Pumas 5-3 Necaxa
This game was bonkers, and featured one of the slickest nutmegs we’ve seen in some time.
More on that later, but a 1-1 halftime deadlock gave way to a half-dozen markers in a frenzied second half.
Necaxa’s Matias Fernandez saw his 53rd minute goal answered two minutes later by Carlos Gonzalez. Martin Rodriguez and Alan Mozo made it 4-2 by the 76th, but Necaxa again had a quick fire answer in the 78th through Victor Davila’s second of the night.
Gonzalez bagged his second in the 81st to effectively put the match to bed, but what a game.
Mozo’s goal was legitimately smooth.
