The action occurred in the middle of the field in the 25th minute, when Jefferson Intriago gave Carlos Rodríguez a kick. The Cruz Azul player was left lying on the field for a few minutes, but remained in the game, albeit in considerable discomfort.
However, at 30', Carlos Rodríguez lay down on the field until the medical staff of La Maquina arrived and treated him, but the Cruz Azul player managed to leave the field on foot.
Juan Reynoso sent Erik Lira and Ignacio Rivero to warm up, but in the end decided to give playing time to the Uruguayan, who entered the field when the score was still unchanged.
