Match recap: Toluca 3, Santos Laguna 1

Santos started out well enough, but a goal late in the first half proved to be their undoing as Toluca scored two more in the second half to win 3-1. Defensive mistakes (and a Diego Rigonato golazo) proved costly for Los Guerreros, who are still searching for their first win of the 2022 season.

While it looked like Toluca might take the game to Santos initially, the run of play quickly favored the visitors, with Santos getting the better of the possession and winning corner kicks early. In the 22nd minute Brian Lozano hit a free kick from the far right side to Ayrton Preciado on the left, and “Ayrtinho” knocked it in past García.
