The capital, who they played with one man less during the entire second half due to the expulsion of goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera, they stayed one game away from equaling their longest streak of commitments without losing at the start of the tournament (11-Clausura 2011).
Before the expulsion, the Lion already dominated his rival, but could not open the scoring due to his forceful lack. The first warning came from the left wing at 10 minutes and ended in a shot to the crossbar by Ángel Mena.
Later, the goalkeeper of the auriazules, Alfredo Talavera, would once again grow to save his team three times, two shots from the Argentine forward, Emmanuel Gigliotti and one more from Luis Montes, all of them near the small area.
In the midst of all those interventions, Talavera was reprimanded for claiming the referee, César Arturo Ramos. A yellow that seemed inconsequential, but it was not going to be, since, five minutes before the break, the whistler marked a doubtful foul by the goalkeeper on Mena inside the area and showed him the second card. Alfredo went to the showers early, right in his 400th Liga MX game.
The Guerrero goalkeeper, Julio González came in to replace the sacrificed Juan Iturbe and quickly received his first score. Own Mena was the one who was in charge of converting the prison that had been previously indicated and allowed the Fiera to leave at half time with the advantage in his favor.
