This is what you call “making the most of your shot”
When Monterrey scored an 86th-minute penalty to equalize against Morelia, all appeared to be lost for Los Canerios. Anything short of a win would’ve sealed their relegation (in Liga MX, the one club with the lowest points per game ratio over the previous three years is relegated). But then, at the start of injury time, Raul Ruidiaz poked in a winner that not only saved Morelia from relegation, but earned them a spot in the playoffs (at the expense of Club America) and put him atop the Clausura top scorers list.
This was a rollercoaster of emotions on the verge of flying off the tracks into a fiery pit of despair until Ruidiaz climbed up to the front car, reaffixed the wheels to the track, and rode that sucker right to the ice cream tent.
As a result of his heroics, Chiapas get relegated instead, despite winning earlier in the day. Meanwhile, Miguel Herrera’s Tijuana finish atop the table for the second time in a row.
Tijuana becomes the first team since league switched to short tournaments to finish as the leader of consecutive tournaments. #LigaMXEng
