Javier “Vasco” Aguirre placed Vincent Janssen in the starting XI, over Rogelio Funes Mori, who holds the record for most goals for Rayados, but “El Toro” couldn’t find the net in the time he had on the pitch. It’s worth mentioning that during Apertura 2021 he only scored one goal, against Cruz Azul in the 4-1 defeat in Liguilla.

Things aren’t as different for Rayados other striker, Rogelio Funes Mori, who played as a substitute against Gallos Blancos, but he couldn’t score, something that is becoming regular for him, as he only scored 6 goals the past semester, but only four of those goals were during the regular season.
