America spoke on the field and with a goal from naturalized Mexican Julian Quinones they extended their dominance over Cruz Azul, in a duel where a world record for disallowed goals was tied

The six consecutive victories with which it reached the 191st edition of the 'Clasico Joven' were of no use to Cruz Azul  because at the right time América spoke on the field to get out of their football slump and beat them with total dominance in the first half where the goal of the naturalized Mexican Julián Quiñones was enough to build the definitive 1-0 victory.

It really was shown that America knows how to play this type of games and that for that reason they are the true champions, because the score really came out cheap for the celestials, since They annulled four goals against Quiñones himself, which would have once again established a scandalous marker in this rivalry and which made it clear that the moment the cement team led by the Argentine is going through Martín Anselmi is a mirage.

The victory of the Águilas simply shows that there is a lot of difference between both teams, because while the team led by the Brazilian André Jardine is to continue as protagonist and favorite for the title.

It is a fact that the cement workers had a “Waterloo” in the first 45 minutes giving the sensation of leaving with fear, leaving aside the intensity of the previous eight games where, except for Pachuca, they overcame Mazatlán, Xolos , Atlético San Luis, Queretaro, Tigres and Leon, as well as a draw with FC Juárez, but now against América it was of no use to them.

It seemed that Jardine studied them very well, since with the game open on the strikers with the Mexican-American Alejandro Zendejas and Julián Quinones drove the Cruzazulina defense crazy in the first half.

Quinones ties the world record for goals disallowed by the VAR

Precisely the dominance of América in the first half caused Julián's four goals to be disallowed Quinones will tie a world record for scores invalidated by the VAR as happened in the Italian match on July 25, 2020, when in the match between Sassuolo and Napoli the referee annulled four goals for the visiting team so that the Neapolitans won 2-0.

The first disallowed goal occurred four minutes after the 1-0 that Quinones himself scored 3 minutes into action, when the American striker appeared in front of the rival goal to finish with a header, placing the ball hit the corner, however the naturalized Mexican's goal was disallowed due to an offside position.

Shortly after, Quinones himself was present on the scoreboard when, in a series of rebounds inside the area, he nested the ball in the nets but was ahead at the time of the auction. The third disallowed goal went to the Chilean Diego Valdés when he sent the ball to the back, but he was ahead when the Cruz Azul defense crossed the line and the goal was disallowed.

Finally six minutes later, Julián himself Quinones found the ball inside the area and pushed the ball into the nets, but again he was ahead in his intention to resolve the play, he was only a few centimeters ahead of the defenders to declare the four goals disallowed and tie the record that was four years ago. He won the Italian match.

Now to Quinones the play review system of the Liga MX annulled four plays in the first half to tie that world record that, if it had been validated, would have given a scandalous score in another edition of the capital classic.

Simply beyond 1-0 It was clear that Cruz Azul is far from being a reality and that America had only gone through a crisis in the last three games, but that it has returned to its level after beating the cement workers with authority.
