There were two red cards in the first half, and few opportunities for both sides to open the scoring but after 90 minutes, neither side was able to scratch.

Only 8 minutes into the match, León's Omar Fernández was sent off after the VAR ruled that he inadvertently buried his cleats on the opponent's ankle.

The rest of the first half was dominated by San Luis, but to the benefit of León 'Los Potosinos' were unable to take advantage of being one man up.

Germán Berterame of Atlético San Luis was sent off just seconds before halftime whistle after fouling Stiven Barreiro on a similar play as that of Omar Fernández in the 8th minute.

Things did not improve for 'La Fiera' even after Ariel Holan called on superstar Luis Montes to take the stage. For the final stretch of the match, San Luis parked the bus and dared León to score any which way possible.

we struggle to score against clubs that park the bus on us, and we were unable to convert the few opportunities that we had.

In the 86th minute, Emmanuel Gigliotti scored a goal off of a deflection by Marcelo Barovero but minutes later VAR overturned the goal.

Ariel Holan's squad are now on a scoreless drought being unable to score in the last 320+ minutes of league play. The last time León scored was in match week 8 against Tigres courtesy of Ángel Mena – who sat out tonight serving a 1 game suspension due to accumulation of yellow cards.

The next match for León will be on November 3rd, 2021 against defending champs Cruz Azul. Next week, León will travel to California to play two friendly matches against Mazatlán and Chivas during the international break.
