Tecatico Corona was injured but avoided the operationThe Mexican forward suffered a serious injury
Porto ruled out a serious injury for the Mexican Jesús Tecatito Corona, who in the game against Famalicão had to leave the game assisted by the team's doctors. The group of Dragons expressed that the footballer only suffered from a "trauma to his left leg". Faced with this situation, the club will await the return of the Mexican as soon as possible in a season in which they seek the league title against Sporting Lisbon.
Tecatito Corona started as a starter, but had to be changed just 17 minutes into the game in which he suffered a foul that left him lying on the grass for some moments. Porto is in second place in the championship with 70 units added, while Lisbon is leading with 73 points and one game pending and with six rounds to go.
The Mexican tried on the court after the event, but walked with a slight limp, so he made a signal to the bench and asked for the substitution. In his place, the Nigerian Zaidu Sanusi entered the right wing. The Blue Dragons prevailed at home 3-2, thanks to the scoring of Toni Martinez, (8 minutes), Mehdi Taremi (61 minutes) and Marko Grujic (75 minutes).
The next day, FC Porto will visit the third place in the standings, Benfica (66 points), to play the Lusitanian soccer classic with three dates ahead after the clash.
