Guadalajara’s attempt to shorten the score did not last long, since at minute 65 the third fell for América’s account. After a rejection by the red and white defense on a corner kick, Igor Lichnovsky went to recover the ball and then serve it to Valdés, who again was not pressured by the defense and his shot was covered by the net for 3-0 .
