San Nicolás de los Garza, N.L.- The battle was long and hard, but Chivas U-23 made their status as the best youth academy in Mexican soccer count after defeating Tigres 0-2 (0-2 on aggregate) in extra time to win the first title in the history of the Liga MX U-23 category.

The team coached by Pepe Meléndez took a long time to be convincing, but when the match was in the second overtime period, they scored 2 goals in 2 minutes, the first of which was scored by the tournament's top scorer, Armando González, to crown an outstanding campaign and add another trophy to the red and white trophy cabinet.

- 112' Saúl Zamora scored the Red and White's second goal with a shot from outside the area that was deflected on its way to the back of the goal.

The danger:
10' Enrique Ledesma took a corner kick from the left wingtip with a soft touch, captain Matías Cendejas headed a shot with his head, but the ball was deflected by a defender on its way into the goal.

36' Diego Ojeda tried to surprise with a half-volley, but the red and white goalkeeper Eduardo García was well positioned to save the ball.

41' CEEERRRRRCAAAA From a direct free kick, Enrique Ledesma passed the ball over the wall and the ball went just over the crossbar.

47' Armando González fought for the ball in the box, and between 3 opponents managed to shoot with his left foot, but his shot went over the blue and white goalkeeper's crossbar.

83' UUUFFF Mateo Chávez took a shot outside the area, the ball went to the base of the post and the feline goalkeeper managed to deflect the shot.

89' ENORMEEEEEEEEEE THE DRAGON Eduardo García made the save of the match when he saved Diego Sánchez's shot with a throw to his left.

96' Saúl Zamora came within a whisker of breaking the scoreline with a shot from outside the area that went high, but the goalkeeper was too busy to keep the ball out of his net.
