There is no evil that lasts a hundred years, nor madman who endures them. The red and black of the Atlas finally broke the streak of 10 games without knowing the defeat between League and unofficialafter beating Real Salt Lake of the MLS 2-1, and what is even more novel was that the winning goal was the work of Lucas Rodríguez.
Atlas had nine games in the 2022 Apertura and one more unofficial, against New York City without being able to win and the Leagues Cup 2022 Showcase match had to come for the Foxes to finally achieve a victory that will take them to the end of the campaign next week with a better attitude.
The meeting began in the worst possible way for the two-time champions of Mexican soccer, since At minute 16 Aaron Herrera arrived to score a flag goal, with a shot executed further back from half court, in a clear mistake by goalkeeper José Hernández.
But Atlas did not lower his arms and took advantage of the fact that Real Salt Lake was left with one man less for the expulsion of Justin Meram, which left the premises with only 10 elements. And it was Édgar Zaldívar at minute 41 and Lucas Rodríguez at minute 71 who were the authors of the goals of the red and black victory, prior to the resumption of the League, where the Foxes will face Necaxa at the Jalisco Stadium.
