2021 Liga MX Apertura Liguilla Quarterfinal match recap: Santos Laguna 2, Tigres UANL 1

Santos knew they had to take advantage of the first leg at their fortress TSM, and they did just that, getting a 2-1 win against Tigres to set the stage for the Vuelta (return leg) match on Sunday. Tigres however will feel comfortable going back to El Volcán down just a goal on aggregate and with the tiebreaker of finishing higher on the table during the regular season being in their favor.

Santos came out swinging, and it wasn’t long before they landed one when in the third minute of play Omar Campos hit a cross into the box that Diego Valdés got his head onto from seemingly out of nowhere, knocking it past Nahuel Guzmán to the delight of the crowd.
