Necaxa vs. Club America: Highlights

Club America and Necaxa settled for a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Victoria on Tuesday night.

Las Aguilas were playing their first game of the post Ignacio Ambriz era after the Mexican manager and the club parted ways last weekend.

Even with an interim manager in charge, Las Aguilas were quick to take the lead in Aguascalientes when Paolo Goltz headed home from a set-piece.

As expected, Necaxa approached the game in a much more positive frame of mind after conceding, and Edson Puch earned his side a penalty just before the half. The same Puch stepped up and converted to put things at 1-1 heading into the break.

The second half, however, had a below-par display from both teams with Michael Arroyo and Puch coming closes to breaking the deadlock respectively.

At the end, both sides seemed more than happy to settle for the point in a busy Liga MX week with three games in seven days.

Las Aguilas next will host rivals Pumas UNAM at the Estadio Azteca, while Necaxa will visit Chiapas at the Estadio Victor Manuel Reyna.
