Mexican league Finals (first leg): Chivas 1-1 Toluca

What we didn't want to happened happened, and Toluca got a tie out of the first leg of the Mexican league finals (and to think I woke up at 5 a.m. CET friday to listen to the second half). The game was tactical as expected (Chivas plays very attacking football, whereas Toluca is pure catenaccio these days). The refereeing was horrible (they didn't signal a penalty), and Toluca got what they went to the Jalisco Stadium for, they got the tie.

The penalty that wasn't awarded below:

Now Chivas has to beat Toluca at their stadium on Sunday either in regular time, extra time or penalties, something the team hasn't pulled off for 9 years. Now would be the time.
