In an exciting match at the Estadio Azteca, Club América draw 2-2 at home to Querétaro to make it five straight games without a win in Liga MX.

The visitors had taken the lead when in the 30th minute Fabian Castillo weaved his way into the edge of the box before combining with Aké Loba and slotting home Querétaro’s first.

But Querétaro’s advantage lasted less than two minutes as Henry Martin fired América level after picking out a deflected Renato Ibarra shot.

Las Águilas amped up the pressure in the second half, though Querétaro often fought back and looked dangerous themselves.

In the 78th minute came the drama as Henry Martin grabbed the ball from the midfield and worked his way into the box to smash in Club América’s go-ahead goal.

The set-back failed to hold back Querétaro, though, and they fired back almost immediately. This time Jesus Escoboza made it level after his shot deflected past Guillermo Ochoa for the 2-2.

After giving away a lead in very similar fashion last week against Pumas UNAM, Las Águilas were once again left the bitter feeling of celebrating only to see it all taken away moments after.

With the result, América will now look to bounce back in their midweek match versus FC Juárez before traveling back to Mexico City to take on rivals Chivas Guadalajara. Querétaro, on the other hand, have been one of the surprise teams of the competition and they will look to keep things going against Necaxa on Tuesday.
