The Estadio Azteca witnessed a historic moment in Mexican football. After Henry Martín’s spectacular penalty goal against Cruz Azul, the Máquina Cementera couldn’t recover and lost the grand final.

As a result, América was crowned the new champion of the Clausura tournament, earning their fifteenth star.

For Cruz Azul, this match marked yet another runner-up finish in their long history of second-place finishes in Mexican football finals.

Despite their effort and determination on the field, they couldn’t overcome a formidable Club América, who emerged victorious. Cruz Azul will have to wait for another opportunity to achieve glory. Congratulations to the new champions!

THIS WAS THE GOAL THAT MADE THE DIFFERENCE

Suspense gripped the Mexican football final between América and Cruz Azul following a crucial referee decision.

In a controversial moment, the referee awarded a penalty against Cruz Azul due to a harsh tackle by Carlos Rodolfo Rotondi.

The play was meticulously reviewed by the referee, extending the tension in the stadium. Finally, the penalty was taken by Henry Martín.

Martín sent the ball into the net, becoming the first player to score in this thrilling final. Is there already a winner? Uncertainty reigns as the match continues.

With the draw in the first match, all eyes were on the second leg, which was delayed by over half an hour due to bad weather.

Unlike previous rounds, the winner of the final must be decided on the field, whether in regular time, extra time, or penalties.

América was seeking a historic back-to-back championship, a feat achieved by only three teams since 1996: Pumas, León, and Atlas.

«We have to appreciate the team’s effort to get the result. We missed some opportunities, but we come away with a good draw,» Quiñones said, according to The Associated Press.
