Washington Corozo, Marco García and José Rogério.


We are back for the second half!

The first half has ended with Atlas being the superior side. So far iis nil-nil and we will be back for the second 45 minutes.


One minute added of stoppage time.

Alfredo Talavera the man of the first half


It took Pumas almost 40 minutes to create an offensive opportunity. This time Diogo received the ball inside the box and with a little space, he managed to take a shot, but it went wide.


Alfredo Talavera is determined to keep the clean sheet. The goalkeeper once again anticipated a ball that was destined to Aldo Rocha.

Santamaría is booked for Atlas.


ONCE AGAIN! Atlas wants it more! Luis Reyes makes a powerful shot that Talavera had to dive to block it and in the rebound Aldo Rocha attempted a bicycle kick that barely went over the crossbar. 


Once again Atlas goes on offense. This time Julian Quiñonez receives a through ball inside the box, but Alfredo Talavera, who has been very busy this half, anticipated the play and cleared the danger away.


Jairo Torres is having a night! He went down the right flank and dribbled past Velarde. After that Torres was able to send a powerful low cross to find someone to tap the ball, but a defender from Pumas was near the six-yard box to clear the danger.


Jairo Torres makes a great solo play and with a tight angle he riffles the ball from a short distance, but Talavera was able to clear the danger.

Alan Mozo is booked.


Free kick for Atlas.


Great job from Atlas' defender Santamaria, who clear the ball as Dinenno was gettiing ready to kick it.

Aerial shot from Guadalajara


AGAIN ATLAS! Torres makes a great low cross to Quiñonez inside the box and he slid to hit the ball, but completely miissed it.

BACK-TO-BACK opportunity for the home side. Again Julio Furch was able to header the ball near the six-yard box and Alfredo Talavera with one hand is able to control it. After the play was over the referee said that Furch was off side. 


What a great play on offense from Atlas! Julio Furch holds the ball outside the box and gives it to Torres, who manages to shoot it, but it barely went wide.


No clear shots on goal so far.


Pumas' midfielder Higor Meritão has played a total of 1051 minutes during the Liga MX playoffs, the most by any player from the capital-based side.

Instead we will see either Atlas or Pumas UNAM and one of Tigres UANL or Club León reaching this year’s showpiece final. Atlas, it should be noted, have made it to only four finals before, winning a single title back in the 1950/51 season. Compared to the other three semi-finalists they are some way behind historically.
