America defeated Galos Blancos de Queretaro 1–0 in the opening duel of match day 16.

It wasn't the Eagles' best game, perhaps slowing down after tearing cement workers to pieces,

but it was enough to defeat the worst team in the tournament,

who resisted according to their strengths. Sixth consecutive game in which America scored at least one goal

and added 361 minutes to the best, fourth without comment. America kept the rosters at bay during the first half,

some concerned with destroying rather than building the rosters,

relying on a good dribble and cross from Pablo Barrera and a fine shot from Nahuelpan or Sepulveda.

While the Eagles, with their egos on their backs after last Saturday's exhibition,

little by little, reached the goal of Tono Rodriguez,

who had to work hard to get the ball off Henri Martin's feet in the first half.

The US played a greater role in the expansion, but it took away momentum and surprise.
