Uruguayan striker Federico Viñas broke the goal drought he had been experiencing over the last few months against FC Juárez, which had provoked severe criticism from América fans and the media.

Half an hour into the match, Viñas found the net again when he took a free-kick with his left foot, which surprised the defense and the Border team's goalkeeper, Carlos Felipe Rodríguez.
Viñas' goal was the second goal of the match and practically put Ricardo Ferretti's team to the sword.
When was the last time Viñas scored for América?
The last time Viñas had scored in Liga MX was in round 16 against Cruz Azul, a result that ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Águilas. Since then, it took him five months and six days to find the net again.
Before this match, Viñas had played 400 minutes in the Clausura 2022 and had been active in 10 matches, only four of them as a starter.
Coach Federico Ortiz defended his player a few days ago and assured that he was not worried about the bad moment that Federico Viñas is going through.
"What matters is the team, it doesn't matter if a striker scores or not. I have no reproaches when it comes to my strikers converting, I am grateful for every ball they fight for. I care more about the team than personal analysis. Everyone works hard during the week to have a chance to score and whoever scores, I am happy and we are happy as a team", he stated.
