With nothing to play for but pride, Querétaro and Tijuana finished their seasons with a 2-2 draw. A flurry of goals at the start of the second half aside, both teams will want to move past this match and quickly shift focus to retooling for 2021.

In the seventh minute Luis Gamiz would commit a foul deem in Xolos territory and pick up a yellow card. On the ensuing free kick, Kevin Ramírez hit a shot directly at Jonathan Orozco. Orozco gave up a big rebound and Julián Velázquez was there to knock home the rebound against his former team.

Querétaro almost scored again in the 21st minute when Ángel Sepúlveda hit a header in the box that smashed off of the far post and out. Then as play continued it was Paolo Yrizar at the other end with a header that went over the bar.

Querétaro picked up where they left off at the start of the second half. In the 50th minute Sepúveda hit a great cross from the left hand side and an unmarked Hugo Silveira was there to head it in.

Tijuana would draw one back in the 54th minute however when Jordi Cortizo hit a cross in to Fabián Castillo, and he hit a shot that may have deflected off of a Querétaro player on its way in.

Xolos would draw it level moments later when Castillo hit a pass in to Vladimir Loroña, who chested the ball down and hit a shot past Eduardo Bravo.

The action after this flurry settled back down to the same levels as the first half, with neither team creating exciting chances and as the game drug on seemed to accept the final result. Both teams will slip into the offseason with a lot of work to do.
