Pachuca runs out of gas

In the last 18 months, Pachuca won the 2006 Mexican Clausura, 2006 Copa Sudamericana, 2007 CONCACAF Champions Cup, 2007 Mexican Clausura and 2007 SuperLiga, but the Tuzos have finally run out of gas.

Cruz Azul hammered Pachuca, 4-0, to win, 6-0, on aggregate, while Morelia went through 3-1 on aggregate, despite losing to Club America, 1-0, in the second leg of the Torneo Apertura's repechaje, the play-in to determine the final two teams to play in the quarterfinals.

Uruguayan Richard Nunez scored twice and Argentine striker Cesar Delgado and Jared Borgetti scored once in Cruz Azul's 4-0 win over Pachuca.

Pachuca's loss clears its schedule to participate in next month's FIFA Club World Cup in Japan.
