In soccer, there are fun matches, and then there is what took place on Christmas night between Tigres and America. In the Liga MX final, the teams were level at 1-1 after the first leg, with the second leg finishing 0-0 on Sunday after 90 minutes. With no away goals rule, the match went to extra time and more, producing one of the most wild matches of the year. Here's how it went down.

Oribe Peralta of America, on 56 minutes somehow missed this chance from a yard out. He must have been on Santa's naughty list.

Then Tigres was about to score a goal that would have been enough to win it, but Andre-Pierra Gignac's header hit off the crossbar.

Then the teams went into extra time, and that is where a brawl started after a Gignac approached America coach Ricardo Lavolpe. The teams would finish the match nine on nine after four red cards, two from this incident.

I can go on forever, baby.

Then, on 95 minutes, America scored the opener with a header, as Edson Alvarez finished into the far side of the goal.

Then a cop gets pushed. No joke. Tigres scores on 119 minutes thanks to Jesus Duenas (a fitting name on Christmas), who runs to the corner to celebrate and jumps and shoves a cop for no good reason. Thankfully, the cop was cool with it.

And then, the penalty kicks, where Tigres goalkeeper Nahuel Guzman became a club legend with three saves.

A brilliant comeback by Tigres. And while Guzman was so key, we all know who the good luck charm is. The bellhop from The Plaza Hotel in 1992, Cedrick. Actor Rob Schneider, who is a huge Tigres fan because his wife
is, was pretty darn pleased with the result.

This gets my vote for most entertaining match of the year. Some goals, penalty kicks, red cards, a little brawl and a bit of Duece Bigalow, what more could one want?
