Triverio, Da Silva Take Toluca to 2-0 Victory over Tigres UANL

MONTERREY, Mexico – Enrique Triverio and William Da Silva scored a goal each on Saturday to give Toluca a 2-1 victory over Tigres UANL, who had 29 games without a loss in their home venue Stadium University.

Triverio and Da Silva each scored at the 53rd-minute and 63rd-minute marks, respectively, while Andre Pierre Gignac got the Tigres’ only goal at the 15th minute.

After a defeat against Cruz Azul, the Tigres were looking for the victory from the get-go and took the lead thanks to a header from Gignac. However, in the 22nd minute, Guido Pizarro was shown a red card in a controversial decision which changed the rest of the game.

Ismael Sosa stepped on the area and was about to stretch the Tigres’ lead, but Toluca remained calm and imposed its dominance in the second half.

At the 53rd minute, Luis Mendoza’s cross found Triverio, who scored the tie with a header.

Toluca went for more and, at the 63rd minute, secured another goal from Da Silva, who received a cross from Luis Quiñones and shot at the post to give his team the victory.

At the 70th minute, the Tigres’ midfielder Javier Aquino was also shown a red card for offending the referee twice, after which the Tigres could do little to recover from.

Toluca has now climbed from the ninth to fifth place in the standings with seven points, while the Tigres are down at eighth with six points.

In the match between Leon and Queretaro, Leon secured an easy 4-0 win over its opponent with Andres Mosquera (m. 10), Yairo Moreno (m. 35), Maximiliano Cerato (m. 54) and Luis Montes (m. 90) each scoring a goal.
