In total, 50 matches, between the regular phase and the league, in which Memo defended the Las Águilas goal without missing a single minute.

There were, in total, four thousand 500 minutes in a row that Ochoa played as America's starting goalkeeper during this period.

The streak will be cut short tonight, when Guillermo supports his teammates from home.
