Julio Furch leads Liga MX in goals and assists

18 de Septiembre del 2018 3:26 pm.

Julio Furch has participated in 11 of the 17 goals scored by los Guerreros in the 2018 Apertura with seven goals and four assists over nine games. 

The 86th minute penalty scored in los Guerreros' 3-0 victory over Leon was the Argentine forward's 100th goal in the first division, and it happened to come on his current club0s 35th anniversary.

"We knew that the fans wanted to celebrate," he said with a smile. "Luckily the victory was given, although it was a bit complicated in the first part of the game, but iit was good to see so many people celebrate after the great victory."

Crediting the collective performance of his teammates, he added: "I feel very happy for the great work of my teammates because they're really the ones who enable me and make everything a little easier, so I thank them and our coaching staff for the confidence."

That confidence Furch has gained this tournament comes, in part, thanks to Santos' almost impeccable home record in 2018, amassing a record of 12 victories, two draws, and only one loss in all phases of league play in 2018.

"It's important to always try to get three points at home," he concluded.  "We know we are almost halfway through the tournament and it is essential to keep add(ing points) to reach as high (a position in the table) as possible."
