The Apertura 2022 is just around the corner and Chivas continues to work hard prior to facing the Bravos of FC Juárez on Opening Day. As part of the preparation, El Rebaño faced off against Necaxa this Friday morning at the Akron Stadium, a match that ended in a 2-goal draw which will be of great use to Ricardo Cadena, who was able to observe all his players in action.

The game was played in 4 35 minute halves, helping both strategists observe all their players and try out some variations in their lay outs. On the following lines you can find out more about how the goals were scored as well as some of the highlights for the Rebaño after this exercise.

These were the goals of the match:

- The first goal of the match didn't take long to fall, as at 15' Gilberto Sepúlveda drove the ball into the opponent's half, where a filtered pass found 'Nene' Beltrán free inside the box, Beltrán crossed his shot with his right to make it 1-0.

- The Rebaño did not drop their intensity and moments later extended their lead, at 20', José Juan Macías broke free on the left flank and tapped the ball past the goalkeeper to make it 2-0.

- Necaxa scored in the final stretch of the second half thanks to Milton Giménez, who took advantage of a loose ball in the area and took a powerful shot that left no chance for the Chivas goalkeeper.

- The team from Aguascalientes made it 2-2 in the third half via Ulises Cardona, who was alert to pickup a bad rebound from the defense and shoot past 'Tala' Rangel.

Key moments:

- José Juan Macías left the match as a precaution after receiving a blow in the play where he scored the goal.

- Fernando Beltrán played his first minutes with the team in this preseason. He just needed 15' to score his goal.

- El 'Pollo' Briseño returned to activity after recouping from the discomfort in his left thigh product of the friendly match against Santos Laguna last week.

- Youth players Dylan Guajardo and Gabriel Martínez returned to play minutes with Guadalajara after the preseason in Barra de Navidad.

- Chapo' Sánchez was tested in different roles on the field, in addition to being used as a right winger, he was also used as an inside back and as a defender on the left.
