Edgar Castillo may be coming off the bench with new club San Luis, but he made a case for more playing time with a goal in San Luis’ 2-1 loss to Puebla.
Castillo came off the bench in the 55th minute of the match and scored nine minutes later, hitting a left-footed shot from distance into the back of the net. The goal was Castillo’s first of the season.
Sacha Kljestan didn’t score, but he made his regular season debut for Anderlecht in the club’s 4-1 rout of recently-promoted Eupen. Kljestan started the match on the bench, but came off it in the 37th minute as teammate Lucas Biglia went down with an injury.
