It was a disastrous final ten minutes in our game against Cruz Azul at the weekend. Guido Pizarro was sent off for a second yellow card with five minutes remaining, then Hugo Ayala was also shown a red after full-time.
We appealed against both decisions, and the FMF returned their verdict earlier today.
It was mixed news; Hugo Ayala’s appeal was successful, but Pizarro’s was not.
It means the centre-back will be available for our trip to Leon on Saturday – but Pizarro will have to have to serve a one-game ban.
Jimenez to Return?
It’s certainly a blow, but it’s not as bad as losing both of them. Presumably, Tuca will now move Jesus Duenas back into center midfield after he played the last couple of games at right-back, and reinstate Israel Jimenez to the back four.
Is the FMF’s decision fair? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
