The French striker qualified this Sunday during Tigres's big victory over Puebla (6-1).
Mute at two meetings, André-Pierre Gignac found the net this Saturday in Mexico. And in what way! On the 16th day of the opening tournament, during the Tigres' grand victory over Puebla (6-1), the French had a fourfold increase. He first allowed team equality (20), then scored a sublime free kick right before the break (45).
Turning the locker on the left, the former Marseilles propelled a curved blow on the opposite side (49 years) before finishing the festival with a lob as an improbably remarkable: offset at the entrance to the opposite surface, APG tries to strike without control, but his shot flies into the sky before returning just below the goalkeeper's bar (65 '). A very unintentional achievement, but which symbolizes the total success that accompanied the French striker, the author of a decisive transition to the fourth goal of the Tigers.
Thanks to this exceptional performance, Gignac took the lead with 14 goals in 15 games, three better than Julio Furch (Laguna). Tigers, who have the best attack on the Mexican championship, are back in fifth place, eight points behind Cruz Azul.
