Nahuel Guzmán, the Iron Tiger

SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Monday, May 16, 2016.- Across 17 days and two Playoff matches, there was one man who played all the available minutes in the tournament: the goalkeeper  Nahuel Guzmán was that ‘Iron Tiger’ who was there for the Tigres’ total of 1,710 minutes in the 2016 Winter Tournament (Clausura).

‘Patón’, as he is known, was irreplaceable in the regular tournament and the Quarter Finals. He played 19 matches for Tigres and conceded 23 goals, 19 during the 17 ‘Clausura’ fixtures, to become the goalkeeper who conceded the third least goals.

Of the 23 goals he conceded up to the Quarter Finals, 16 were from inside the penalty area and 7 from outside. In fact, throughout the tournament just one penalty was awarded against Tigres and two in the direct elimination series with Rayados, both of which he saved.
