4. MEXICO: Busy Pachuca gets result with reserves
Pachuca tied Toluca, 1-1, in the first leg of the Mexican semifinals using
mainly reserves on Wednesday. The regulars were rested for Thursday's Copa Sudamericana first-leg final on Thursday against Chile's Colo Colo (TV: Fox
Sports en Espanol, 8 pm ET).
Pachuca will advance to the Mexican league final with a tie in Sunday's leg because the Mexican league uses regular-season records as a tiebreaker.
Toluca's Bruno Marioni opened the scoring in the 54th minute but Luis
Angel Landin exploited a keeper mistake for the 70th minute equalizer.
In the other semifinal, Club America hosts Chivas Guadalajara on Thursday (TV:
Telefutura, 10 pm PT).
