Although Federico Viñas did not play, he was an eligible player on the bench when his name was not registered to participate with América against Atlas. That is, it would proceed as an improper alignment.
Will Atlas win three points at the table despite losing 2-0 on the court? The regulations are clear and it would not be surprising if the Guadalajara club were awarded the victory 3-0. The funny thing would be that the authorities would give him, in a game, more goals than he has done on the field during the entire tournament.
In a press conference, Diego Cocca assured that he hopes that Liga MX will take over the matter, because he also felt very affected by the refereeing during the match, since the whistler controversially expelled a player at 26 ‘and he scored a penalty against 39 ‘, despite the fact that it was finally Henry Martín who stepped on defender Brayton Vázquez in the area and not the other way around.
Regulation on misalignment
“We are governed by a regulation. Today he hurt us with the issue of expulsion and it is very clear about including players. Viñas was not eligible on the roster and he was warming up. Let’s hope the league intercedes ”, commented the Argentine, who, above all, regretted that the whistles ruined a match where Atlas started very excited. “The expulsion and the penalty I did not understand.”
Cocca appreciated the game his team made despite staying with one less very early and although he assured that it is not his responsibility to appeal the improper alignment, he hopes that Liga MX will do its thing.
