Tiago Volpi took center stage during the duel between Toluca and FC Juárez on matchday 16 of the Clausura 2023 and he did not do it for making a great save, but for scoring a penalty goal.
In the final minutes of the first half, a maximum penalty was signaled in favor of the Red Devils and the Brazilian goalkeeper took the ball to collect it.
Volpi faced his colleague, Alfredo Talavera, who tried to distract him, but Tiago kept his concentration and tricked his counterpart to open the scoring.
This is Volpi’s second goal in the Clausura 2022. On matchday 14, he scored against Antony Silva from Puebla, with the same penalty. That duel ended 2-0 in favor of the Red Devils.
And, in addition, it is the third that he has achieved in the MX League, after the one scored in the Apertura 2022 in the duel in which Toluca beat Santos 4-3. On that occasion the victim was Carlos Acevedo.
It is worth mentioning that, as a goalkeeper for Gallos Blancos, Volpi already had three goals, although they were all scored in qualifying rounds, so they are not in the official record.
The Brazilian, who is increasing his account in Mexican soccer, is on the prestigious list of goalkeepers who have scored in Liga MX and here we present them to you.
