One of the longest streaks without winning away from home in the entire history of La Liga MX was broken this Friday by Querétaro after defeating Tijuana with a score of 2-1 at the Caliente Stadium, located in Baja California, Mexico.
At least 3 years, 1 month and 20 days had to pass for Querétaro to will add 3 points at home, according to the data provided by the media ESPN. The last victory of the White Roosters as visitors has a record since February 16, 2020 against Nexaca 2-3 in what was the Clausura tournament of that year.
The winning goals came in minutes 32′ and 56′ respectively from the hand of José Raúl Zúñiga and Ángel Sepúlveda, while the goal to decorate the result was scored by Joaquín Montecinos in minute 89. The Xolos pushed in the last minutes to salvage a draw, but in the end the score did not budge.
In addition to breaking the “curse”, Los Gallos have managed to adhere to ninth place in the Clausura 2023 table of La Liga MX, with which they provisionally remain with a direct ticket to the playoffs for the Liguilla.
On the other side, the Xolos de Tijuana reaffirmed their bad moment and remain at the bottom of the table with only 12 points in 14 games played.
Querétado’s next matchday will take place on Monday, April 17, when they host Tigres at the La Corregidora Stadium.
