The Historic Nahuel Guzmán
SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Friday, July 19, 2019.- The Clausura 2019 tournament was spectacular for Nahuel Guzmán, who was fundamental to the regular phase of the tournament and pivotal in the Playoffs. In addition, ‘Patón’, as he is nicknamed, could reach, in the opening match of the Apertura 2019 tournament, 100 consecutive matches as a starter and playing the full 90 minutes.
Guzmán currently enjoys a privileged position in the felines’ Short Tournament history, as the player with the highest number of full games played uninterruptedly, surpassing his teammate in the defense, Hugo Ayala, who reached 90 matches.
In the Liga, the Argentine is just behind his fellow countryman from América, Agustín Marchesín, who has a total of 114 Liga and Playoff matches.
‘Patón’ has also just surpassed 200 Liga and Playoff matches wearing the Tigres shirt, for a total of 202 so far, which makes him a true iron man.
