Liga MX, More than a year later, the Red Sharks of Veracruz won again in a Liga MX match after defeating Puebla by the slightest difference
A year and two months had to pass for the Red Sharks of Veracruz to know again the sweet taste of victory in the MX League. With a lonely goal by Colin Kazim Richards (49 ′) at the start of the second half, the Esqualos defeated Puebla and ended their streak of 41 games without winning. In addition, it was the first triumph for goalkeeper Sebastián Jurado since he debuted with the jarochos.
The Turkish footballer took advantage of the poor shooting of the background and within the area, he controlled with the chest the center of Luis Lozoya to later define the exit of the goalkeeper. The sharks managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the game, although not without arbitration controversy, because a penalty was not indicated in favor of Puebla despite the revision in the VAR.
