Atlas started the final final of 2022 with a 2-0 home win in the first leg. It was a score that flattered the home team, as Pachuca had periods of dominance, and perhaps it was enough to even the score, but Atlas’ good defensive actions led them to a favorable position to win their second title in as many seasons. Now Atlas travels to Pachuca with a two-goal advantage as they try to become the third team to win a two-time championship since the start of short tournaments after Puma in 2004 and Leon in 2014.

The first half started with both teams scoring their best eleven goals, and Atlas even brought back Emanuel Aguilera, who dropped out of the semifinals due to injury. From the very beginning, Pachuca went on the strike, even while on the road. Soon Atlas launched a counterstrike, and the game turned into an equal game: both teams owned the ball and went on the strike, but did not create chances. After receiving the ball, Pachuca almost got a good chance when a pass into the penalty area was close to hitting Romario Ibarra, but Atlas goalkeeper Camilo Vargas was able to reach the ball. In the game that followed, Javier Abella’s good shot into the Atlas penalty area was deflected by Pachuca goalkeeper Oscar Ustari with the score 1-0 Luis Reyes. It was a great moment for Atlas and for Reyes, who scored the first goal for the second time in a row in the final series. Pachuca was close to equalizing the score when, after a three-on-three strike, Kevin Alvarez received a shot that was out of reach for Nicolas Ibanez and Ibarra.

after, Aviles Hurtado made an excellent inconspicuous pass into the penalty area, but Eric Sanchez missed, and Vargas was able to knock the ball out from under his feet. Atlas responded with a great shot into the penalty area of Reyes, who was out of reach of Julio Fortune. after, Julian Quinones received the ball in the penalty area, and his shot was blocked by an excellent ustari diver. After a after corner kick, Quinones got up to head the ball and it almost went over the goal. After the race, Alvarez tried to strike, which turned into a finish, forcing Vargas to show a good result. From outside the penalty area, Edgar Zaldivar struck a long-range shot that forced Ustari to make an excellent Savage. After the ball deflected into the trajectory of Alvarez, he struck a strong shot that forced Vargas to make an even better save before the ball was deflected by Hugo Nervo moments before Ibanez was able to hit the goal. Then Victor Guzman shot his head into the penalty area from close range, but Vargas scored well again. The whistle blew at half-time, and although the game started slowly, once it started, it started.

The second half began with Pachuca replacing Romario Ibarra with Fernando Navarro. After the ball hit the penalty area, Anibal Chala struck with his head, and then Furch struck from close range, but the ball went past the goal. after, Aldo Rocha received the ball from outside the penalty area, but his shot also missed the goal. Pachuca replied that the ball hit the penalty area, and Ibanez struck with his left foot, which hit the post. Guzman shot his head into the penalty area, but Vargas scored well again. after, the ball hit the penalty area, and Alvarez had a great chance to score, but his shot missed the goal. Atlas replaced Emanuel Aguilera with Diego Barbosa. A brawl continued in front of the referee, for which Rocha and Gustavo Cabral received yellow cards. Atlas then replaced the issue Anderson Santamaria with Gaddy Aguirre. Pachuca after replaced Aviles Hurtado with Roberto de la Rosa.

In the second half, Pachuca had more possession of the ball, although the game was not as open as in the first half. Atlas replaced Julio Furcha with Jeremy Marquez. Pachuca had several chances when Ibanez blocked a feed into the penalty area, and then shot into the penalty area, which was saved by Vargas. Pachuca then replaced Victor Guzman with Jesus Hernandez. Then, in compensated time and contrary to the course of the game, Julian Quinones stole the ball, went one-on-one and passed Ustari with a left foot kick, leading 2-0. Atlant won a landslide victory, and perhaps the score flattered them, but now they had a good advantage in the second leg.

Atlas scored a key victory and is in a great position to win its second title in a row. Pachuca had possession of the ball and at times seemed to dominate the match in pursuit of the decisive goal, but the magnificent play of goalkeeper Camilo Vargas and the magnificent play of Julian Quinones made the score promising for Atlas to win another title. However, Pachuca will be a tough opponent at home, and Atlas has just returned from a match in Monterrey, in which they lost only a few minutes, and the poor composition of Miguel Herrera prevented them from entering the field. Sometimes they lost control of the ball in the second half, and it can be considered that they were lucky that they did not draw. Nevertheless, there will be a very interesting match on Sunday, and I hope it will be as exciting as the first match.
