Pachuca will play against Atlas the Final of the Liguilla Clausura 2022 by eliminating América after winning the second leg 3-0, 4-1 aggregate in the Liga MX Semifinals .
The Eagles were able to open the scoring before minute 5 with a couple of opportunities, first with Diego Valdés who missed two heads-ups against Ustari and then a shot by Richard Sánchez that the Argentine saved well .
At minute 13, a pass into space that Avilés Hurtado reached made the Colombian take out a measured cross so that Romario Ibarra made it 1-0 against Jorge Sánchez's weak mark on the right wing.
Pachuca was able to keep 10 players due to a foul by Nico Ibáñez who was only shown a yellow card at 19', with everything and the VAR review . The rain affected the game by generating several fouls and it was cut.
At 44 ', Erick Sánchez made it 2-0 with a shot outside the area hit the post that Memo Ochoa could not contain and that unleashed madness in the Hidalgo Stadium, the Clausura 2022 Final was very close.
For the second half, América came out with everything to discount, they had a shot from Bruno Valdez just wide , as well as a shot from Federico Viñas, who came out for Henry Martin for the last 30 minutes.
When the Eagles were closer to their goal, a mortal whiplash from the Tuzos put the final nail in the coffin with Romario Ibarra 's brace at 66', the azulcrema team was already on the canvas.
'Pocho' Guzmán was close to making the scoring more scandalous with a shot that hit the post and then crashed into the back of Memo Ochoa who avoided his own goal, as did Luis Chávez with another shot to the post.
Pachuca will play its tenth Final in its history where it will seek the seventh title for its showcases. He hadn't made it to a championship game since the 2016 Clausura that he defeated Monterrey .
